    They show up Square, no matter what settings I use. Something I'm doing wrong?

    look for camera setting (main screen - camera and cog icon) > 16:9. You have it on 4:3

    Thanks Mako, I thought that was just the viewing screen.

    If you shoot with the 4:3 aspect ratio you get 4000 x 3000 pixels
    If you use the 16:9 format you get 4000 x 2250
    You would be better off to shoot 4:3 and get a bigger original image and choose what to crop yourself .. more sky or more foreground.
    That gives you a lot more flexibility.

    Keep in mind the sensor is 4:3, so to get the 16:9 aspect ratio it is cropping the frame. It might be better to just crop in post so you have more flexibility.
