    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 !
