1. Does anybody know where I can get an aspect ratio lens or filter which can be screwed on the lens of the camera which shows me the aspect ratio of widescreen 1.75 or even 2.35. This is so I don?t have to put tape over my monitor to correctly compose my shots.

2. Does anyone know a Prosumer camera that has the 1.75 or 2.35 bars built in so you can see on the viewfinder?


Thanks

Assuming your camera has some sort of LCD in addition to the viewfinder, you can use a plastic overlay that clings to the LCD with different aspect ratios on it. Check out www.aspectcorrect.com. I have a few of them for my DVX and I like them so far. Hope that helps.
