Changing image size
When recording in 480i/576i mode, you can change the size (aspect ratio) of the recorded image. Select the main menu → [SYSTEM MODE] → [ASPECT CONV].
[SIDE CROP]: Record using standard 4:3 mode. Cut both the left and right edges.
[LETTER BOX]: Record 16:9 the angle of view. A black band is recorded at the top and bottom of the screen. When set to [LETTER BOX], black bands at the top and bottom are not displayed because the screen size of the viewfinder and LCD monitor is 16:9. [LT.BOX] is displayed on the screen.
[SQUEEZE]: Camera images are compressed in the horizontal direction when recording. Replaying recorded images on a TV monitor that supports a wide screen will convert the images to an aspect ratio of 16:9.
