The images are superb but there is one question that one has to ask right away . You do not use the native 4.3 ratio for your work ?

If si , I am curious as to why


Hi, I worked with classic format 3:2 for about 15 years. After my switch to Olympus gear I still see compositions in 3:2. I also set my camera to show just 3:2 format (even 4:3 is recorded to RAW) and the image fill whole LCD which is also in 3:2 format, no numbers and other informations on display are splitted. So, no special reason, I see the world in 3:2 or (many times) in 1:1 😉✌

Hello Petr

first, thank you for taking the time to answer my question

I completely understand because I have had the same experience .. but opposite because I grew in my photography with medium format film cameras so since early on learned to compose in the 4:3 or 5 :4 ratio 

I also shoot a lot of images vertically and never like the 3.2 ratio for vertical shots

this is why I choose the MFT system and not mostly for the small size like lots of MFT users

Keep up the great work
