this is a sample from the Casio EX-Z1000 (10MP)

this is a sample from the Fujifilm Finepix F50fd (12MP)

in my opinion, the Casio Z1000 is slightly better (even though its 10MP and Fuji 12MP), the letters are more sharp and clear, with less noise (I dont examine color accuracy)

I cant imagine how can Casio (that is not a big brand in digital cameras) produce so fine quality and how can Casio produce so poor performance in your test (its lower than the 8MP Canon, while Casio is 10MP)

I afraid we will never reach with a compact camera, the OCR results we get from a SLR

also, is there any chance to acchieve more than 98% OCR success? 100% maybe? what is needed? more decent camera? more megapixels? more pixel quality? (98% can be alot of if we are talking about many books)

in this nice site I couldnt find any 10-12MP compact camera that produces better image quality than Casio EX-Z1000 and Fujifilm F50fd (I didnt look for SLR)

I was thinking to buy one between Casio EX-1080 (10MP), Casio EX-Z1200 (12MP), Fujifilm Finepix F50fd (12MP)

but I cant find the "golden mean", the optimum combination of megapixels and image quality

it is known that cameras with more megapixels produce lower image quality photos, the more megapixels the less image quality (the main is noise and sharpness)

so would a 10MP camera perform better than a 12MP camera in OCR?
