The sensor resolution of TL500 is greater than that of EasyShare M550. However, the difference of 2 MP is not very significant. The more megapixels the camera has, the more detailed and clear the picture will be. The number of megapixels will also affect the maximum size of the photos, which then can be printed without loss of quality.
