i have a 20d and i have noticed that no matter how careful i am to frame the picture as i want it, when i look back at photo ive just taken, i find that it is not quite framed exactly how it looked through the view finder. It's usually a bit wider, things that were out of shot are now in the frame, if you know what i mean.

Is my camera defective or is this a normal thing for DSLR? I have never noticed it with my film slr, but then i can never remember for sure how i framed a picture by time i got the photos back from the developers

Anyone else have this problem?

Can others edit my Photos
Photos NOT OK to edit
All but the top end SLR cameras have less than 100% view finder coverage. I think most of them are around 95% or something close to that.

So your camera is perfectly normal.

thanks Mike. I was starting to think i was going mad.

It can be a bit annoying composition wise
