I am considering buying a digital camera to use for both general and aviation photography. My budget is tight, though, and if at all possible, I don't want to spend more than $200 USD or so. I have seen some relatively good 3MP cameras on different websites and was wondering if these would be acceptable in terms of quality or if I am crazy and should never consider a 3MP camera for aviation photography. I don't necessarily need to upload all my shots to Airliners.net, but would a 3MP photo, shot and edited correctly, have a good chance of being accepted? Or is this whole idea a waste of time? Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.

You might want to check the following web site here in NZ and it has a currency converter to help. Also international orders are minus the 12.5% GST (Goods and Services Tax) which only applies to New Zealand resident orders.

3MP should do just fine. At least I have managed to get most of my Canon EOS D30 photographs uploaded. Of course its often better to have more pixels to work with, but when the budget is tight, that is not an option.
