    Are there measurements apart from the number of pixels that will determine whether a digital camera is good enough to buy instead of a film camera? E.g. lense quality, colour reproduction, contrast comparisons etc..?

    Lens quality is a key factor, as is the processing of the image, signal to noise ratio and overall control of exposure. There's a comparison suggested that a CCD would need to deliver 14 million pixesl to be at the same standard as film, but very few users would ever see the advantage of having film quality a few ever push film to its limits. A 2million pixel camera will give you a good 10x8in picture and 5 million is as much as most of us would ever need.

    I think the LCD is also important. I've used a digital camera where the pics looked okay on the viewfinder but were blurred when I got home and looked at them on a computer. The newer camerras have a zoom display where you can magnify the area to check sharpness.
