Default Video problems with T3i please help

for some reason my videos are mostly coming out 16:9 and very seldom they come out the full lcd screen size..each video now has thin black bars running from left to right across the top and bottom...when i first got my T3i all my video was coming out full lcd screen size and i only record in 1080p 30fps..i searched my menu and i dont see an option to switch 16:9 on or off..am i missing something?

1080p is an industry standard. The aspect ratio is fixed at 16:9. I suspect what you have changed is the aspect ratio of your LCD, which is user selectable. Your camera manual should tell you where to change it.

thanks for the input...

here is a video when i first got my camera shot in 1080 30fps >> http://vimeo.com/30003350

and thats how most of my videos normally came out

now all of a sudden mostly all of my videos come out like this using the same settings >>> http://vimeo.com/31134209

when i export from final cut pro 7 i select 1920x1080 HD not 1920x1080 HD 16:9

i dont think its a problem when i am in final cut because the footage is automatically like that when i pull the clips from my SDHC card..sometimes my video comes out like the first video link i posted and now mostly they come out like the second video link i posted.
