Default Camera with adjustable ratio aspect?

I realize that most digital cameras are 4:3 aspect ratio, which means that 0.5 inches of 4X6 photos will be cropped off. Are there cameras out there that let you adjust the ratio manually? I would rather not have to "edit" each photo on the computer manually prior to printing. Thanks for any advice you can offer.

A number of camera models offer a 3:2 aspect ratio to deal with the situation you're talking about. For certain print sizes, you'll still have to crop a little, but not nearly as much.

Do any of the Canon models offer 3:2 ratios? Please let me know.

My Nikon 5400 offers image sizes of
4:3 2592*1944
3:2 2592*1728

I suspect many modern p&s offer similar. You will have to check the specs of the models you are interested in at Steves reviews

The new Canon powershot A75 has a 3:2 ratio. Have a look in reviews and see what you think.

Thanks guys/gals, I'll check out some of those suggestions. I didn't know the new A75 had 3:2 capabilities. I was almost set on the A80, now I have to think twice.
