I'm on Temasek's unofficial CM11 rom, and I have this issue which has been bugging me since half a year ago when I made the jump from rooted stock roms to AOSP roms.

Whenever I take a picture using either the front or back camera, the width of the saved picture would be so much bigger compared to the image I'll see before I take the picture, causing it to have more objects in the final picture. It's really irritating because I'll never be able to take a proper picture without having objects and people photobombing.

Does anyone else have this problem?

same
I had a slimier problem that when I use the camera and set the pic as a home wallpaper, it becomes so much bigger and couldn't modify the size.

Issue has been solved after wiping everything and re-install the same rom. So I would suggest to wipe your phone and install the rom again.

That's a known problem in all aosp/Google stock ROMs, included n5 stock Rom have this problem.
The problem is that the camera don't have the black frames up and down to fit the real aspect ratio of the camera to view finder
For me is a annoyed bug, but seems that no lot off people are disappointed with it because there's no fix for it
Hope someone with more android knowledge could help us
