“Why does the sensor have to be this one form of rectangle? It doesn’t have to be. … It could be circular, and capture the entire image circle, and allow you to crop later, so that no matter what ratio you decided to go you weren’t losing a lot of megapixels. As people are choosing more and more different form factors, it’s going to get more and more important to shoot in a wide variety of aspect ratios.” – Tony Northrup, transcribed by Jeff Fenske
