Pixel count: 16/9 versus 4/3

What is the actual pixel count of the XL2 in 16:9 and in 4:3? Is there a noticeable drop in image quality in 4:3?

Pixel Count 4: v 16:9

Hi Bill,

Canon state 350,000 pixels for 4:3 and 460,000 pixels for 16:9 in their product tour guide.

As for picture quality, I can't answer yet. As I speak, my XL2 is winging it's way across the United States from B&H photo to Livermore CA. :-))


Regards,
Allan

There is no drop in image quality in either 4:3 or 16:9. The XL2 is full-res in either mode.

See my article at http://www.dvinfo.net/canonxl2/articles/article06.php for all the details.
