    I am about to head out of town in a matter of hours with no internet access and computer for a week. I have a couple of quick questions about the D70.

    If I shoot in Jpeg fine (large), how large can I print this picture without losing quality. I know I can print an 8X10 without any problems. But I am hoping I can print a 13X19 with good clarity. Is this possible? Can I go larger?

    I would shoot in raw, but I only have a 1 gig card, and I want to take a bunch of photos.

    You can maximize sharpness by using a tripod and remote shutter release (or self timer). A nice sharp lens will help as well. This will help in getting good looking enlargements.

    I've gone as high as 11*14 and the lab I print through says I can get to 12*18 easily (still have yet to test it).

    I've printed 20x30s from a 6.3mp DSLR.
