It seems the s5100 has a CONVENTIONAL CCD and a LARGER maximum print size !!

Hello,

I believe you found a typographical error on the Fuji site.

The S9000's ccd records 3488 x 2616 at 9mp fine.

At 300 DPI, this is enough pixels to make an 11.62 x 8.72 inch print.

At 240 DPI, there is enough pixels for a 14.53 x 10.9 inch print.

The other two cameras, numerically, can't match the S9000 in this category.

Regards, Nicholas

ahhhhhhhhh!

you forget interpolation and pixel quality

i can consistently get decent 11x14 prints from my 3 meg s3800

i get 16x20 from my 6 meg KM-7D (sometimes a decent 20x30)

?typo? maybe, maybe not

lol, john

Hi John,

No, I didn't forget interpolation.

The poster was talking about Fuji's listing of "Maximum Print Size".

I agree with you, without stipulating the DPI for such prints, Fuji's statement makes no sense.

I have already resized to 30 x 60 ( inches that is ) from 6Mp.

Regards, Nicholas

just a random thought:

would you prefer 200 hi quality dpi or 300 so-so quality dpi ?

if i were selling real estate it wpuld be 'location, location, location'

Huh?
Now I'm getting confused, I thought you could print much larger with the 9MP fine
mode or RAW and some PP.

Am I missing something?

Hello All,

Years ago someone enlarged an image from a small Nikon coolpix and covered the side of a building in Manhattan with it. I forgot all the details.

Generally the typical required DPI for prints depends on the required size and usual viewing distance of the image. The larger the image the lower the required DPI, the furter away the image from the viewer the lower the DPI.

I like 300 DPI when I send an image to a lab for a large print.Some labs resize your images downward regarding DPI tospeed uphandling of your image and your image suffers quality loss.

Regards, Nicholas

my point is:

QUALITY - QUALITY - QUALITY

not all pixels are created equal

one'n' meg camera may be capable of much better (ie. larger) prints than another

eg. the s3800 gives me equal print quality to the s7000, but w/o the features

for snapshots i use the s7000 and not the KM 7D (which requires major PP)
