    Re: 16:9 aspect ratio

    OK here is a work around
    . Open View NX or Capture NX-D.
    . Select the Directory of your images.
    . The thumb nail images should be now displayed on the screen.
    . Select all.
    . Use the crop tool, set to 16:9 preset ratio. Crop one images, all the images should be now cropped.
    . Export the images to jpeg. This is where you can reduce or increase the size.

    Re: 16:9 aspect ratio

    I seriously don't understand how cameras that we paid this much for don't have this most basic of features built in. I was playing with my D3200 for 30 minutes trying to figure out where this basic setting was hiding, and googled to find this thread. All I want is an easy way to edit stills into 16:9 video projects. I hope Photoshop Elements has an easy method for this.

    Just about every photo editing app ever created can crop an image to 16:9.
    Don't mind me... I'm out roaming around somewhere between Zone III and VII.


    Go forth and actuate!

    Re: 16:9 aspect ratio

    Nevermind, I found out my Panasonic GH4 Takes pics in 16:9. This camera is usually mounted in my DJI S900 drone, but it does everything I need it to do unlike my Nikon, so it is worth it to remove from the camera gimbal (Pain in the ass) to use it for basic features that any camera should have these days IMO. The less stuff I have to fix in editing the better. I was about to start using my Sony point and shoot that does 16:9 for basic stuff (Mostly youtube tutorials needing still shots) until I found out my GH4 did it. Amazing that Nikon left out such a basic feature...

    The thing is that to shoot in 16:9 aspect ration, the camera will trim the top and bottom. That reduces the total MP of the image, as most sensors for cameras are in 3:2 aspect ratio.

    By the way, Nikon shoots HD videos in 16:9 aspect ratio out of the box. So if you are shooting videos (as opposed to stills) you get 16:9.

    There are so many popular ways to crop a picture, that adding them all to an entry level camera would probably confuse the target audience. I use regularly 3:4, 4:5, 1:1 and 2:1 and even 3:1. For me 16:9 is not usually wide enough.

    Cropping is just a software setting, so adding it to a camera should be trivial, but choosing the ones that please everybody...
    9 Nikon single-digit pro bodies from D1H to D5.
    12 Nikon three-digit consumer bodies from D100 and up.
    56 Nikkor prime lenses from AIS 8/2.8 to AFS 400/2.8VR
    4 Nikkor zoom lenses: 14-24/2.8, 17-35/2.8, 28-70/2.8, 70-200/2.8VR
    My fastest lens is f/1.2 (x3) and slowest f/2.8

    Re: 16:9 aspect ratio

    I get what you are both saying, but it is in my mind a very basic feature that I need, So I will use a different camera that has this basic feature, or take a still from the 1080P video from the D3200 if A ~2MP will due. But with almost every major display device these days being in a 16:9 ratio, how does Nikon not offer this as a standard shooting aspect? I get that the image will be cropped vs. what the image sensor can capture, but I think a little trimming of a 16MP sensor image will be quite acceptable for most people needing a 16:9 image. This is just Nikon dropping the ball on a very basic feature IMO.

    I have a Fujifilm and it is set to 16:9 also. Also, the focus works better on the Fujifim. I have a D5600.
