OK, just gave square format a try. All it does, of course, is crop the 4:3 image in-camera. But I suppose you can compose with the square format in the viewfinder.
Or on the rear screen
At least there`s not as much cropping as taking it from a 3.2.
I did the photo using the rear screen. Yes, I guess you don't lose as much resolution as you would cropping to square from 3:2.
So do my TLRs, CB - although a little crop at the bottom of the frame might help in this instance.
Or this, CB, since you like circular pics of yore?
No Jas, that's just a PS effect - oddly enough I took a real circular photo of exactly the same subject!
Quote: But it raises another question in my mind - why do digital cameras not have square format sensors?
Some of the Panasonics do. The thing is about square is that it maximises the use of the image circle and any other format can be cropped from that without wasting any pixels.
Unfortunateley many people are fixated with the 3:2 36mm or full frame ratio.
Odd really, considering it was alighted upon purely as a matter of technical necessity. $:3 is considered the most pleasing to the human eye in general but so many photographer's are hide bound by the past.
You must have used the same tripod marks, CB
Is it me or has there been more than one thread on the subject of owning a 36mp camera and then come up with reasons to dump half of the pixels you paid for?

Every upload here dumps quite a few, Keith!
