Viewing output in 16:9 mode

Sorry if this has been covered before, but I couldn't find it easily doing a search.

In 16:9 mode, apparently the viewfinder offers a letterboxed image. What will be output via the BNC and S-video connectors? A squeezed image or letterboxed? Is this selectable?

Thanks!

Squeezed, spaghetti western. Not selectable. D'oh!

8045's do, and the later model 8044's do, but I believe the first models of the 8044 didn't.

What are 8045's and 8044's? Monitors I assume?

As you can see from my article Five Essential Items for the XL2, I'm fairly impressed with the Sony PVM-9L3, if you don't mind shelling out $900+ for it.
