Oh yeah
Most digital Point and shoots generally take 4:3 shots (proportion height x width)
Film 35mm cameras took 3:2 (or 6 x 4's) - or if you really like 1.5 (3/2)
Some cameras take 4:3 and on one setting they also do the post box 3:2
which is handy if you want to print straight off and mount in a photo frame
This new Oly does 4:3 at top mp setting - but at the next size down it has
the option for 3:2
Here's the list:
3648 x 2736
3200 x 2400 (3:2)
2560 x 1920
1600 x 1200
1280 x 960
1024 x 768
640 x 480

All those NOT labelled (3:2) are 4:3 - (1.333333)
try it on a calculator

Asmit ~
It's all about photo shape proportions
Our old 35mm film piccies were in a 3 to 2 proportion - so a typical print might have been 6 x 4
which is 3:2 proportion
Normal screens and digital cameras are mostly in 4:3 proportion - not proportionally
as wide as the 35mm ones. Many cameras now include the option for 3:2 proportion

Brian - what was that about rhubarb???
