    I just stepped up to a SLR. I started out with the fuji S7000. Nice camera, but it was time to move on after 4 1/2 years. I wanted a full frame camera, couldn't afford it so I settled on the canon 50D.

    Is there a grid or bar sticky that you might be able to put on the viewfinder or LCD to know how to frame your shot up so they don't get cropped at the developers?

    First Post I hope was a good one.;)

    Thanks for looking..

    If you're getting 4x6's, there is no cropping - it's the same aspect ratio (2:3) as film/the sensor.

    There are focusing sreens you can get that have 8x10 crop lines on them, but I don't know of any other sizes.

    You can crop to any aspect ratio in PP before sending out your files for printing.
