Thread: 80dpi 8"x11" inkjet printout - I BELIEVE :)

    Default 80dpi 8"x11" inkjet printout - I BELIEVE :)

    I've finally got a Canon S800 to replace my clogged Epson printer (My first Canon product!). I'll post detailed comments about it later but for one of my printouts, I printed a heavily cropped image that amounted to 160 dpi at 8"x11" (since my camera interpolates, the 'real' dpi should be 1/2 that at 80dpi)

    The print was amazing. I now BELIEVE the claims that D30 can print up to A3

    What's your image size? 12 or 6 megapixels?

    Actually, the modern inkjets are VERY good. I've printed 1600x1200 (2mp) files at 8x10 with great results too. And that's like 150dpi....

    I printed a 3mp D30 file (converted from ISO 800 RAW) at 10 x 15" on an ancient Epson Stylus Photo EX. Brilliant. And it's not even Premium Glossy Photo Paper....

    Digital rules.

    the actual pixel count (of the crop) was 1280x1794 (since the S2 is technically a 6Mp camera, this means that the image was 640x897 that was later upsampled to 1280x1794)

    So, this means that a 640x800 image can print to 8x10... I really wouldn't have believed it until the print came out.

    I interpolatedthe image further in photoshop (to avoid letting the printer driver do the work)
