Viewing 4:3 on 16:9
Jan 11, 2012

For the past week I've been going back and forth between the e-pl2 and e-pl3. I almost pulled the trigger on the e-pl2 since it had a proper screen with 4:3 format for stills. However, today I learned of the red spot issue which is a dealbreaker for me since a lot of my shots include lights and strong lighting within the frame.

I've been thinking about it for a while and I don't think I can get past the mismatching aspect ratio of having a 16:9 screen display a 4:3 image with black bars on the side, effectively making a 3' screen into a 2.4' screen.

Any input from users would be useful. Is it something that you get used to after a while?
