There seem to be lots of reviews by people who have never actually used the camera - just read and repeated the marketing spiel from Polaroid. Has anyone actually used this thing? And if so, is the actual quality of the pictures any better than a 4mp camera? Or are they just "bigger"; but totally unuseable at maximum size?

Thanks

I've been trying to find out if it is something called "interpolated" pictures, which is something I heard about - it basically uses information to fill in the gaps between pixels, to make a clearer picture. At first I thought that's what this was, but I cannot find a really detailed spec anywhere, but I don't think it is this kind.

But you seem to be right about the reviews, I cannot find a "hand-written" one. This does seem to be a very good price though.

More info on Polaroid i1032:

Polaroid i1032 : Polaroid Corporation has silently introduced their fist 10 Megapixel digital camera. Although camera manufacturers almost all stated: "The Megapixel race is over" others like Polaroid see opportunities to enter a digital camera segment where they can be one of the few who have a 10 Megapixel digital camera available. The new Polaroid i1032 digital camera features 10.0 Megapixel resolution and is developed for the entry level photographer. Be entering the 10 Megapixel market the Polaroid i1032 camera has only few competitors to deal with.

"Yeahbut". 10 megapixels taken with a rubbish lens is not going to be as good as 2 megapixels with a Zeiss. Hence the interest in whether anyone has actually used one of these things in anger. Sounds like they haven't; so I'm looking at this from a "£135 for something that may be rubbish? Perhaps not" point of view. And I "am" in the market for a decent snapshot taking digital camera; but in the absence of any sample photos, for example; how can I tell if it's a good deal or not?

A relatively laymans definition of interpolation here.
A more technical version here.
I can't find any good specs on this either. Best bet is to go to Jessops and play with one.
Timbellina is correct - megapixels don't matter nearly as much as a good lens, but if you're just looking for a good point and shoot camera this will probably do the job.
Bear in mind it doesn't have an optical viewfinder though - you're completely reliant on the LCD screen.

I dont see anyone honestly needing a 10.0 megapixel camera.

My fuji finepix f10 has 6 million I dont use those!

Nice post and probably alot cheaper than anywhere else for this specific camera but imo, I think you could buy a higher quality camera for this kind of money.

Personally I dont think many people would benefit from a 10mp camera unless they were wanting to print out a3 posters, I bought myself a Fuji s5600 its only 5.1mp but it has a 10x optical zoom which is brilliant in a camera that only cost £160:thumbsup:

[SIZE=2]Agreed, while anything above even 4mp is overkill for most - how many times have you taken a picture where the main object you want to focus on is off-centre? (either by accident, or having later noticed something in the image you had earlier missed). In such cases if you have lots of megapixels to play with, you can simply crop the region of the image you want for high quality prints. Also, if you do any form of post-processing on your digital images, extra megapixels are also handy - this is especially true for images taken in dark (night/low-light) settings where image noise is inevitable. Here having many megapixels increases the signal-to-noise ratio for better quality prints.

Mind that even the best digital images printed on an rubbish printer will still come out as rubbish prints...

I've been told by someone who knows their stuff that 4mp is plenty and anymore than 5/6 mp is a waste. It's not how many you have, it's the QUALITY of the pixels. A decent 4mp camera will be better than an average 6mp because of the quality of those pixels...:thumbsup:

I couldn't agree more with the comments here about megapixels, quality is far, far more important. I would always choose a high quality camera from a known brand like Canon, Nikon, Fuji, Kodak etc. with a lower megapixel sensor rather than a cheaper brand with a high MP value simply because having a load of noisy pixels is worthless.

On the other hand though, I disagree with the comment that you don't need more than 4MP - although this may be true for many people and I would always go for a quality camera first, one of the big advantages not mentioned here about higher megapixel sensors is the flexibility for cropping with a larger picture. I currently use an 8MP SLR (thanks to a deal here!) which is 2MP over my last 6MP Fuji - the additional 2MP means I can shoot a picture which is not perfectly framed, and then crop/cut it after so my final picture is down to 6MP which is about right for the large prints I get made and it looks properly framed. With the Fuji 6MP I had to take more care with actually taking the pictures because if I had to crop it to tidy it up, I would drop below 6MP leaving it a bit iffy to get a good large size print out of it.

That's right. I met a wedding photographer once who used a 16 mega-pixel camera. He'd blown up his images as big as a door once to be used in banners, etc without losing much quality. It was quite amazing. Other than that, he didn't really use it that much...:roll:

Damn Fuji and their insistence on using xd cards. I tend to recycle cards from my Phones which all take SD. So my current Sanyo Xacti E6 is using my 1GB from my Mio, since I now have a 2GB for the Mio.

As soon as I buy a 4GB for the Mio the camera will get the 2GB. I really couldn't be doing with buying into another, and more expensive, memory format.

Great for non-SD users. Terrible for us SD fans.
