It's featured in these forums somewhere. You can utilse the title mix function of the XM2 to do an in-camera crop for letterbox. Saves all that rendering in post and it's instant!

Sorry Robin, is this to give me immeadiate 16:9 ? . . . I think it is a neat "use" of the XM2 . .. maybe I'll relook at this as an option.

Both shot 4:3 and cropped in camera.

Graham,

You're keeping the 4:3 resolution of the CCDs. It will appear to seem better than the 16:9 full-height anamorphic setting, though that has been discussed to death here and elsewhere...
Aesthetically, I prefer to frame in the wide format.

Robin.

"Aesthetically, I prefer to frame in the wide format" . . and then film in 16:9 too? . .

Oh the done to death thing, yeah . . most of it went waaaaaaayyyy over my head . . BUT, with your gently nudging, I now see what it was all about! . . Ah, so THAT was what it was all about . .!


. . .interesting how I grasp "stuff" when I want to know . otherwise I just . . . switch-off?

Grazie
