I took a sharpie and marked my new EOS 1n screen so that I will know where an 8x10 crop will fall. From over 10 years of shooting mostly chrome and believing in the old saying crop as ye shall reap I have gotten in the habit of shooting TIGHT. by doing this I am able to know where a photo I shoot will crop to 8x10 if that is the final purpose and since most of our magazines are roughly this size it helps there also. Was very easy to do. Took a proportion wheel and "sized" the screen just like I would do for a slide for reproduction then marked up the screen. May no be exactly right but is close enough. And the EOS screens are cheap so I can replace it later, or just clean it with alcohol. Thanks to who ever posted this idea several months ago. Carl S. was it you?
