For example Casio's EX-Z40 ZOOM has a 3:2 ratio picture setting already enabled on the camera so i dont have to worry about cropping...at least from what i've skimmed over.

Is there a similar function on the A80's? or would i just have to shoot at the Large Super Fine mode then go into photoshop and crop out a correct 3:2 ratio to print correct 4x6 pictures?

thx in advance for the replies.

That feature is not present. The A75 has a similar feature, that actually only shows what the finished crop will look like by shading the cut-off regions. However, it takes the full image, and the 4x6 mode is only 1.3MP

It says 1600 x 1200 for Postcard, which is about 1.92MP, according to my calculator.Some Sonys have the 3:2 setting, also. The 3:2 setting is 2592 x1728 on the W1, and that's about 4.4MP.

I have an A80 and an A20 before that, and rarely think about the 3:2 ratio. I print tons of 4x6's, usually right from the CF card on my printer, and hardly ever have a crop effect that bothers (usually a slight cut-off on the top). My son has a Sony with a 3:2 ratio option and never uses it. We both would rather take full size and then go to an editing program and choose our crop using a 4x6 template, available with many editors. So, I think it's not a big deal, and wouldn't let that be a determining factor with my purchase consideration.

Is this maybe the "real" answer to the question:

Works for me, BTW.

JPEGCrops looks pretty nice. If you have a Canon printer and one of the more recent versions of their Easy-PhotoPrint utility, I think that it does the same thing.
