    For what it is worth 4MP wouldn't fill the screen of my MacBook Pro!

    A 3.1MP file fills the 2560 x 1600 17" screen of my LG17 if I tell it to.

    This is a genuine query. not a wind up.

    Could someone tell me what the plural of octopus (and similar words with Greek roots) is?

    Octopuses is the usual.

    Poseurs go for octopodes, iirc.

    Unless you have 3.14 of them in which case it's octopi. :rolleyes:

    I've never seen more than one, so no need for a plural.

    A bit off the thread (sorry), but talking of the 'correct' plural of Latin words like gymnasium ending 'iums' and not 'ia', what about 'medium' for which the plural used in English is always 'media'? Of course, many users do not understand that 'media' is itself the plural and now use 'medias' and 'media's' as the term for more than one medium. Back to 'paninis' again...

    Meanwhile, back on the thread: perhaps the best stills camera is whatever you can afford and have the skills to use competently, with any video recording functions turned off or ignored.
