Thanks for pointing that out Oddjobber. As a Nikon shooter one of my pet peeves is my 6x4 dslr sensor. Since I frequently print at 10x8, and display at 16x9. I always felt 6x4 is a bad starting point for cropping in pp, and I am wasting megapixels. Can you suggest a dslr that has a different and hopefully a better sensor aspect ratio?
And yes it is in camera crop therefore losing mps. I should say prior to cropping in pp.
Sorry, Dylee, but you're wrong on a couple of points. 6x4, or 3x2 aspect ratio is the most common but not the only dslr ratio. There are many 4x3 ratios, mostly point and shoot, and 1x1's. When you shoot 3x2 sensor at a different format, will not be "uncropped" but is cropped in-camera instead of post processing. Yes, the pixel count will be reduced.
