The megapixel wars are over, or so they say.
In the ferocious market for sub-£200 compact cameras, precious few have a pixel count higher than 12 million.
The Canon 980IS has 14.7 megapixels but the Panasonic Lumix FS30 is joining otherwise rare company with its 14.1MP sensor.
It's easy to be sceptical, but all that resolution is - in theory - useful. The FS30's best-quality images are 4,320 x 3,240, which gives plenty of room for cropping in.
