Digital cameras with resolution of 3 Megapixel would seem a bit outdated these days, though just a few years ago they were the de facto standard for compact cameras. However there are a still a few of the best cameras with resolution of 3 MP which are still available in the market.

The megapixel count affects the image size and not the overall picture quality, so a 3 MP count should suffice for most point and shoot cameras if you were not planning on enlarging them to poster size prints. This is more than sufficient for most consumers dabbling in photography.

Since the sensor size and the lens as well as the camera's processor engine most affect the overall picture quality some of the best digital cameras with 3 MP or more resolution can still get you good quality pictures.
