    will a 16mp compact be of use at iso400 [noise free] or is it better to look for 12mp version[ixus]

    A bit difficult to answer to be honest as it would depend on the camera.

    I have a 16Mp shirt-pocket compact. It seems fine up to ISO 800.

    Precisely, Ken.

    Irrespective of whether we are talking about MF, dSLR, M4/3 or compact, each generation gets better than the one before - especially in terms of sensor technology.

    You would be better off with a camera with a BSI (Back-side illumination) CMOS sensor, than a CCD sensor, as the BSI CMOS sensors give better low-light performance and lower noise. (As well as quicker continuous shooting generally as well as Full HD video etc).
