I'd say no not that exact part number, there is probably one available though.

I'll have to do more digging. This screen and the ones for Mark-series were the only ones I could find. I didn't find a Canon version for the 20D.

Thanks

The other option is just to send the camera to someone who will etch them for you. I know several big time pro's who have done this.

so i think, i think the whole idea is that it's better to shoot a little looser so that 1 "final" crop can yield multiple print sizes with the photog having to do minimal or no work after the 1st crop.

Bingo. IMO, the only way to crop is not to crop until in post! Why limit your options.

With that said, I shoot loose to give editors options on cropping, but I also crop in camera on many shots as well. In stark contrast, when shooting products, I pretty much crop in camera since the final layout is already nailed down.

Great thread! Thanks to the OP for his time to start it, and believe it or not, I learned alot. I've done the separate 8x10 crop for a bride, and it can be exhausting. Good to know there are upfront choices that can be made during the shoot to help this.

so meaning take 2 shots of everything?

1 shoot loose enough for a 4x6 and the other tight enough for a 8x12?

I have been doing essentially this, too, assuming you meant 8x10. Well, yesterday I got an order for an 8x10 of my tight shot. I have to email her today and explain that I can either do an 8x12 for her or print an 8x10 of a looser crop. I have a feeling that if I email her examples, she will be okay with it. It was probably just the closer crop that she liked, but I'm not sure how to handle it if she is unhappy about it. Throw in a free 8x12 frame?? I think I'm kidding... maybe :confused:

I've got the ultimate solution for y'all with framing issues.

Wait for it....

Shoot everything with the Sigma 4.5mm.

Is it a horizontal or vertical image? If it's horizontal, just squish in those extra two inches, and it'll make the person skinnier to boot ;) If it's a vertical, well, not so much...

Unfortunately it's vertical, but thanks for the idea. i don't know if I'd squish a whole two inches, but it could work if you just needed to squish a little.

Sorry to those who don't like reviveing old threads, but I was wondering if I could get another question answered.


[QUOTE=taygull;4059494​]

Example 1 is of the image I shot and framed lose so I could crop to 4:5. This is the cropped version.

I would like to see the original shot before any cropping so I have an idea of what I need to leave around the subject. Please post the orginal side bye side with this cropped one.

I don't have it handy and may not have saved it. Just envision about a 1/2" above and below the image.

So I want to leave an 1/2 an inch on the left and right if shot in landscape and a 1/2 inch if shot in portrait? This will leave me enough space to crop for 3X5, 4X6, 5X7, and 8X10 and nothing will be cut off?

The simple thing to do is open some images in photoshop and select your crop tool to the specific ratio's and see what it does.

That is the best advice I can give as it would be hard to layout exactly how much in inches, that was just a guesstimate.
