[ryan elder] "I didn't want to shoot in 16:9 is I don't really like the look of it, and feel that it's not quite wide enough, which is why I thought 1.85:1...."

You do realize there there is virtually no noticeable difference in 16:9 and 1.85:1, right?

A 1.85:1 image on a 16x9 screen has only the thinnest thinnest little letterboxing bars... almost nonexistent. On an HD screen it's only a 21-pixel difference top and bottom.

I would almost defy anyone to look at a rectangle with no other frame of reference and easily be able to tell if it was 16:9 or 1.85:1.

Yes, 2.20:1 is a substantial difference... but 1.85:1.... nah.
