Xpan /TX-1 45mm framelines

I just got the 45mm (started w/ the 90mm) and it seems that the actual exposed area is substantially larger than the framelines. Can anyone concur? I've only done one roll thus far and most of it was my kid, but I took a few shots on the street that I remember just barely getting in the frame, but now there's quite a bit of extra space. Or am I losing my mind?

Is the finder actually changing framelines, so that you can see a difference between the 90 and 45mm ones? And do you have it set to "P" ?

Yes, the framelines are definitely different, and it's set to P. It's not a night and day difference... just enough to where I need to frame the shot a bit tighter than I want it.

It's been probably around 8-10 years since I last really used an xpan. The way I remember it, the frame lines are a bit tighter than what u c on film. I suspect this is to help w/ any close focus parallax error...I don't remember being way off though.

Hello,
As seen in manuals, the "field is 85%".
So the film record 15% more than you have framed in VF.

That's normal for rangefinder , never seen 100% like in Nikon F.

Thanks! I don't have the manual and never bothered w/ checking online. Good to have an exact figure, even though I'll need to calibrate through practice.

As said its for parallax error...you get used to it quickly! And it comes in handy when sometimes you're pushed very tight in the viewfinder with no room to move for composition, but you'll know it will come out in the film!
