    "Monitor it properly" is subjective in my book!

    I guess I have just gotten spoiled by trying to have a nice monitoring solution available when I shoot.
    Very seldom do I use the little built-in camera monitor for the work I do.

    But then again I guess it's the norm in 2019 to run around shooting hand-held anamorphic with a 5 pound lens attached to a tiny camera body while using the built-in monitor?

    I do have a monitor that has a de-squeeze

    So, if a camera does not offer to record in 4:3 like the GH5 as you guys are saying and only 16:9, what can I do?

    Use a 4:3 camera if you want to use those Orion 2X anamorphic lenses.

    A used ARRI Alexa 4:3 camera can be purchased for about $2K more than one of those lenses you are looking at.

    You can always blow the footage up so you lose the extra resolution on the sides. set up a custom frame guide in your monitor to frame for this. Here's something I shot a long while ago on the GH2 with 2x anamorphic lenses: The Hobo Menace.

    Lost a whole lot of resolution to get the proper ratio, but that's less of an issue now with 4k native cameras.

    You can go with 1.33x anamorphics for 16:9 to 2.35, no as big of a change, but till retains some effect.
