I have a client that would like her photos delivered 2560X2048 (5:4 aspect ratio). Is there a way I can change the aspect ratio of my 5DII or must I crop in post? Thanks

Yeah, crop in post. Many programs will allow you to do so but it's ridiculously easy with programs like Lightroom. Select the crop tool, select the ratio (or customize your own preferred ratio) and voila... the crop box is available and you just slide, move, rotate, yadda yadda and final output will have the correct ratio.

Yeah, even the 1D bodies that show Aspect Ratio "guidelines" are only for framing a shot -- they won't crop the captured image.

You'll need a Nik*n D3 to get 5:4 aspect images direct out of the camera.

Even Digital Photo Professional can do that, and even easier, if the aspect ratio has been set in the camera.

Yep, you'll have to crop the images. It's super easy to do with Lightroom, too.

There are interchangeable focus screens available for 5DII that show the different aspect ratios. I think they are only sold in a set and are pretty pricey. But the focus screen merely helps you with framing the image.... I.e., the image itself will still need to be cropped.

Just don't forget to shoot a littel looser to allow yourself room for the crop. You don't want to cut anything important off the final image.
