    If the aspect ratio was changed, the size of the camera image will be different. In this example, the aspect ratio was changed from 16:9 to 4:3, and the camera image has become shorter. Before, the size of the image, or shot, filled the screen. Now, with the smaller ratio, the image fills the screen width but the height is shorter.

    Repeat steps 5-7 to change the aspect ratio again. In this example, the ratio has been changed back from 4:3 to 16:9, and the camera image once again fills the screen.
