    Which one of the settings outputs the highest resolution? 4:3, 1:1 or 16:9? It's strange that they couldn't just write out the resolutions for each aspect.

    I like fast format switching a lot. I miss such feature in most of camera apps (e.g. Google Camera is a disaster from this point of view). It would be nice to have a possibility to change default resolution, because I do not need to have huge photos with 16M resolution. I would appreciate some settings like:

    High: full resolution - 16M
    Normal: 8M-10M
    Low: 5M

    even better, it would be nice to have a separate setting for vertical and horizontal photos: I prefer 16:9 for regular photos, but it looks ridiculous for vertical photos. for verticals, I would stick to 4:3

    Looks like the only way of getting a proper working camera app would be to change to another app. Oxygen is almost as limited as Google's stock rom, if not even more limited by options (same goes for the camera settings)

    Well, that's the setting I'm also looking for. Where to change to smaller sizes? Or can anybody recommend an app supporting this?

    That's exactly the question I was
    going to ask. I just don't need to create 16 Mpx photos all the time, basically almost never. I just want to make photos that I can easily manage and send via Whatsapp, email, etc and backup.
    I would be happy with a 2 or 3 Mpx setting most of the time.
    The only option is to switch to another app. Now using Camera MX, but I'd like to be using the Op3 original camera app instead.
    Can we expect to have this implemented or no chance (I don't see much interest on this around, really)

    I have the same issue
    I like the câmara simplicity but, its to much
    We need the be able to choose the image resolution, the frame rate on video, simple stuff like that
    Please give us total control over settings like we had in the OP1 (my previous)
    Some basic filters will be nice too, but settings its fundamental
    Its really driving me nuts...

    Thank you in advance, for the update :)

    WOW no resolution settings for camera? That's like a basic thing.

    This is one of the reasons I prefer the ported Google Camera, as that lets you change the resolution, like the official version.

    4:3 will allow your camera to use it's full amount of Megapixels, 16 MPs (15.9 MPs is what it might say sometimes).

    16:9 will only use 12 MPs I believe. 16:9 Is pretty much a cropped version of 4:3. If you want that 16:9 aspect ratio, then take a photo in 4:3 and then crop it to 16:9. This way you maintain as much detail as possible.

    Also, if you want more features, try installing GCam. You can get it from XDA. Works REALLY well! That's what I'm using now.

    Very cool ! Thank you for that tip - i´ll use GCam from now on!
    Its a bit poor from OP not to give a possibility to change the resolution.
    That was one of the 1st options i was searching for.
