Would I be able to get an A3 print from my D80 shooting in RAW?
Secondly; I'm looking for a reasonably priced supplier to make up some A3 canvas or box prints; can you recommend any?

in a word yes,
A3 Yes, although you will need to resize the image to allow for A3.
Many online stores available.
Yup, I regularly print to A3 from my D80 - I use 240ppi and the resolution is fine (maybe not competition quality but very acceptable)

ok, so what would the min size be?

you havin a laugh what minimum size, !!! 1 mm x 3mm i expect
you can produce first class images from raws shot on your or any 10mg pix camera. assuming its exposed correctly, raw processed and saved as 16 bit tif and sharpened properly you should get excellent quality prints, this is obviously dependant upon your printer, inks, paper,profiles etc.
you need to size the image in photoshop for home printing size to 240 dpi A3 or 16 x 11 or similar, i use 15.125" x 10.125" as this sits well in a 20" x 16" mountboard. 240dpi is about optimum for most printers .
for having prints made out i havnt a clue.

I was referring to alternative in-camera settings jpeg fine etc
Thanks for the other tips, I'll give it a whirl, much appreciated
I have made and sold loads of A3 prints from my old D70 (6mpix) so you should have no problem making good A3 prints with your D80.
For A3 canvas prints I have used Photoartistry.co.uk (they supply the prize print for photo of the week - see epz home page). I dont know how they compare on price to other suppliers but the service and print quality is very good.
large j peg will also do A3 no problem. below that no chance really.
sorry i thought you was taking the p**
Thanks for all the help guys, great stuff
I have the D80 and printed to A1 canvas Very good. I used a mate to print it.
Think a on line store called photobox is very good as i spoke to someone who does his fare share off weddings and he said he uses them from time to tme.
Hope this helps you, Paul..
