Aspect Ratio

3.2 vs 16.9?

I noticed that the k3 has both but the k3 II only has 3.2. Would I be missing anything with the k3 II?

Both cameras share the same exact settings. I would assume the 16:9 refers to videos and 3:2 refers to stills.

I don't believe you can select 16:9 for stills on the K3, but you can post-process a picture in-camera to that aspect ratio. Video is 16:9.

I know the official K3 specifications list both 3:2 and 16:9, but there is nothing in the manual or menu (that I could find) that allows other than 3:2 to be set. I guess the 16:9 spec refers to video.

You can always crop.
