Re: full frame camera
Is it the length-to-width ratio you are have trouble with or is it composition? Your question isn't clear which is the issue, but I doubt that getting a full-frame camera at this time will solve your problem. Nikon, Canon, and Sony cameras all have the same 3:2 aspect ratio, whether "crop" imager or so-called full-frame, which has the same 24 x 36 mm active area as a frame of traditional 35 mm still camera. The view through the finder in any of these cameras will all show pretty much the same view, after adjusting for the crop factors with the lens' focal length.
On the other hand, a four-thirds or micro four-thirds camera has (of course) a squarer 4:3 aspect ratio that fits better into an 8-1/2 x 11 inch rectangle. This is also the same aspect ratio as most compact digital cameras, even though the imager size is different.
If used right, any dSLR and most compact digital cameras will make decent 8-1/2 x 11 inch enlargements. You must crop some of the excess length from the cameras with 3:2 aspect ratios if an image of this size is your final purpose and must make allowances for this cropping when framing and shooting the original image.
