2:3 Aspect Ratio Media

An Inkjet NEWS & TIPS article by Royce Bair for 2006 Dec 28


Most professional single lens reflex digital cameras maintain the original 35mm aspect ratio (2:3) from the original 24mm x 36mm film format. Many photographer probably like this format (2:3 or 1:1.5) because it is closer to the proportions of the Golden Rectangle (using Phi or the Golden Ratio of (1:1.618...) than any other format.

13x19 is a format used by many photographers because they can print a 12x18 image (without cropping, when using the 35mm format) on this paper and include a 1/2 inch border all the way around the image.

17x25 is a format that some photographers would like to see become available for the 3800 and 4800 printers because it would allow them to make a 16x24 print and include a 1/2 inch border all the way around the image.
