Changing the Aspect Ratio (EOS REBEL T6/EOS 1300D)


In <P><Tv><Av><M>, the camera’s aspect ratio for images can be changed during Live View shooting.
The aspect ratio of the viewfinder is fixed to [3:2] and cannot be changed.

The image’s aspect ratio can be set to [3:2], [4:3], [16:9], or [1:1].
The area surrounding the Live View image is masked in black when the following aspect ratios are set: [4:3] [16:9] [1:1].
JPEG images will be saved with the set aspect ratio.
RAW images will always be saved with the [3:2] aspect ratio. The selected aspect ratio information is added to the RAW image file. When you process the RAW image with the EOS software, this allows you to generate an image with the same aspect ratio that was set for shooting. In the case of the [4:3], [16:9], and [1:1] aspect ratios, the aspect-ratio lines will appear during image playback, but the lines are not actually drawn on the image.
