Hi everyone

The camera I'm using at the moment has 6m MP and 3x Zoom. I don't seem to be getting the clarity I would like especially when the macro is in use. My question is, if I'm thinking of getting a new camera, what would be better....to have more mega pixels and a 3x Zoom, or to have the same amount of mega pixels but with a better zoom. Bearing in mind that I'm no expert photographer, but do get a bit ambitious with what I think is a good shot but then can't get what I want. Hope that makes sense!

Thanks in advance
Sandie
