Sometimes being a square is the last thing from boring. Shooting using square dimensions gives your photos a quirky, collectable feel that captures the essence of a ‘snapshot.’ With the Samsung NX300 SMART CAMERA you have the option of changing your shooting ratio from the typical landscape and portrait to a square ratio.
With the NX300 you can shoot in 1×1 using the following pixel dimensions: 3648 x 3648; 2640 x 2640; 2000 x 2000; and 1024 x 1024. Select your desired photo resolution and aspect ratio by selecting MENU > Photo Size.
Shooting in square is all about the details. While some small images may go unnoticed in a full landscape shot, shooting in square is similar to shooting in Macro. With a smaller space, it’s hard to miss anything in the shot, and you can fill up the entire frame without it feeling overwhelming.
With square snapshots you can play around with abstract and more traditional perspectives of a scene. Since they’re small in dimension, they can easily be placed together as a diptych or triptych to be framed later on. You can also create interesting collages by combining all of your 1×1 snaps from your latest trip or adventure!
