custom aspect ratios...would be an amazing thing. Every job is different and every layout is different... seems that with an electronic viewfinder we should be able to have this...

lets start the conversation...

Even if no custom ratios are allowed, more options should be available. 3:2 and 16:9 in my A7RII are a joke. I also want 4:3, 5:4, 7:6 and 1:1 at least

I would prefer an overlay mask on screen with different aspects. The overlay would let you compose for unusual formats but the raw file would be full 3:2. Then you can crop in post. It's a bit like the old focusing plates with markings for different film formats. It's quite hard to compose by eye without format markings.

Agreed; Should be easy to do with a firmware update, it could work the same way as the 'rule of thirds' grid, just with different sizes.

Yeah, it would be so simple to do in firmware on a mirrorless camera. I did a fast google and found that movie cameras have overlay frame guides, both presets and custom. You can even set the transparency of the look-around area.
