Glenn,

Welcome to Nikonians.

I guess we're trying to understand your statement as well as why uou think it's relevant.

Can you expand on it?

Welcome to Nikonians Glenn!

The D800 will produce files that are 7360 pixels wide and 4912 pixels high.

Translating that images sizes you get >>

> @ 300 ppi = 24.53" x 16.37" > Standard resolution for sending to a printer.

> @ 100 ppi = 73.6" x 49.1" (that is 6.13 feet x 4.09 feet) >
Approximate size of the image when viewed most computer monitors at 100% magnification.

I was trying to figure the pixel deminsions of the D800 senser. I see I was off a little.
