If someone does not have Photoshop you can simply download or which are free. If someone does not how to do it, you have two options. They should not do it or learn how to do it. Let us asume there are a ton of images to crop. In this case efficient is not the same as right. Why? Because sometimes ...


The sensors could be made to a square format (though the current diameter would not accommodate 36x36mm, it would need to be about 30mm) if there was a demand for it. But by that logic the question we may actually need to be answering is why aren't sensors circular given that lenses present a circular image? There were some attempts at circular sensors in ...


That's not correct. Look at this picture: The green rectangle is a 36x24 sensor. The green circle, which has a diameter of 43.3mm, is the minimal light spot needed for that size. The blue square is 36x36 sensor. The blue circle, which has a diameter of 50.9mm, is the minimal light spot needed for that size. As you can see a lens suitable for 36x24 does ...


Square is not necessarily larger. 24 megapixels will hold: 3:2 6000x4000 pixels 4:3 5657x4243 pixels 1:1 4899x4899 pixels And "pictures" have mostly always been rectangular, from most film, and paintings too (like Rembrandt). We did have square medium film, but the print paper was rectangular . It seems a matter of strong preference.


Is it possible and why it has not been done yet ? Not necessarily. A 24x36mm sensor will easily fit in an image circle that's too small for a 36x36mm sensor. Specifically, a 24x36mm sensor requires a minimum diameter of about 44mm to cover the sensor. A 36x36mm sensor would require an image circle of about 51mm diameter. A square sensor is certainly ...


There simply isn't enough research and conclusions to draw any relevant results for "end users" in this case Photographers. Some research on the subject though as requested: Effects of Aspect-ratio and Size of Photographs upon the Depth Impression and the Depth Perception on their Scenes Effects of aspect-ratios and sizes of both photographic images and ...
