    que?

    6x7 is really 55x69mm (at least, it is on my RZ), which is 4:5 and a very good fit for 8x10 and 16x20 paper. The only problem is that people tend not to print full-bleed so once you take off some margins for the easel, you end up cropping the image a little longer in aspect ratio.

    That is a bit of a dilemma for me because I absolutely love both formats. In fact I like both of them more than the standard dimensions of 35mm or DSLRs. I find square frames to be very intriguing and my first attraction to MF photography was because of my father's large collection of black and white negatives from the fifties and sixties when he first came to Japan. Almost all of them are square.

    At the same time I find that in comparison to normal rectangular photo dimensions the chunkier 6x7 has a distinct appeal as well.

    So for the first three rolls were all 6x6. But then this afternoon I pulled the GS-1 out and shot a roll of 6x7. I imagine I will go back and forth with the GF670.
