Is there a pixel "limit" beyond which you will not get a better photo?
All ads I see for larger megapixel cameras seem to say "You can print bigger photos".
Does a larger MP automatically mean better resolution?
Thank you in advance for any advice. oO

This is not a simple question and there is no simple answer to it. All things being equal the more pixels the better. But, smaller sensors (generally found in compact cameras) with higher pixel counts generally struggle in low light conditions to the point where their extra pixels start working against them and detail is lost due to excessive noise or the camera trying to control noise.

I would suggest that most decent compact cameras with 6 mega pixels or more will deliver good prints up to A4 size in good light. If you want to go bigger than A4 I would suggest that you start looking at cameras with APS-C size sensors like the NEX and most D-SLRs. As they will generally have better a better lens and processing and also generally perform better in low light.

Like I say, not a simple answer. It would help if you could tell us what you want to use the camera for.
