Sure I understand the ratio, but why didn't they just make it 1:1? I mean the converging lens would create the same image projection on the sensor, so why make it 4:3 and lose out? Or am I missing something technical in between?

Possible - in the days of film, the most popular professional camera used for creating images in the advertising indusrty was the Hasselblad which used tthe 6x6cm format. The thinking was that you shot square and then cropped to either portrait or landscape afterwards. The film size was much bigger than the 36x24mm of regular 35mm cameras, so the was no loss of quality when you cropped.
