Letterbox(black bars) in video, aspect ratios etc.

Hi,

So I would like to get cinematic looking video with black bars, but I don't want to just cut the video and loose video space.

I have watched this video:

This guy recommends changing the resolution for proper effect.

I set a marker on my Sony A6400 to 2:35, so I can frame properly.

But if I end up doing 21:9 with this technique, is 2:35 the proper marker?

Or should I use different resolution in FCP X for 2:35 marker?

Thanks!
