I want to know how to crop the EX-1 monitor (by using tape) to get an anamorphic frame. I know I would have to crop the images in post, but what is the easiest way to find the anamorphic dimensions on the Ex-1 LCD screen. It is much easier then I think It would be?

Thanks.

Hi Kyle,

first of all, you can't get an anamorphic frame just a frame with the same aspect ratio ;).
I'd do it by aiming my EX-1 at some kind of black or whiteboard and mark the edges of the frame on the board. Then calculate how high the 2.4 frame would be at that width. E presto, mark that on the board and tape the LCD accordingly.

Cheers, Dave
