Re: Compare photo of 16x20 using d3,s and d800?

Moving from a D700 to a D800E was like moving from 35mm film to medium format. My house is full of 16x20 prints from medium format film. The only 35mm shots I have up are 8x10.

You will be getting a 16x24 image out of the camera. So, you would have to crop the ends for a 16x20. To approximate the difference between the cameras, try printing a sample print at 200 ppi (D700) and another at 300 ppi (D800). You could also download one of Nikon's sample images for the D800 (full size JPEGs) and print it at 16x20 (or 16x24).
