How do you convert a photo's pixel size into mm ?

I have a camera that takes pics at 2832x2128 px - how big would that be physically ?

What size printer size A3/A2/A1 should I buy ?

To get a print size divide the camera pixels by the recommended printer resolution. Printers refer to pixels per inch (ppi) so you'll have to do a quick conversion to get the size in millimetres. Most current high quality printers suggest around 240 pixels per inch so 2832/240 is 11.8in (299mm) To output this you'll need an A3 printer.
