I use the FZ-1 too. The other cams are tempting but every time I print an 8X10, I think, why consider it? I never tried 11X14... did you use interpolation tools to get this large?

print services have very good interpolation themselfs. The blow up the photo to 300/600/...dpi (depends on service) before printing

As TimV mentioned....I also made my image 300 dpi when sending in to the place that did the prints for me. EZPrints.com. They are beautiful. I format the size to 11x14 at 300 dpi. It works fine. Other than getting them as sharp as possible with USM in Photoshop...that is all I did.
