Hi clearasmud,

As PistonCupChampion mentions in his response, the number of pixels is only one part of the equiation. A bigger part of image quality is the sensor size. A larger sensor will give you a better quality image.

Here is some information from Wikipedia you may find useful:

Image sensor format

You may find that a bridge camera ('bridge' between DSLR and compact) would better ssuit your needs.
