I believe the Kodak site says up to 20"x30". I've never tried that however. 8x10 has been my limit.

I've seen excellent 11 x 17posters from these cameras, can't say about anything bigger.

12x8 are good, 18x12 is pushing it a bit.

Yeah. . . I saw on the kodak web site that you can print photos up to 20"x30".



Do anyone tried it before. . .

Do anyone think the photos will be good ???

How good is good?

At Kodak's specified poster printing size,resolution isaround 72 dpi. This is okay for viewing from a distance of 4-5 feet, but you will definitely see dots if you look at it closely.

Trying resampling one of your pictures to 8 x 10, 72 dpi, then printing it at your printer's lowest resolution and highest speed. The quality of printout will be approximately what you will get at Kodak's maximum (poster) size. You will see dots, no doubt about it.

Still, it's not bad -- after all, 72 dpi is the resolution of many CRT-based monitors.

Where are you planning to have it printed? The copy or print shop could show you samples.
