I am working with an JVC Everio GZ-MS90E which is configured to produce a 16:9 video. But my aspect ratio is 5:4 instead of 16:9.

Width: 720 Height: 576

Width/Height = aspect ratio 720/576 = 1.25 = 5:4

Does anybody have similar problems or probably a solution how to fix that?

I am really annoyed because I don't know the right preset for my Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 sequence. I have already some clips and I would like to use them without transcoding.

Your video is 16:9, you just need to create a sequence at widescreen square pixel (1024x576, P/A of 1.0). If you drop the footage on that sequence it should appear 'correctly'. –  Oliver G Jul 24 '12 at 10:43

Now I found the right way for my footage. It was simple: Just right click on the footage, and select Ändern » Filmmaterial interpretieren. This is probably Change » Footage or something like that.

Then I fored premiere to use the aspect ratio D1/DV PAL Widescreen 16:9 and everything is fine.
