Silly question about aspect ratio - do you shoot 4:3 or 3:2?
7 months ago

I have no idea why my gh3 was set on 3:2 (I normally shoot with the 7-14mm lens); but I was adjusting the settings and noticed that 4:3 files were 16mb and 3:2 were 14mb.

Is there any loss to shooting 4:3 over 3:2; it seems like a no brainer to shoot 4:3 and then crop..but I recall reading that shooting 3:2 actually gives you a "longer" horizontal image vs a 4:3...so you actually do miss some of the subject when shooting in 4:3...true?
