It would certainly be nice for square format (which I kinda like) sort of like a modern Rolleiflex.

...it's not a square format that I am proposing.  It's a square sensor that the entire image circle is inscribed in.  So, the camera records the whole of the image circle, which the photographer can crop (or not) to whatever aspect ratio they choose without any penalty.
