Lots o pixels going to waiste when I crop. I usually make my pictures 8.5x11. I think I'm getting the same detail or less than my D100 when I crop. So what size do you guys crop to?
I print usuing an Epson 2200, looks great there.
What size gives the most bang for the buck?

What lenses do you use? Unless you are using good lenses then you
probably are getting a picture inferior (in resolution) to what you took
on the D100 when you crop to the same size. In addition things
like camera shake and subject motion increase by the squareroot
of the ratio of the sensor sizes (1.3 in this case.)

umm, think you read more into my question than I asked. I use the same NIKON lenses on both cameras.

?

Maybe I don't understand the question. I don't crop to a size, I crop to a composition. Then I scale the composed crop to whatever size print-out I need. I can print an image as A4 or A3 without re-cropping it. Most of the time I print with "scale image to fit media".

It sounds like you think the "size" of the image is absolute, when you talk of cropping an image to 8.5x11.

I crop in camera when I shoot the picture. I almost automatically shoot remembering that I will lose some of my top and bottom to a 8.5x11 or 11x14 print.
However many times I put a border on my shots to enable full frame printing.
Im still not sure I am answering your question properly tho...
Hope this helps

with a "border" added in but its cloned.




no border, original full frame

i do the same thing and is what started this thread. If you crop real close with the camera 8.5x11 can't be cropped in photoshop without getting a wide side boarder or a wide boarder on top and bottom.

Nice effects on your shots!
