For optimal detail in images, the greater the resolution, the better. The 11.1-megapixel Canon 1-Ds (left) picks up much more fine detail in photos of our test chart than does the 6.1-megapixel Pentax ist D (right).
The Olympus E-1 includes a mode that uses a blank image to remove noise (the red blotches) from an image. Both photos are 4-second exposures; the photo on the right has the noise-removal mode enabled.
