The advantages of such a sensor, however, are substantial: you would not need to rotate the camera from landscape to portrait orientation (especially convenient if using on-camera bounced flash) and you could crop to any aspect ratio you like with no IQ penalty.

So, what are the downsides that negate the upsides?

None, I loved shooting the square 6X6 format on 120 film. Not sure how well the "consumer" public would take to it tho? It might be too different for some people to accept.
