    As a photographer with a dSLR I am accustomed to the 3:2 format, but of course the Phantom doesn't shoot this. Do you shoot in 4:3 or 16:9 for your still photos?

    4:3 for stills; that way, I can utilise the full 12MP of the sensor, and I can always crop to 16:9 if desired or if in a video.

    It doesn't make much sense to shoot 16:9 because in this format the camera just chops off the top and bottom of the 4:3 photo.
    Most photographers would rather have a bigger image and choose what cropping they want rather than have it done for them.
