4x6 Prints with 4x5.33 photos

by lciobanu - 11/3/09 10:39 AM

Hello, I have a Canon SD990 IS camera and would like to get prints 4x6. However, photos are 4x5.33 with my camera and I always have to loose a little bit from the top and from the bottom of the photos. I do not understand why photo centers do not offer the possibility to print 4x5.33 on 4x6 paper leaving white the area from 5.33 to 6, so we could cut this white and get in a simple and cheap way 4x5.33 prints. Why do they have to increase image up to 4.5x6 so they cut 0.5 inch from top and bottom to get 4x6 ?
My camera offer the possibility of panoramic format which is 4416x2480 which corresponds to a ratio of 1.78/1 compared to 1.5/1 of that of 6x4 prints. This means a ratio of 7.12x4 compared to 6x4. If I'll go with such photos for prints at any photo center, they'll maintain my 4 inch width and cut symmetrically the half of 1.12 inches at right and left ? Or they'll reduce my image to fit the 6 inches length and leave white at the top and at the bottom ?

Finally, could you recommend me some compact flash digital cameras that offer the possibility to shot photos in 4x6 format ?
