Capture One - Adobe Camera RAW & Bridge conversion

A friend is using Capture One for his image processing. He's using a Canon 5D Mk3. I am retouching batches of images for him. I'm using Adobe Camera RAW and Bridge/Photoshop to pre-process them.

When he uploads the RAW files to Dropbox for me to download and I open them in Adobe Camera RAW for general pre-processing... all of the images are already cropped to an 8x10 ratio. All of the RAW files show for him in COne as the original, full frame.

I am telling him the RAW files are showing up at 8x10 when opened (already cropped) and not the full frame, out of the camera, 2x3. He's saying it must be something on my side with Adobe Camera RAW.

Is there a settings panel or export panel, anywhere in COne that I can ask him to check and see if it's on his end? I am not that familiar with COne but I do know Adobe Camera RAW and Adobe Bridge well enough that it isn't automatically cropping RAW files upon import.
Pulling out the remaining hair on my head!

Hi David,

The 5D Mark III camera has an option (in the camera) to specify a crop aspect ratio, such as 4x5 (8x10). This information is written to the metadata of the raw file. Camera Raw automatically crops 5D III images according to this metadata. (Other raw conversion software may or may not do this.) This is why you're seeing the behavior that you describe.

Perfect! Thank you Eric! Had my friend check his camera settings, sure enough that was the issue. Have a great day, that solved the issue.
