Is it possible to take 16 : 9 format pictures with D3100 or only 3:2 ?
For still pictures, the format is 3:2 only. To change the layout, you need to do some cropping or stitching in post processing.A quick glance at the movie specs indicate both 3 : 2 and 16 : 9 are available for movies.---------+---------+---------+---------+Joseph KSeattle, WA, USAD200, 17-55mm f/2.8 DX, 70-200mm f/2.8 VR, 50mm f/1.4 D18-70mm f/3.5-4.5 DX, 70-300mm f/4-5.6 ED, D70S
When I switch my D3100 to video mode the image on the LCD switched to 1 format and plays back at 1 .It will record in 1 if you use one of the HD video settings. If you choose 640x424 then it'll be ~3:2.
