Has anyone had a problem with the pictures having to be cropped from 4.5 x 6 down to 4 x 6 before they can be printed? The Sony I had previously had a seting to change this. Am I missing something on this one? Thanks.

do the maths.

the FZ10 produces 4:3 ratioimages as do most digicams, not 3:2.

The 2307x1728 image from the FZ10 must be cropped by 192 pixelsto 1536 in order tofit in a 6:4 print.

The cameras that give a 3:2 option just crop off pixels from the top and bottom. Better to do it yourself IMO. This is free and will do it for you easily:

If you ever get a shot you want a bigger blowup of you usually don't want the image in 3:2.

I have heard that Wal-Mart will give you 4.5 X 6 prints.

We have several online print services in Holland that print digital formats, I guess in other countries that will also be possible.
