I am so tired of hearing that you cant get good looking large images from 6 mp
cameras. I am going to go ahead and put my money were my mouth is Heres the
deal. I will give you a
FREE 24x36 dye print from your Jpeg file. (I am assuming it is 2000x3000
resolution roughly)

All i need is your file e-mailed to me, and your address and I will send it out
the next day for sure.

In return for this I would like you to come back and post about the qualty..
sound fair?

Hope that Helps!

it sure did !
i sent him a 3.06 mb file of the shot taken in raw large format converted in 8
bit mode and saved as a jpeg .
shot was taken with the canon 10d , iso 1600 ,70-200 2.8l is
i didn't do any editing at all to the image as it had a cool look about it,
kids all dirty from the football game .
ive seen more sharper pictures but this really captured the moment
thats why i enquired about a larger print .

the quality of the print is excellent , mr savidge done an excellent job and i
want to do another poster size print of a much sharper image in the near
future .
if the quality of a sharp image holds up the way this 1600 iso print did he is
tottaly right about making a nice large poster size print from a smaller file !

he used the 42" HP Designjet 500 dye ink plotter. for the print .
i am gratefull for the print and im going to have the kids sign it and get a
nice frame made .
in conclusion he made a claim and backed it up !
