Plan was to develop the idea a bit further first, but it has been in the back of my mind for too long now.. Glad you like it.

I think some firms could be interested in this sort of compositional cropping. Panasonic seems to give some weight to aspect ratios as they put a dedicated control on the LX5. But other players don't really seem to care. In the preview of the new sony a57, I noticed it has only two aspect ratios: 3:2 and 16:9 - I can only hope this is some sort of a mistake.

This might also be something for a firmware hack. The hack for the pana gh2 seems to be mainly video-oriented. For Canon, magic lantern has made a firmware hack that allows you to use your own custom crop marks. Might be more up their alley.
