beautiful, but not sure if 3.8 qualifies, and I bet it wasn't cheap when new.

author says:

What does cheap mean? When I bought it in 2003, it was a 2 years old camera, so it was cheap then. The technology develops so quickly. Let's compare a new 3mp mobile phone camera and a 9 years old digital camera. Which one has better sensor, better features?
If the mod says the 3.8mp is too much, I will raise red flag.

The author has a point. There's no specifics as far as how old the camera has to be. GL!

Compared to the newer dslr cameras that some of us are using, like the d90 or the 7d a 3.8 mp camera is very cheap!

author says:

Well, unfortunately my 3.8mp entry is the highest in this contest, but I think the resolution is not the most important parameter of a cheap camera. The features and the technical issues of a 9 yrs old p&s camera make it really cheap.
Btw, the contestants usually upload reduced size photos into the contests (mostly less than 1mp), so the cameras' resolution do not give any advantage.
