    Would love to see support for more image aspect ratios then 3:2, 16:9 and 1:1.
    Ratio: 4:5 and 6:7 to be more precise.
    Would save allot on post-processing and be a first.

    More people missing this as well?

    Welcome to the forum!

    Frankly, I have not. When I want to use another ratio, I just PP. I flip to photos anyway so it does not add much time for me. But that might be personal.

    And it's welcome from me. Like Peter I have not felt the need. I am entirely happy composing within the native ratio.

    Are you shooting JPG and not doing additional PP? If so then I could see how you might find this useful.

    I shoot RAW so I have to process all my photos anyway. When I do want to change the aspect ratio I simply apply the aspect ratio to all the photos in a batch at once (in Lightroom it's easily done with one step from the Library module). FWIW, I prefer doing it that way rather than setting it in camera since it allows me to move the cropped area around a little bit if I want to.

    You could of course do that with JPGs as well but that only helps if you're using Lightroom or a similar editor in your workflow already :)
