Paul Wages of Atlanta wanted to know if we could work with an unmodified Canon camera with 4:3 exposures to make 16:9 ProRes HD.

Here are the results. We framed the Telecine sizing for 16:9 within his 4:3 film for this recent Wedding Trailer he edited.

This is great! Is this V3 200T? Canon 814 or 1014 XL? Cropping the 4:3 S8 frame still holds up. I suspect your diopter was not set correctly as some of the shots specifically the zooms are a tad soft.

Keep shooting.
