what frame do you shoot your pics?

my dig gives you the option of 16:9 vs 4:3?


what are you peeps using and why?


I like the wide shots because I have a wide monitor that I have the ability to view it. Sometimes i do the 4:3 if its family portraits etc..

Mostly I shoot a DSLR so there's no choice but on cameras with a choice I shoot with whatever yields the most pixels. If 4:3 gives you a 4000x3000 image and 3:2 gives a 4000x2665 then I shoot 4:3 and crop later if I like.

Think of Vertical and Horizontal as different resolution planes. Typically, if you have a camera that switches, one is merely a subset of the other, and either horizontal will be the same with reduced vertical, or Vertical will be the same with reduced horizontal. All cameras have a fixed imager resolution, and they are just re-sampling to give you what you actually record.

I shoot what makes the most sense for the end result of the shoot. If you are doing portraits, then maybe 4:3 (1.33:1) is better than 16:9 (1.78:1) If you are shooting landscapes, or large groups, maybe the wider aspect is better.

Display output makes a difference in my choices, too. If it's going to SD video, why shoot it in widescreen? If its going to be a widescreen display, why shoot in narrow?
