30*24 for me!
In reply to Lance B, Oct 25, 2007

Hi,

I think that 30*24 sensor size would be perfect, or why not a 30*30 sized sensor with a body selector for horizontal or vertical image with viewfinder blackouts. The different readout sizes could be, square 30*30, Horizontal 30*24 and Vertical 24*30. Feels ancient to have to change the grip of the camera just to be able to shoot vertical. A 90* rotatable 30*24 sensor could also do.
Would also like to see a 1.5 crop factor on all above modes with at least 8 MP.

My main reason for preferring 30*24 over 30*20 is that it captures more of the available lightcircle.
