    The Pentax 645 frame is 56 x 41.5mm. So if you magnify the short axis by 4.896x to fill 8", the long dimension exceeds the paper by 0.79".

    The Bronica ETR(S/Si) has better frame dimension at 55x42mm, and the Mamiya 645 even better frame dimension at 55x43mm, for filling 8x10 with minimal image loss

I know 645 is not a perfect fit for either, but I'd like to know what people are printing to. Technically what size of print would show the total image without some cropping?
    A 6 inch by 4.5 inch print would show the total image without cropping. You might need to trim the paper to get an even margin.
