    Its weird, its listed on the helium sensor at red.com, but its not there. I dont have the unified body but it should not make any difference as it is the same sensor.
    Update:
    Apperently the 8:9 is for Anamorphic, so that why i did not see it. And should likely only be used for this.

    Hi Joel,

    I had the same issue.

    On both Gemini DSMC2 and late FW Epic Dragon, 8:9 seems to have disappeared but on my Helium it's there! You can do the advanced thing but it still doesn't fill the 16:9 frame (you alyways get bars top & bottom).

    Please RED I know Epic Dragon is an old cam now & that you aren't releasing FW updates for it BUT damn I love 8:9 with my 2x Lomo ANA's for live music multicam gigs, where you have to output 16:9 live down SDI for the PGM where you can't mix 2:35:1 & 16:9 aspect ratios / bars etc. Making livestreams look like music videos is a beautiful thing and producers love those scope flares!

    Of course it's possible to make this happen with a scaling video processor like a BM Terranex 3D but damn it's much easier and cheaper to video engineer when the cam does it in camera.

    Please!

    PS if ur on Helium, it deffo works, I will take a pic tomorrow & send it to you if you haven't worked it out yet Joel.

    Yes, Craig Im on Helium. The shoot went well, but I will check out the 8:9 recording option for future as I decided to not do a 16:9 version. So therefor it will be nice to not record and then crop away data.
