How to 16:9 on DVC200

Hi All I own DV200 & a GY5000 both PAL. The GY5000 has a mode where the top & bottom are cropped electronically to emulate 16:9 feel so it very easy to frame the shoot and one can still get the desired filmy 16(; effect for local cale shows corpo videos but how the heck to I do when I am in multi shoot with both the GY5000 & DV200 on location.

I know there is a 16:9 marker in dv200 but its very dff to frame when u see the marker but the top & bottom arent cropped whereby one shoots all what u see thru the VFand sometime later u forget abut the frame thing on dv200VF...is there any adoptor to be placed between camer & lens to do the desired cropping ... i can do the cropping later in post i know that but when shooting on location sometime cameraman forgets that he sees images in 4:3 bt has to virtually frame them as 16:9 !!!

Awaiting your views suggestions etc.

Thanks !

Connect the DVC200 to a monitor than just mask off the topand bottom with tape and just add the black bars in post.

No, put tape on the monitor. Then you frame the shot for inside the tape. Then add black bars in post.

I am actually looking for shooting w/o monitor say when I am shooting shoulder mounted. its then that i have problems for framming 16:9 even with the marker showing me 16:9 margins as i almost cant do instant framming. every time i have to see the top & bottom marker...and this slows down the speed of working ???

Ayways ides sugestions...
