[filmscanners] Re: Pixels and Prints


You can get super-sharp prints at 12x18 from a D100 providing the image was
super-sharp to start with (I also uprez with QI). I hand-hold my camera most
of the time, and buying the 80-200 VR AFS lens has made an enormous
difference to my print sharpness. Set the speed to 1/1000 and it is
equivalent to 1/8000 and sharp!! (providing the object is not moving too
fast of course). I control the speed all the time now, and let the Auto ISO
feature take over if I run out of aperture. If you hand-hold at slow/medium
speeds, you will not get super-sharp prints unless you are very good with
differential USM.

You're right that you won't get _super_ sharp images from a 6Mp camera at
11x17, but they'll still be quite sharp at 180ppi. I like the results I get
with a Canon 10D and an Epson 2200. For some subjects with a lot of sharp
lines, you can use tools like the Geniune Fractals plugin to upsize, because
it does a good job of artificially preserving edge sharpness. Another
alternative in some situations, is to shoot multiple shots and stitch them
