    Square most of the time (read "unless I failed to compose properly/avoid some garbage").

    I sometimes (very seldom) compose panoramic and have to crop, but I try to fill the square as much as I can.

    I will be happy to see papers in square too, starting from 10 inches...

    Square. Got started in square with a Seagull rangefinder, kept with it through my Hasselblad days, and now again with my Rolleiflex (flexes?flexii? I have two).

    Any Yashica TLR with the Yashinon lens and in good condition is capable of quality images. The later Yashicas seem to have some cult status and prices, A Rollie is more durable.

    The "excess" paper makes for nice test strips.

    On the "merry go-round" project, I started printing square with a very wide low margin, and this was very appreciated by the folks who received the images.

    My beginning intention is square. Might not always be able to finish that way. But I always start that way.

    Let me clarify, I have no problem cropping and that's inherent in the format and I believe has been used in marketing this square format at one time, but I love the square and think that way when composing, but will crop later if it improves the photo or presents another aspect I had not thought of but may now like. That said maybe 3% are cropped that way.

    Interesting. When I have gone to shows I have seen few prints in square format. Gallery bias? When I first bought the C33 I made quite a few prints. Only one was in square format and that was becuase the subject itself was basically square and could not be cropped. I guess some of us just see the world as being rectangular.
