I got my 350D lately, but when I shoot some grids, for example, the image I got
tend to be broader than what I see in the viewfinder, 2% maybe, since I have
grids that can show the boundaries on four sides.

Is this normal with 350D? :?

Thank you.

This is normal for most all dSLRs. The viewfinder coverage of the 350D is 95%. Most fall between 94 and 97%.

I don't own a Canon DSLR. But,if you're like me, less frame coverage can be a good thing.

I'm often guilty of framing "too tightly", finding out the hard way later when I need to crop an imageto the correct aspect ratio for a given print size. ;-)

You might find this interesting:
http://www.steves-digicams.com/smp/03162003.html

It talks directly about the design of view finders and all the issues involved in making a good one (And how the issues work against each other.) I found it very "enlightning" (and if you read that article, you'll see why that is a play-on-words.)
