Sony HDR-SR5 camcorder -record in 4:3 aspect?

  MartynHoll 23:18 17 Jun 2007

I have just bought a Sony HD camcorder and I want to be able to have the choice of recording in 16:9 aspect ratio or 4:3. I cannot see any option to do this. Can this be done with Hi-Def camcorders?

Ok, ta. I have read the manual and it talks about HD & SD settings which seem to show 16:9 & 4:3, but I have recorded in SD today at it still looks like 16:9!
