probably wrong place to post; how much should you mark off on each side of your focusing screen to produce 8X10 coverage without cropping - I knew the amount for 35mm focussing screens, but not digigob finders, like the D70s and D50 - anybody? anybody?
thanks

How about framing a 8x10 photo in your viewfinder and seeing the exact amount ?
How you mark the viewfinder screen is another matter though....

Dit, let me see if I understand what you are asking. Are you asking how much room should be allowed for when taking a picture so when printed to 8x10, no viable part image will be lost? If I understand you correctly, I would shoot loose enough so one-fifth of the image can be cropped, but nothing within the subject matter will be adversely effected.

Take a measurement of the vertical dimension, divide by 8, multiply by 10. Subtract this number from the horizontal dimension, divide by 2. The resultant is the measurement in from each end.
