    Hi Gang: Just a quick follow-up on yesterday's post about the lack of framing and mat sizes for digital photographers. (1) First, I learned something new about the origin of framing sizes from one of my readers: Paul Brooks, who wrote: I agree Scott. But, you actually have missed a very important point. 4×5 and 8×10 are aspect ratios of View Cameras, which were translated somewhat with medium format 120 and 220 film sizes, but 35mm frames were approximately 1?x 1 1/2?, the same aspect ratio (1/1.5) that digital cameras have. So, that means that the framing industry was outdated when 35mm was popular. I hated to have to crop or do funny matting to print and frame full frame 35mm when I shot film. It doesn’t look like they will ever learn! Thanks Paul. Of course, learning this makes the situation even worse…

    I don't usually like to start off Monday with a rant, but...it's 2010. 10 years into the 21st century. So, why is the framing industry still only making frames and mats in sizes for traditional 35mm film prints? Seriously. Most of the big camera companies stopped making film cameras years ago. Kodak itself has killed off most of their own print film as well because it's a digital photography world---yet when you go to buy a frame for your photos you are instantly teleported back to the 1990s when it comes to frame and mat sizing. Who are they making these frame sizes for? Now, I know there has to be some semi-legitimate reason for this, and I would love it if somebody from the framing industry would share that with all of us, 'cause cropping our images to fit these outdated sizes keeps…
