Hello! I'm on a 60D and have typically cropped everything to 1.85 aspect ratio in post. Lately, we've started cropping to 2.35 because it looks awesome but I'm finding it really difficult to frame shots and visualize the look on the screen during actual shooting without leterboxes in the camera's live view. Like this: http://www.handheldh...s/panascout.jpg I know this is one option: http://static2.filma...04/image013.jpg But I'd really rather not put tape on the camera. I also would like to stay away from physically blocking the lens because we switch primes and they all have different diameters. I also would like to avoid Magic Lantern because the last time I tried it, it just slowed down everything and the way it loaded screens looked scary. Is there no way to internally work with canon's software to make live view letterboxes? I'm essentially looking for the least destructive way (for the camera) to see framing in different aspect ratios. What do other people typically do? Thanks in advance! Matt
