I know what you’re talking


I know what you’re talking about because I used to have a GL2. I never liked the way the LCD displayed 16:9 – squeezing it like you mentioned.

In my opinion, if you want to shoot 16:9, then set your camera to 16:9. It won’t take long for you to get used to the squished image in the LCD.

I noticed on the HDTV at my school that when it stretches a 4:3 image to 16:9, it leaves the center of the image un-stretched, but then it stretches both ends. Looks fine in a static image, but when you pan it really makes for a dizzying image. Horrible in my opinion.

So, just set your camera to 16:9 if it’s going to be viewed on a widescreen TV.
