Question about Gh4 Academy Ratio (4:3)
I'm likely going to be picking up a GH4 soon. One feature I'm excited for is 4:3 for anamorphic shooting. But I also really like shooting 1:33:1 or 1:37:1, and I'm curious if it's better to shoot 4:3 mode to get the ratio I want, or shoot 16:9 and crop. I hear 4:3 doesn't use the whole sensor and increases the crop factor? Does that mean I'd be better off shooting 16:9?
There's also no chance I'd later decide to turn a 4:3 project into a 16:9 project, but shooting 16:9 does allow for some horizontal adjustment in post. Not something I'm too worried about, but it could come in handy.
