It sounds like you just need to adjust the aspect ratio for your images. The aspect ratio is the ratio of the width to the height of your images. We measure it in pixels, but it works in inches and centimeters, too. If you make prints, you want to select an aspect ratio comes closest matching the aspect ratio of the print you want.
Here's how to adjust the aspect ratio in your camera:
You can change the width to height ratio of an image.
|The same aspect ratio as HD TVs, used for displaying on wide-screen HD TVs.|
|The same aspect ratio as 35mm film, used for printing out 5 x 7 in. or postcard sized images.|
|The same aspect ratio as the screen of this camera, used for printing images on 3.5 x 5 in. to various A-sized papers.|
|A square-shaped aspect ratio.|
