Hopefully this is the correct place to post this question?
I've recently purchased a Panasonic AG-DVC30 and am really happy with it, however it has two widescreen recording modes. One is a standard black bars (top and bottom) and the other is squeeze mode. I agther squeeze mode has a slight loss of picture quality?
I've used squeeze for 16:9 and when I import the footage into Adobe premiere it fits fine, however whenever I import the 16:9 black bar footage, it reverts to 4:3. I then have to expand the footage so I don't have black bars down the side of the film.
Any idea why the black bar footage appears to be 4:3 and not 16:9?
