The aspect ratio, again

If you are a regular reader of our blog, you could notice that the avaliability of true multi-aspect ratio is a sensitive part of my heart. I have written about it many times. To better illustrate the operation of this method, I have made some new animations based on flash.

conventional method of almost every camera:
cropping the image and droping out the pixels
(move the cursor over the animation to rotate it)

Panasonic GH1: the sensor is wider than normal 4/3
and always exploits the image circle
4:3 - 3:2 - 16:9

the ultimate, square shaped (imaginary) sensor:
16:9 - 3:2 - 4:3 - 3:4 - 2:3 - 9:16
(you can see the switching between the 3:2 landscape
and the 2:3 portrait mode on the animation)
