Square pics with XE-1
Mar 20, 2013

I'm an X100 owner, sorely tempted by the X100s, but thinking of acquiring an XE-1 with the zoom as a complement to the X100. One feature of the XE-1 that I covet is the ability to make square pictures, as I did for so many years with my Rollei and Mamiya 6. My Panasonic LX5 has a square picture option, and I used it a lot!

I don't know when, short of buying one, I'll get my hands on an XE-1 so I'm asking for the impressions of anyone who uses theirs with the square format. Are there any quirks to using this camera for square pictures? My understanding is that, when set for the square format, the viewfinder and LCD show just the square with the rest of the screen blacked out, is that right?

Thanks,

Gary
