Default Interpolated??

I was reading the spec of the olympus C-730 and it said this:

3.2-megapixel CCD delivering image resolutions as high as 3,200 x 2,400 pixels (interpolated).


Now what's the biggest size I could print with that kind of intopolation? Would that interpolation make this camera more like a 4mp model?

Thanks
Dave

"Interpolated - Software programs can enlarge image resolution beyond the actual resolution by adding extra pixels using complex mathematic calculations." Taken from Steve's Digicam Dictionary. You can also look at this link:

It all depends of you demands of quality.

Interpolation is - in popular speaking - "pixelguessing".

If you have a lot of black areas in your photo then the interpolation wouldn't be so hard to quality...

Why not make a little test on every large photo you wish to print out. Not two pic will look alike.
