    Does the G7 further crop the jpgs you extract when using the 4k photo to achieve 4:3 aspect ratio? I think that there's a 1.1x crop factor during 4k video recording in 16:9. I've read you can specify the aspect ratio for 4k photo, so I'm wondering if it maintains the height of the 16:9 image and crops the sides further for desired ratio.

    Thanks!

    Supposedly it's the same 2.3x crop factor regardless of the aspect ratio chosen. I.e. it does not crop from 16:9. At least, that's the way it is on the GX8.

    Thanks for the link - I follow that site but hadn't read that article. Then I read the article a couple of times before I noticed you had asked (and had answered) my exact question!
