Re: gh2 file sizes

Details on the multi-aspect sensor and image sizes, about half way down the page:

http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/PanasonicDMCGH2/

4608 x 3456 (4:3) - 15,925,248 pixels
4752 x 3168 (3:2) - 15,054,336 pixels
4976 x 2800 (16:9) - 13,932,800 pixels
3456 x 3456 (1:1) - 11,943,936 pixels

Unlike every other m43 sensor, when you choose 3:2 or 16:9 the camera isn't simply cropping from the 4:3 sensor, and throwing away a bunch of data. At 3:2 you give up almost nothing. Only at 1:1 are you really losing much.
