Many still cameras today have a setting for aspect ratio, and you might wonder what’s that for. Well it’s very simple, if what you’re planning to do is end up with a photograph on a piece of paper, on a piece of like a standard photo. You probably wanna set that to three – two, because that’s the normal aspect ratio that you are expecting. That’s what that standard photo that you hold up in the, and hand out to people. On the other hand, if you want to display the photo on your widescreen TV on your plasma or LCD TV, those typically are 16 by 9. So you probably wanna set your camera to 16 by 9. What that would do is when you show the pictures on your screen, it will fill the screen completely. We won't have the black bars. The problem is 3:2 is narrower, it’s than the 16 by 9, so if you try to put a 3:2 picture on 16 by 9 TV, you’ll see black bars in the side. Nothing wrong with it, some people just don’t like it. So, setting the 16 by 9, 3:2, what you’re choosing for is whether you wanna show it on a wide screen TV and make that TV in your house a giant picture frame. Or whether you wanna have it on a piece of paper which case the 3:2 is probably the best setting. Then, neither one is wrong but it’s just whatever you like, preference wise. Hope this was helpful.
