    Anyone know if my d300 is enough to print an 8 feet mesh?

    upsize it with genuine fractals. You could print an 8ft mesh from an iphone pic.


    send me the shot if you want me to upsize it for you.

    But yeah, I would (and have) printed bigger than 8ft with no hesitations from anything 10mp or larger.

    Mesh is easy to get away with printing big. Mesh is basically REDICULOUS ammounts of grain / high iso artifact. :p

    imt not sure, maybe mesh is the wrong word. I was looking at that photo up close and it only showed small amounts of pixelation

    when you say mesh, i think of the shit they put on the sides of busses. Basically its a screen and you can see out of it from inside the bus.

    You'll need to upsize it, but there's absolutely no reason you can't print this large.

    Obviously, there are reasons most of this type of work is done with 60+ megapixel hasselblads, but can you get an acceptable print that size out of your d300? Absolutely.
