If you want to post your photos online, email them or make small prints for your family albums, then it is enough for you to look for a camera with low resolution. For example, 2 megapixels camera will create an image that could be a high quality 6×4 print. The majority of entry level SLR cameras start at about 6 megapixels. And thus if this is all you need, the amount of megapixels does not have to be a great concern for you.
