    larry, have you tried letting photoshop bicubic interpolate for you? I've heard it works but my printer only does up to 8x10 so I can't tell the difference, saturated both ways. (o' how I yearn for a large format printer)

    larry, 300 is also my favorite number. However a 7 mp camera is just too darn expensive (sigh) for shooting 8x10s because they only come in SRL. Although I only get 260 dpi at 5mp I find that it is moderately acceptable for the price.

    Anyone know of a way to make the ink last longer, such as a UV coating?

    4300

    4500

    I like the 4500, I think I'll have to save up for it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    spec, at the price of the 4500 or a little mre you could get a more professional camera(more buttons). Even CNET recommends going with the G series insteat of that camera, the whole swivel thing is cool looking but really isn't that useful except on maybe a video camera. Don't get me wrong, you can't take a bad picture with a 4mp Nikon, but I think you could do better at that price.

    Joseph,
    I rarely resize up from photoshop. When i do, its only by a few percentage. Enlarging a picture in Photoshop is like using the "digital" zoom of the camera. They both artificially add detail that wasn't there in the first place.

    I love the incredible detail that an inkjet can produce, but I hate how photos fade after only a few years. I'm not willing to buy the super expensive archival ink and paper. Instead, I prefer to send my digital files to places like Shutterfly or dotPhoto and have them print my photos on real photo paper using the traditional photo developing techniques.

    About the Nikon cameras, the ability to swivel is extremely important to me. I like taking pictures at all sorts of weird angles. With something that can't swivel, it makes it some pics impossible.

    Well, I got my camera today. The only problem I have found with it is that it has one dead pixel on the lcd. Not sure if they will replace that for me or not. Most likely not. I will have a few sample images later tonight.
