    How big is big? I printed a 60" by 40" poster from my 300D shot in JPEG. I think shooting in RAW and converting to TIFF would give you better results IIRC.

    I managed to print out a 3x2m banner before. From normal viewing distance it's actually still pretty good. Just don't expect it to be silky smooth if you go near.
    If you understand my works, it's photography. If you don't, it's art.

    A digital print done at 75 dpi is good enough if you are printing big. It is a misconception that prints have to be printed at 300 dpi in order for it to be effective. Do not expect good quality if you are printing from a 10D file and viewing up close but should be very adequate if viewed from far.

    Stitch a few photos together to get the higher resolution you need? 5 photos on tripod will yield you a 14 - 15 effective mp pic quite easily. Just some ps work involved.

    PS - I have shot and developed 2m x 1.5 m pic with a single 300D raw file. It works easily as a wall paper but it need to be absolutely sharp & well exposed image to start with.

    For best results, shoot in RAW and convert to TIFF 16bit and in photoshop, select your printing dimensions. (the dpi will change but that's nth to worry about)
    eat. drink. shoot
