...and if so, will we see frames for this size and Walgreens printing this format?

What say you?

My Canon S5is point and shoot tele zoom allows this format. What size is 35mm?

35mm film and all of the digital SLRs are a 2:3 ratio and yet Walgreens sells 8x10 frames instead of 8x12.

When I shoot portraits, I usually make use of the whole frame and I'm not really concentrating on trying to compose/frame the shot for 1.25:1 ratio format.

My personal binder/portfolio of prints is 8x12".

But when I get stuff printed for the models I photograph, I give them 8x10". No one has asked me for 8x12, or any other 1.5:1 ratio format. Pretty much every model I've spoken that has a book/binder/album uses 8x10.

16:9 is a lousy aspect for singles.

I'm confused...

why not give them 8x12? Is it just cheaper to print 8x10?

8x10 is cheaper, but that's not the reason I give 8x10. I give 8x10 because models want 8x10.

Wide screen monitors, HD TV's and Iphones are all in a 16 x 9 type format. Kind of makes sense to shoot in that format sometimes, doesn't it?
