This is the first in a long line of questions Ive got but, I'll start here. Im looking to get started in photography and dont know how far I want to take it. This is killing me as far as choosing my camera. I checked out the offereings from Canon and Nikon and find, in general, I like the feel of the Canons better. All else basically equal, I think I'll probably be a new recruit for the Canon army. BTW, it was the 40D. Nice camera. Anyway, what I was wondering, I would like to possibly turn some of my photos in the future to large prints. Something that could be framed, basic poster size maybe. As far as pixels go, is there a minimum number that would be required to get good clear blown up photos? This photography thing is certainly complicated for the newbie. THis forum appears to be a great place to learn. THank goodness for forums like this.
