Posted 20 September 2011 - 07:52 AM
Please advice if you know of any digital camera that can do this or if I can change the aspect ratio in imovie somehow without letterboxing the video.

While you can choose the resolution, really, it's best to shoot at the top resolution (1920x1080p) and use your video editing app to downsample if you feel that's necessary. A lot of people would rather shoot and upload at 1920x1080, since on YouTube a viewer can always choose a lower resolution on playback.
Just remember that resolution isn't everything. The $15,000 Canon C300, $2500 Canon 5D MkII (standard DSLR for video pros), $400 Canon S100 point-and-shoot, and the $200 iPhone 4S can all shoot 16:9 1920x1080p. The difference is in the lens choices and numerous other factors that affect how good those 1920 pixels actually end up looking. Quality, not quantity.
P.S. Ignore the post above by gabrielawilliam. The style and embedded link is clearly that of the latest type of spammer, who only posts to put up a spam website link and couches their answer in words that are only sort of related to the question, in an attempt to avoid appearing as a spammer. But they are.
