    There. I said it almost all on the Subject.

    90fps @2.5K would be a great sweet spot in terms of resolution and HFR, and the sensor cut almost fits perfectly the S16 16:9 size and then we could use our old S16 lenses.

    It's a big win and shouldn't be that difficult to implement.

    Wish they could do it. Do you think they can ? Do you think they will ?

    I guess it's perfectly possible but I don't know if there's like some hidden obstacles.

    The thing is the 1080 mode right now is a bit too soft and I dare say almost unusable for film production. That extra 600 pixels wide would mean the world in order to get a good 1080 final image.

    No it only needs a 4:3 anamorphic mode.

    While I agree that it would be cool too have, I always find it fascinating how people without any inner knowledge of the device come the conclusion that a feature 'shouldn't be that difficult to implement'.
    My impression of BMD over the years is, that if something would have been easy to implement, they would have already done it. They are not restricting their cameras on purpose.

    I´d like to see some of the 2,40:1 Cinemascope Aspect Ratios of the UMP4.6 as Resolution-Options, just as an alternative to the regular Cinema 4K.
    But yeah, the anamorphic mode is probably something a lot of users surely would appreciate.

    Amen to the 4:3 Anamorphic mode. I just got a set-up and would love this option.

    Problem with anamorphic mode is that the 4:3 sensor area would be too narrow, just 11mm wide. You'd need really wide lenses to use it well.

    If I didn't mess up any numbers, yes, you could use all your S 16 lenses. The sensor portion would be almost 12mm wide.

    It would be a GREAT mode.
