    What is your favourite aspect ratio?

    Hi!

    What is your favourite aspect ratio? I don't want to limit the discussion to negative format, since it is possible to crop negatives. Also I believe some have several favourites depending on subject matter. Please make a list.

    I calculate the aspect ratio the following way:
    long side / short side = aspect ratio
    eg. for 4x5" film: 5 / 4 = 1.25

    Since I'm in Europe I find 4x5 LF format to be a little off with standard frames, so I'm actually going from 1.25 ratio to 1.33 by cropping my negs a bit. And actually I like the European format a lot :-)

    I also like 1:1 but I like panoramic 2:1 and 3:1 too.

    1.00 or 1.38 (which in practical terms is 6x6 or 13x18 cm in my case).

    Steve, any progress on your 2:1 camera, BTW?

    Depends on what I am doing. Sometimes 1:1.5; sometimes 1:1 sometimes 1:1.25; sometimes 2.7182818284590452353602874713526624977572...

    1, unless I'm feeling really adventurous, in which case it's 1 with a 90 degree twist. Leo
