Changing the Aspect Ratio

You can change the aspect ratio for images while shooting. When you select the 16:9 aspect ratio, you can shoot images in a size that is suited for playback on a high-definition TV or printing on a wide size paper. This button is also used for switching between high definition and standard definition movie recording.
