If you cut out areas of a picture to use a different than the native aspect ratio, that will always reduce the pixel count. 4:3 means 16:12, so with 16:9 you dump 25% of the vertical resolution, resulting in 9MP.
And as said several times already, the hardware quality of the sensors is more than good enough, changing them to something else doesn’t make any sense, but will only fill up the electronic waste landfill.
Choice of a telephoto lens instead of the ultrawideangle when buying the phone would be nice, indeed.
Ok, when choosing 4:3 I get 4000x3000, 12MP
When choosing 4:3 (high quality) I get 8000x6000 48MP
48 MP is too much most of the time (besides the lag of the shutter in that mode) 12 MP sometimes not enough. What I would like to have is something inbetween, say 6000x4500 (4:3) or 6000x3370 (16:9)
I am not sure if I remember that correctly, but I think in LineageOS I already saw such intermediate resolutions in prior smartphones I had (Samsung, Xiaomi).
What do you mean by ‘afterwards’? Saving the maximum size image and manually cropping if later on? I mean sure, that’s possible. But it doesn’t sound awfully convenient and doesn’t make nice framing any easier for someone taking a photo while targeting a specific aspect ratio.
I think providing a few software-based options maximizing each common aspect-ratio’s resolution would provide a nice middle ground in terms of making everyone happy.
Depends on how you look at it and what your goal is I guess. Same argument could be made for always saving every picture as a RAW file.
I namely see two advantages of immediate cropping:
It’s the ‘simple choice’ for someone looking to automize any post-processing and editing.
It makes it easier to see if everything is still in frame and looks good if you target a specific aspect ratio that’s slimmer than your current one. Imagine going from 4:3 to 16:9 - you’ll always need to cut away a minimum amount of image to reach that aspect ratio, as you can’t make it any wider. Even large film productions often use on-screen indicators how a shot would be framed if cropped to 16:9 or ultra-wide-screen when shooting in 16:10. (I believe the firat avatar movie made use of that for example irc, since the blu-ray and the cinema editions were released in different aspect ratios.)
Ah, I misinterpreted that a bit. Cause as far as I can tell by default there’s no high-resolution 16:9 setting (such as 8000x4500, or 8000x4512 to keep the 16-pixel alignment) either. 4000x2256 is the best it can do.
Der Topic heisst: “Camera Module FP5 für FP4”. Das liess mich davon träumen, dass es tatsächlich ein Hardwaremodul geben könnte, das sowohl in FP5 als auch in FP4 verbaut werden könnte. Sollte das nicht möglich sein, dann wäre auch ein Upgrade der Software eine super Sache, denn das FP4 mit seiner 50 MP-Kamera kann zwar 50 MP-Fotos aufnehmen, aber dann nicht mit der Kamera zoomen. Normale Bilder haben nur 12 MP. Mit Apps wie Open Camera sind auch gerade mal 12 MP möglich, wobei dann natürlich die Frage ist, ob das nicht Sache der Open Camera-Entwickler ist …
Nun, ich lasse mich mal überraschen. Ich bin froh um jedwede Verbesserung, sei es hardwaremässig oder softwaremässig.
