Does anybody shoot 16:9?
May 22, 2013

I bought a blu ray player/streamer -- my first -- last Christmas.  I was shocked how good it makes photos look on an HDTV. The IQ is far and away better than the old non-bluray equipment.

So now I'm thinking of shooting in 16:9 format to take full advantage of the TV display.  Does anybody else use this format?  Is it more like an in-camera crop, or do you actually have to take a new approach to picture composition?

Also, is HDTV display an area where higher camera megapixels make a difference in photo quality?
