    Hello friendly folk of AVForums! :)

    Im currently using a Nikon D70 as my primary toy and was wondering how and where the best place to get the photos printed in large scale. Im using a Canon Fine nozzle thingy printer for anything upto A4 (and very good it is too!) but im looking to go bigger (A3+). Also what is the next best step up from a D70? I take lots of architectural and night time photos.

    Any more info would be great

    Hi Joe and welcome to the forums! The best place to get photos in large scale is http://www.photobox.co.uk/

    Afraid I can't help with your second question as i've only got a point and click.

    I got an A2 from photobox.co.uk and the results where superb! That was from a handheld shot of a car!!

    Keep an eye out for special deals with them aswell! I got my A2 for £5.99 + postage about 4 months ago!!

    real mpix increase cost lots of £ unfortunately. In the 35mm format then D2x (12mp) and 1dsMkII (17mp) are the only route (possibly 5D when released), otherwise you're into medium format for even more £ (in digital).

    The bonus of the 5D/1Ds for architect/landscape is that they are full frame.

    regards

    do you have a lot invested in Nikon, lenses, flash etc
    why do you want to upgrade the camera, you may be better off buying lenses
