Other ratios calibrated on this ring are: 1.66:1, the European standard, 1.85:1, a non-amorphic wide screen ratio and 2.40:1, anamorphic wide screen, also known as Panavision or Cinemascope. A setting is also provided for 16 x 9, the aspect ratio generally accepted as wide screen for HDTV.
6 Glass Elements produce the sharpest image possible. Film sizes and video formats are color-coded for quick reading.
