What is the pixel aspect ratio for the HMC150 while in 1080p? (Does your pixel aspect ratio change if your in a different picture aspect ratio?)

I've searched around, but I'm still not sure if I understand how to find this information...

Thanks for any tips.

In PH, HA, and HG mode, the Pixel Aspect Ratio in 1.0.
And in HE mode, i.e. 1440x1080, its 1.333.

1920x1080 doesn't requires any Pixel Aspect Ratio stretch to make 16x9 picture aspect ratio. It's perfect Square.
The picture aspect ratio of 1440x1080 is technically 4x3, but it's Pixel's are stretched by 1.333 to make it 16x9.

Thanks! That helps. It seems hard to find that metadata in most programs...

Best.
