Default [Q&A] galaxy s4 camera

Just a quick one, the camera on the stock s4 takes 13mp photos at 16:9 size, but all the custom ROMs I've tried can only take photos in 16:9 if they are taken at 6mp, any higher and picture is letterboxed on the left and right.

Anyone know why, or what I can do about it?

That's what I'm finding with all the ROMs I've flashed, but a stock Galaxy S4 takes 13mp at 16:9, I was wondering if there was any way I could get the same results on a custom ROM.

i don't think so ...

according to Antutu about the hardware information

4128 x 3096 = 12.8 Mega Pixels , right.

obviously, 4128 - 3096 = 1032 , fine

4128/1032 = 4 and 3096/1032 = 3 , so ... in 12.8 MP , the picture should be 4:3

stock ROM and stock camera , if you don't change default setting , the picture is taking at 4128 x 2322 at 9.6 Mega Pixels

Which is 16:9, unfortunately, as far as I know, nothing you can do to alternate mathematical laws

Stock Rom will take 13MP at 4:3 and 9.6 MP at 16:9 Format and that is due LCD and Hardware configuration
So u have wrong information about 13MP at 16:9 format
