In this crop from a comparison shot between the Canon EOS D60 (digital SLR) and Fuji FinePix F700 (pocket camera), the D60 zoom lens was set a little bit wider. I have cropped out a matching section of the full 3-Mpixel image from each camera, so that the F700 is using more pixels to show the same area. Despite this, I believe the D60 displays more "true" image resolution, and fewer artifacts: examine the texture detail of the woven cloth mat, and the glass flower vase.  I did some USM to sharpen up the D60 imageto better match the F700 frame, since the D60 image is always soft direct from the camera.  Both images were scaled up 200% in Photoshop using nearest-neighbor scaling, to make the image details easier to see on the screen.
