    I'm curious what others are using on their 1020s in Nokia Pro Camera for the Settings -> Pictures -> Aspect ratio. Do you use 16x9 or 4x3?

    On one hand, the 4x3 pictures use more of the sensor's megapixels, but don't display well on the screen (which is 16x9). An additional crop is needed for the down sampled versions to look their best, but setting the camera to take photos that way that way just ends up feeling like throwing away pixels unnecessarily.

    What setting do you use and why?

    for any device in general, we do the same I guess

    it is the same case with 920 , I use 16:9 coz it is better for slideshows and TVs. I usually show my travel pics to my family on a TV so 16 9 is ideal.

    Well, specifically I was asking in regards to the 1020 since the amount of image data thrown out between the two settings is so much greater.

    Also, with Pro Camera, 1020 owners (and soon other Lumias) can set a 16x9 crop for their 5mp downsampled image. I'm wondering if this is an extra step some owners take to keep their full resolution originals as large as possible or if it matters.

    depends on what I want to do

    16:9 for most shots i want edit

    but 4:3 if its something i need to send to twitter because for whatever reason twitter doesn't like the 16:9 small version and degrades the heck out of it, but not the 4:3 ones.

    though ive only been using the 4:3 so far with the 1020

    For me it depends mostly on what I am taking a photo of, e.g. for city or landscapes I would probably go for 16:9, but for portrait or pics of one specific item I would opt for 4:3; but in most situations its sort of ...well... you change it as you go.
