I am curious how you all frame shots for letterboxing? How do you set it up so you get all you want in the frame, but still have letterboxes?
Thanks!

If you are doing 16:9 you should not need anything. You camera should display what you will get, even if it only darkens the top and bottom edge.

If you are doing anything wider you can put tape on your view screen while shooting. If you need to see things that are displayed where the tape goes then use cellophane tape.

Okay, that sounds like a good idea, thank you!
