950 16:9 vs 4:3 rendered as 16:9

If I start shooting 16:9 on my 950 what would be the difference between that footage and what I shoot on 4:3, if they are both used in the same 16:9 project?

(Edit: seems tags don't work in the subject field)

i'm not 100% sure, but i think there will not be any quality loss, 950 makes 16:9 picture by cutting down upper and lower part of 4:3 image anyway. It can depend on your edit program, how it makes picture cropping. Yeah, and time spent for rendering.

I use Vegas, which is great for cropping. But if you are right, rendering 4:3 footage as 16:9 and shooting 16:9 (on the same 950) and render as 16:9 will amount to the same: the footage is being chopped top and bottom.

Actually it will be better to shoot 4:3 because I can fine-tune the chop (adjust up or down) plus I can use the footage as 4:3 unreduced. Going the other way, shooting 16:9 and render as 4:3 will give me reduction twice, if you are right.
Can anyone confirm this, please?
