Is your front camera super zoomed in with Skype?

I've tried using skype and it works but the front camera is super zoomed in and only my head barely fits in the screen even when holding it at arms length. And I don't have a pumpkin sized head normally :)

Being new to the tablet scene, not sure if its a setting problem or if others notice it.

thx

I noticed the same thing and was not able to find any way to unzoom it in Skype.
When I used the Camera App and switched to the Front Camera it was not zoomed in on my face.

Probably won't make much of a difference since the front camera seems to be wider than the typical 4:3 in SD, but have you tried changing camera setting to SD 480p and then logging into Skype? (you might also try force closing Skype, or shutting down n7 after changing to sd 480p)

4:3 is typically wider on most devices... Just a thought...
