Please correct me if I'm wrong... I think only 4R, S8R and S10R give 3 x 2 ratio, while the rest will give 4 x 3 ratio... U might like to consider this cos' cropping will be done on those with 4 x 3 sizes... (unless your photos are already in 4 x 3 ratios)...

Just my 2 cents worth... :)

suggest 4R if u got tons of shots to print out..then accompany with 5R or 6R for those "more" significant shots. :think:
