However, a 35 mm picture’s aspect ratio is 1.5 (three:2). Several digital cameras take images in both ratio, and almost all digital SLRs take photos in a three:2 ratio, as most can use lenses designed for 35 mm film. Some picture labs print photos on four:3 ratio paper, as well as the existing 3:2. In 2005 Panasonic launched the first shopper digital camera with a local facet ratio of sixteen:9, matching HDTV That is just like a 7:four side ratio, which was a typical size for APS film.
