Legria video recording 4:3 yet output 16:9

Can someone explain why, when I record video with a Canon Legria HF S21 on the XP+ setting (1440x1080) the output file is in a 16:9 format. Really confused!

Thanks,
Pete

Hello Pete,
1440x1080 is 16:9 (as well all the most common HD formats). If you are thinking that 1920x1080 is 16:9 and 1440x1080 is 4:3, you're wrong because image aspect ratio is the same due to a different pixel aspect ratio (at 1440x1080 pixels are wider).
Best Regards,

Paolo

Hi Paolo,

Thanks for this - I had a feeling I'd missed something.

Cheers,
Pete
