Fair enough. I was referring to your post in this instance as a specific example of something I see as not uncommon, but I made an unwarranted assumption about your using 8x10. My apologies.
I'll stand by the general drift of my post though, which is that my overall impression is that people new to a format (or indeed to film) seem often to be told what they "should" be doing.
But that discussion is probably for an ethics or lounge thread, and I don't want to trigger a wildly off-topic shift for this thread
