Ratios..... Funny thing about ratios... there are a lot of standards..
modern standards....

Square  1:1  ( lest you die laughing.... Hasselblad CF-V Digital back)
24x36    2:3
645        4:3
APX      4:3
HD TV   16x9
5x7        5:7
8x10      4:5
 8 1/2 x11    Whatever....but ALL digital paper is now in this aspect ratio
11x14    3:4
16x20    4:5
49x37    4:3   ( Hasselblad 22MP + 39MP Back)..... and what I think is the
most likely......

Of course there is the 14x17 and 17x22 paper formats and the various 120
film formats sizes ( 6x7, 6x8, 6x12, 6x17)

Probably a lot I forgot......

So format or proportion or aspect ratio or standard is not so uniform across
the field.....

The new R10 ratio could be any one of these...... any or, and think about
the nicety of this one.... ALL of them.
Just program the back to spit out whatever ratio it is you want......
