Large prints

2 weeks 5 days ago - 2 weeks 5 days ago #706646 by Jessa Layton
Happy New Year PT!  

My Nikon D750 has a 24.3MP sensor.   Is there a way to know the limits in size I can expect for large prints that have good quality?  Now assuming you had a excellent lens being used, is sensor size holding the ability back for larger prints?  OR...?

Thank you for helping me understand this.

MPs are the essence of printing and its quality depends
largely on the size of it.

At 300 ppi, a 24.3MP sensor will give splendid 11"X14".
One may use lower ppi or even go for larger prints but in,
both cases, a quality loss will be noticeable the more one
will stretch it at the same viewing distance. HTH!

Light is free… capturing it is not!

You can print much larger than that with that camera and get solid results.

I always tell the story of the early days of digital when I asked a professional printer
to make an A1 print of a Canon 350D 8MP image. 

It hung in a gallery. 
People walked up to it and inspected the detail. 

I asked the printer his secret. He said it is the increments in which you enlarge the image. 
He did not want to share detail.

That link does not seem to get you to the right page. I looked around a little and still didn't find the table. I do not have the time today to look further.
