OK, thanks for that info. Here's another question:
I've noticed that many of the pictures I've seen taken with some of the newer cameras look a lot better than those taken with my 7-year-old cameras. Mine look flatter, less crisp.

Here's an example of a picture taken with a Canon Powershot S100
made around 2000:
Here's the same picture after some processing:
