I do not usually print my images, but I recently decided to print a couple of my landscapes in 8x10 format to hang on my wall in frames. I found that when I wanted to crop to 8x10, I lost a significant part of my image as the dimensions are different to the "as shot" dimensions. I am shooting with a Nikon D7000. Does anyone know if the dimensions are wrong for 8x10 format because I am shooting with a crop sensor, or would I have the same issue with a full-frame FX camera?

It has been many years, but I used to make 8x10 prints to hang on the wall out from my old non-digital Nikon 35mm camera, and I don't recall losing any of the image. I could be wrong, because I never did my own developing and may not have noticed any cropping because I would have had to look at the negatives to see the difference.
