    I doubt the photo format ratio is one of One Plus' priorities

    Jesus Christ..... The sensor size is 4:3 which is the full size. 16:9 is cropped. Instead of 16 mp in full size you will only have about 12 mp....
    One should always shoot in 4:3 and if absolutely necessary you can use Snapseed to easily crop to any format but as said losing resolution.

    Google would be an excellent tool to find these informations instead of posting senseless threads.

    While I agree with your sentiment in general, it does make sense to change the sensor size standard to 16:9, as is all our displays.

    Actually not. The perfect sensor shape is circle or square because how the lens works, and 16:9 screen aspect ratio is a legacy from 4:3 (4^2 : 3^2), it is not suitable for browse documents, web pages etc.

    So what? The sensor size is never 16:9, standard size is 4:3as explained. So if you want full screen size you dont need 16:9, you need 18:9, otherwise you have black bars on left and right size.

    99% of computer displays are 16:9, c correct?

    Full screen on a computer monitor is 16:9. Have you heard of them?

    If you want to suggest another sensor size to Sony etc please feel free to contact them. Nobody here can help you.

    I don't want a 16:9 aspect sensor, 4:3 is perfectly fine.
    I was just commenting that the other guy who did want it - I understood him and it made sense to me.

    BTW, photography is boring, as are photography nerds with their poor man's DSLR in the form of a smartphone with a tiny dinky baby camera that costs $60 :)

    You know, I just did a back of the napkin calculation (more like Microsoft Paint writing with mouse) - it doesn't take much away to convert a 4:3 sensor into a 16:9 sensor.

    A 16:9 image that fits in a circular image, projected by a camera lens, is only 11% smaller (by area) than a 4:3 image. So basically, the same camera lens could be used to either create a 16mpx 4:3 image or a 14.2mpx 16:9 image.

    So you see, if the industry did decide to switch the standard photo aspect ratio from the 4:3 to the 16:9 one, it wouldn't be that much big of a deal.

    Who knows.... And as long as you just talk around your idea in a user forum, obviously nothing will happen... See above.. Why don't you contact Sony and other sensor manufacturers?!.....

    I already contacted Sony, Oneplus, The Motion Picture Association of America, the President, and your mother. Except for your mom, they all said no.
    Dang!

    Correct, and I also said it is a legacy from 4:3.
    My point is, for a camera sensor, 4:3 is worse then square / circle, and 16:9 will be even worse than 4:3.
    Do you know how the lens works? If you really want a 16:9 sensor, then curve it like a bowl, it will make it a little bit better, but still not an optimized choice.
    BTW, curve a sensor is not that simple, it involves a lot of other problems.

    Back to the initial question, you want 16:9 aspect ratio built in to the OP camera app, that is alright, I totally understand it. Just like 19:9 ratio is in the OP camera app because OP6 has a 19:9 screen (close to), having 16:9 ratio for most of the screens out there is reasonable.
    However, just like digital zoom, crop image to a different aspect ratio than the sensor ratio is deleting information from the original picture. That is why I always suggest people not to digital zoom or set aspect ratio in camera app. If you want a different aspect ratio, you can crop it afterwords, because having all the information available to edit is better then drop them from the beginning.

    Well... Talking about stupid formats, like 19:9 or 1:1, you should include also 16:9....
    Don't you know that those formats are all cropped? If you want full sensor resolution like 16 mpx you should only use 4:3 full sensor size to shoot. Then later if you absolutely think about needing other size ratio you can always edit later and crop your pics as you want
