What do you mean, to convert? To crop from 4:3 to 16:9? You'll probably want to do it manually - nice to know what you crop . You can convert images in batch mode with free NConvert available at http://www.xnview.com/ , but I don't think you'll be able to upload them back to your camera, which is a bit problematic. You might try to do that with TVwriter from http://www.david-taylor.myby.co.uk/s...e/imaging.html , but I don't know if it works for the A70. If you try and it does, let us know .

yes i do, it is not just so simple though, you can convert a 4:3 to a 16:9 but you need to know the resulting resolution, in any case i know such a tool but i cannot tell you where it is since it would be spam lol
The name is Aspect Ratio Video Resizer, go look for it if u like

G'day VL

If it's a simple & easy conversion you're after, PS Elements can do it semi-automatically if that's what you want

Using the File > Process Multiple Files options
you can set up lots of options and do dozens or hundreds of images at a time - while you sit back & have a cuppa :-)

Hope this helps
Regards, Phil

If you don't have elements, irfanview will do it nicely for free. i usually crop off the top and then review. the few that end up with terrible half-heads, i go back and edit individually. portrait orientation shots need to be done separately from landscape. Heres the setting i use (my sensor is 3:2 i believe). you need to do the math. you want to end up with 1920x1080.
