In this case it would be a picture to hang at home, so it needs to be able to be examined from a few inches. There seems to be a fair debate on line with confusion between DPI and PPI. Guys, I came to DPreview for a definitive answer. Thanks if anyone is able to help resolve this.


Even if it is at home, it shouldn't be viewed from a few inches. One should look at art prints from a comfortable viewing distance. Depending of the size of the artwork it could be as close as a couple of feet or as fart away as you can get from it in the room.

Always keep a fly swatter close by and spank those who start pixel peeping.......

I have prints from my old D3, technically the same as your D700 as sensors go, in my small gallery. They are printed 24"x36", my Epson is 24" wide and I like printing my own prints. Anyway, I received several "likes" from friends and visitors alike.

Best regards, AIK
