Hi
I want to print (direct from SDHC card) 8x6 pictures without having to resize in DPP etc. What settings must I use?

Thanks

Images from the 1D2 are always 2:3. That means you can print without cropping 6x9 or 5.3x8, but if you send to the printer uncropped files for 6x8 paper part of the image will be outside the area of the paper and be de facto cropped. However, you will probably not be able to control where the crop falls.

Thanks tzalman for your quick response.
Seems that I'll have to resize on my computer :( or buy a different (event) printer.

I suppose that my 550d is also 3:2

Thanks

Yes, resize -- crop on your computer. A different printer won't help. A different camera will make a differernce, sure, but you still need to crop to fit your print size.

Olympus 3x4 cameras as well as almost every P & S camera have the native aspect ratio that will print directly on 6x8.
