Thanks guys! I am used to my point & shoot.
It just looks weird on my 16:9 monitors showing friends pics with white borders. I would think as hi-tech as this camera is it would have this feature along with a 4:3. I really don't want to have to crop 100 pictures after a shoot for a professional view to present.
Do any DSLR's comparable to the D5500 offer 16:9?
I am thinking none. But again, you can always crop them later to any shape. Some raw editors have easy ways to crop all images at once to any shape for special presentations. Then you can go back through quickly, scooting the frame up or down to center the subjects, before output of the temp copy.
Out of curiosity, which compact provides 16:9 still pictures?
Camcorders do typically only take still pictures in their same 16:9 movie format, is that your meaning?
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...
