Does anyone know if the monitor on the Video SK will switch from 4x3 to 16x9?

Thanks for the help!

The early ones didn't, but it's a pretty easy mod to install a potentiometer on the vertical size variable resistor to be able to dial in the aspect ratio on the fly. I did this back when I owned my Provid.

Sorry, Dave is right. I was confusing the sk with the provid model.

My SK 2 was NOT 16x9 capable and I had to upgrade recently to a GLIDECAM L7 Pro which is working out
fine. As far as I know, the SK2 was shipped with only a 4x3 monitor.
