    that sounds like an absolute must-have for today's crazy world of multi-format delivery. such as editing 16x9, 4x5, and 9x16 all from the same shoot. (although you likely won't be grabbing your 9x16 frame from the center of your 16x9 frame all the time, so perhaps a grid of 9x16 boxes would be more useful)

      Unless I'm remembering wrong, I believe I was on a shoot with the Sony Venice that could do the same.

Our broadcast cameras(like my VariCam) and some cine cameras(like my F55) have the option to basically create a box of virtually any size and aspect ratio you want to overlay in the VF(and monitor out) in addition to the predefined markers available to you. So you could create your own custom frame markers. I used that option when we had to still shoot 16x9 and 4x3 simultaneously.
        Yes whats I did , put up a chart with the small HD monitors built in 2:1 marker , and matched up the marker lines with the user box..and stored the height number if I have to do it again ..I mean its still recording 16-9 so there is room for wiggle in post ..maybe it will be in the list with V3 or the custom aspect ratio feature will be included .. just thought 2:1 might have already been included , there is a whole bunch of preset marker lines but not 2:1

          Hmmm,

          for fun, let's add the fact that pixels themselves also can have different aspect ratio...

            That aspect is hard to resolve ..

              Oh God don't go there. This thread is painful enough as it is.

                  I am not an expert on the Venice but I think you have to use a function called "User Frame", which is similar to "User Box" on the other cameras. Having separate controls just for a custom aspect ratio marker on the FX6 is a new function . . . I think.

                    As mentioned earlier, introducing the idea of differing pixel aspect ratios results in meaning that there is yet another mathematical factor in determining the actual aspect ratio of the frame.

                    Last week I was working on a shoot with a couple of FX9's -- The production specified that they wanted the cameras set to 4096x2160. Interestingly enough the term "17x9" was never mentioned, though both "DCI 4k" and "C4k" terms did come up.

                    We needed to get a special dispensation to use an A7s III as a third camera because it doesn't record in that size. Where we really saw the difference was on the quad split monitors - where it was hard not to notice the difference in relative frame heights when the frames are right next to each other.
