    Printing question

    I just began using a Canon Powershot SD500 ELPH. For years I have used a Nikon F-3 SLR. While I am really impressed with what this little camera can do, I am having a problem when the photos I have taken are printed. I seem to be losing some of the photograph on all four sides. What I see on the computer screen is more than what is on the print - either from a lab or from my own printer. I am used to shooting full frame with the Nikon. Is there a way to ensure when I edit photos that I get the full image? Thanks for your help.

    Your camera takes photos in a 4:3 (3072/2304 = 4/3) aspect ratio. For printing, to fill up the print edge to edge with your photo, there will have to be some cropping. You can minimize this effect you do the cropping instead of letting the printer/print lab do the cropping. Just make the aspect ratio of the photo to be printed the same aspect ratio of the print media.

    For example 4x6 photo crop to 3072x2048 pixels, 5x7 to 3072x2194 pixels, 8x10 to 2880x2304 pixels. These photos should then print full frame on the indicated print sizes.

    A good post which illustrates what will be cropped for different print sizes is listed here: http://www.dcresource.com/forums/sho...6&postcount=19

    Concert Pictures

    Hi. I am new to the forum and definitely a novice. I see that there was a post on this thread in 2005 about using DSLRs for concert pictures. There are many new cameras on the market now. I started out using a Panasonic Lumix LZ2 then moved to the Pansonic Lumix TZ1. I am now looking at the FZ18 because I am ready to try my hand at some manual controls. I've captured some excellent shots (in MY opinion) but it's not very consistent. I "trash" MANY of them due to the inconsistency.

    Does anyone have an opinion on what the best camera or technique is for taking concert pictures?
