    Hey guys. Was curious to see what you guys think. Should i shoot DCI 4K or UHD for my 2x Anamorphic setup? I have a sankor 16 2x i used with the gh5 and gh5s. I really dont want to stop shooting DIY anamorphic.

    DCI 4K is a 1.9:1 aspect ratio, with 2X anamorphics becomes 3.8:1 aspect ratio.
    UHD is a 1.77:1 aspect ratio, with 2X anamorphic becomes 3.55:1 aspect ratio.

    Shoot UHD because you’re gonna crop the sides off considerably anyway.
