It is not the same as 3/2. It is not the same as a APSC or FF , or really, ANY other camera.

Most formats other than the 135mm format is 4:3. The 135mm format was chosen because it could use cheap cine film strips and winding it horizontally instead of vertically made a frame as large as 2 cine frames. A cine frame was 4:3, and two such frames side by side becomes 3:2.

Or something.
