Default First shots with 300D

Got it out of the box, threw a quick charge on the battery, and let the shutter fly. Mostly preset shots with a few AV/TV/P shots. Feel in love the first shot.

Gratuitous flower shot



Dandilion close



Thought the inside of the Dandilion was neat



Sons egg



My pup


Time to start studying up on the camera.

Printed a couple 8x10 shots that where large/fine and they look good to me. What is the largest print that other users have been able to print without noticable pixelation?

Thanks!

Wow! I really like that "inside" the dandelion shot. Looks like fireworks.
Are you using the lens that came with the kit?
They all look great!

That is the stock lens. I only have a couple other from my previous 35mm.

That original shot of the dandillion at full size is really neat. The focus point was right at the center so those pedals or whatever do look like fireworks, with the detail on the base of each. I can tell I am really going to enjoy this camera.

I am out in the field tomorrow and hope to shoot some great desert landscapes in the rain.

Thanks jms

Here are a few more pictures I have played with:

Very Nice! I haven't tried any oversize prints yet, I'd like to know the answer to this question as well.

I have printed absolutely wonderful 8x10's, but don't have a large format printer to test anything larger.

Anyone try this yet?

I can go larger on my Epson 2200, I'll try a print this weekend and report back.

Default Oversize Prints w/300D

I ran off a 11/14 tonight of a sunset photo on an Epson 2200, lot of sky and orange clouds. Taken with my 300D. Very good quality, no loss of sharpness. I could probably take this up to the next paper size with no noticable loss of quality.

Excellent!

I printed an 11x17 of the building night shot I took (http://www.stevesforums.com/phpBB2/v...ic.php?t=16540) on an HP1700 (I think), but it was only heavy weight white paper. Don't get me wrong, it looked good, but I would love to see photo paper and HQ output.

Thanks for the response.

I have printed several jaw dropping 13x19 borderless prints with my canon i9100. Thats as large as I can go but I have found that for framing purposes I tend to print mostly 8x10 since I can pick up a ready to go frame at a local store.
