Hello to all cinematographers out there,

I am writting you cause i need your help regarding the anamorphic ratio on 5D mark2.
I am in pre-production of a short movie and i have talked to the director about using and exploiting the widescreen ration on the 5D.
So far i have been searching the web about tutorials , on how to frame your subjects and plan your shots having in mind that in post-production we are going to crop the frame so it fits the anamorphic ratio.

Truth is to be told, i am going for the first time to use this method of shooting and planning my camera setups. I am a newbie on this one , so please be kind , i am open to all suggestions and critic.

My question is how can crop correctly the live view on the 5D mark II so it fits the 2:35 anamorhic ratio?So in post production i know exactly where and how to crop the frame ,as i have framed everything according to the live view in the beginning. I will be using the following lenses Canon EF Zooms – 17-40mm / 28-135mm / 75-300mm.
Looking forward for a reply,
Peace, Petros.

Short answer: use tape or grease pencil on external monitor screen after shooting tests of charts and real world conditions in conjunction with the editor.
