Hi- i think 3:2 is the size ratio between the sides - so 3:2 horizontal:vertical (16:9 is widescreen). It will also be 5 megapixels.

This format is ready for 10x15 cm printing without cropping and white strips. For example,directly to printer via PictBridge.

The pixel count is about 4.5 MP - I have a P10 and thats what it is there. Sony is one of the few that use the highest resolution for 3:2.

its a pre-sized format for 4x6 inch prints. the standard resolutions are more appropriate for screen display than printing.
