WIDESCREEN question

Hi everyone,

Just a quick question...

I want to shoot a wide composed picture for events, weddings and creative projects. A friend sent me the link to this web site:
http://www.bluecoremedia.com/widescreen.html

If the a blue core rep is on this board...great work...it really inspires me. What I am trying to do is determine what they are doing to get the widescreen that they are talking about.

I know that I can shoot in 16:9 format but that will squashed the image if it is not viewed on a widescreen TV?? So are they just talking about matteing the 4:3 compsition to get the widescreen affect?

Thanks in advance, I know this topic is beat to death but I wanted to aks.

perhaps a lens mount like this helps get the 16:9 feel??

Can some tell me if this lens is worth th emoney or if matting in photoshop gives essentially the same thing?

A number of people use the anamorphic lens. This is a better solution than using electronic 16:9.

The matting I think you are talking about would be letterboxing. A number of NLEs have setting for doing 16:9 letterbox.
