No, it's rather a standard for a long time (35mm film). And Walmart prints my pix in 4" x 6" which is 2:3. How would they print a 4 x 5? With white borders on the ends?

Obviously the best solution would be to have a circular sensor with the circumference touching the image circle.  No more turning the camera 90 degrees for portrait, and you could set the dimension percentages for anything you like!

That would be cool for fisheyes!

While I'd love a 4X5 sensor format (my most common print aspect ratio), for web viewing I like the added length of 2X3.
