No 16:9 photos?

[ New ]

Hello,

 

was today with the H9 on the road to take photos but then what I had to find out, the H9 can not 16:9 photo format?

 

Have I overlooked something or is that meant seriously by GoPro?

16:9 format is a rectangular format.

Your GoPro has a square shaped sensor.

 

If GoPro offered a 16:9 format, it would mean cropping the sensor and dropping resolution.

 

Instead GoPro takes "Square" pictures in order to use the entire sensor and maintain the highest resolution possible.

 

You can always add your own crop afterwards if you want for your own artistic taste.

It would be nice to let the customer decide, because with Vidoe I can also choose the format.

 

I don't feel like editing all the vacation pictures afterwards.

Honestly, just shoot the photos and save them, you'll be happy you did. You can always zoom in!!!
