p.1 #1 · NEX 6 square format question


Is there ANY way of getting a 1:1 frame in the NEX 6 This lack is really my only criticism of this camera.

TIA, KL

I didn't think you could shoot native 1:1 with most cameras above the likes of point and shoots.

It's a pretty common feature in the m43 cameras, and was present in some of the later 4/3rds cameras as well. Sony only supports 16:9 as an alternate aspect ratio though. I'm unsure about the Fuji's

Yeah I'm aware of the mft cameras supporting it. You must not remember my feelings towards that format.....

The Fuji X100s also supports 1:1. It's beyond me why all of the camera companies don't offer 1:1, 4:5, 4:3, etc. in their LCD/EVF based cameras. I only shoot raw, but if I know that I'll be outputting at a certain ratio, it would be nice to be able to frame in that ratio.

Don't know about the 6, but the 5n lets you select a "square grid", which is 6 columns and 4 rows, so there's a 4x4 grid contained in that.

I may have not found it in the 6's terrible menus, but i don't think there is any way to shoot 1:1 with it. I too, would like this feature.

Change the grid to square to give you 1:1 framing. Crop in post.
