Either crop the frame or use an anamorphic adapter on the lens and stretch the frame in post.

I would crop.

Make measured tape lines on your monitor and then crop the footage to match those lines in post. Final cut does it very easily with a widescreen matte.

there is an option in the operations-->display menu where you can set the specific aspect ratio u want. I think the option is called "Marker". You can use it to create any aspect ratio you want and it will show up as a sort of electronic "groundglass" in the viewfinder and any monitor output. The most exact way to use this is to frame a framing chart and set the "marker" to that to get an exact 1.85:1 frame. Record the framing chart and then crop it in post. Hope this helps.

Does that camera give you 1.85? I thought you could only get 1.78.

Yea, the camera is native 1.78:1. But it has the option of giving you custom framelines in the viewfinder and the monitor output that you can set to whatever you want. I was giddy like a child when I realized this, lol.
