    I personally prefer the widescreen format myself but I do need to do more shooting at the traditional camera format of 4:3. In fact, I'll change that setting now for the next time I grab some shots.
    I always prefer taking pics with the full resolution and without digital zoom. You can always crop later but you can't add something in that you missed.

    I never, ever use digital zoom. I'm a photographer on the side so I'm fully aware of the issues with digital zoom.

    Point and shoot, Auto everything, Dark garage. I was about 1 foot away from the chrome badge on my 65 Chevy. Awesome clarity and color for such a close shot w/flash. This is a screen grab from my Instagram post so the size is cropped.

    So you don't get the full 21MP unless you are using 4:3?

    That's correct. My understanding is that the 16:9 setting is basically a cropped version of a 4:3 picture and that this is a native 4:3 sensor, thus the reason 4:3 gives you the full resolution. Someone correct me if I'm mistaken.

    Pics are really looking good, guys. Keep em coming, please

    Really happy w/ the front facing camera also. Seems like the flash is a good use also.

    Anyone have bar pics? Looking for how the phone looks w/ somewhat lit areas w/ neons all over the place. I've seen a lot of neon signs cause heavy noise and am curious how this does.

    I might not even wait to see what the LG Nexus can bring if I keep seeing these solid shots.

    More.... more.. MOAR!!! lol

    You are 100% correct. 4:3 is the standard photographic ratio. 16:9 is based on the wide screen standard and is optimized for video. For example, if I shoot stills with my DSLR, it's at 4:3 ratio. But when I switch it to video, the live screen will show you the full frame but will also show the divider lines for the 16:9 crop. So you can literally see what part of the image you're losing while shooting video.

    So I will be switching to the 4:3 to get even more stunning shots! Thanks for the pro tip.

    What Android app can manually change shutter speed? So far as I know, only exposure can be adjusted.
    Here's one that claims to support it (I have no idea if it's any good, though):

    A search in the Play store shows many others, too.

    My point is if it's the way it chooses settings in auto mode that you don't like, try different software. If the shutter speed is fixed, though, any subject that moves fast enough will be blurred. It's simple physics.

    For any exposure, there are 3 variables: shutter speed, aperture, and ISO sensitivity. If you change any of them, you need opposite changes in the others to balance the exposure. Stepping up shutter speed to freeze motion reduces light, so either the aperture must open wider (if it can), or the ISO must be dialed up (which increases noise). Likewise, to reduce noise (in low light, for example), the aperture must open wider (if it can), or shutter speed must be reduced (which increases blur).

    Now it's possible for different camera software to balance these things differently, but there's no silver bullet. So unless there's a vast difference in either the lens or the image sensor, it's all just a tradeoff in exposure settings.
