A71 -- Ultra wide video

I have a decent-sized YouTube channel (almost 10,000 subscribers). For the last year and a half, I used an A30 for all my videos (and an actual Canon camera, occasionally). The ultra-wide video was fantastic. Very wide (123 degrees), which gave it a really cool effect, almost like a fisheye, as the colours really stood out compared to the standard video.

I got an A71 last week, figured it was time for an all-around upgrade. But it seems that the ultra-wide angle of the video is not nearly as wide as the A30! The still camera still has the 123 degree ultra-wide, but the video is clearly not as wide. Am I missing something, or did Samsung actually reduce the width of the ultra-wide video camera?
