can I take a picture in 21:9 like the Xperia 10's?

I can do a 'grab' in 21:9 when using Cinema Pro but thats not quick or useful. Am I missing a setting somewhere as all I can see is 1:1 4:3 & 16:9?

Hi @weichai ,

 

I assume you could take photos in that proportion. Have you tried:

 

  1. While using the camera, tap  (Aspect ratio icon).
  2. Select a setting.

21:9 format is *not* an option in the camera app

, seems strange considering Sony describe it in their 'camera hints' as availible on Xperia 10/10 plus

you are probably correct, maybe Sony will add 21:9 format as softwre update, pity as your pictures filling the screen would look awesome

I cannot take 21/9 photos even though it shows up in the Support App on the Xperia 1, it's very annoying.

You can only tak 21:9 photos through the CinemaPro app. Such a strange omission from the regular camera app, to be honest. It's little things like this that keep Sony from being top dog in the mobile business.

Strange, they include a video tutorial on the Xperian1 that shows the 21/9 option on the regular camera app. Somebody messed up!

Re: can I take a picture in 21:9 like the Xperia 10's?

What on earth is going on?! How can Sony release a phone with a dedicated aspect ratio screen size, even with recording tools to fit the format, but not so for normal front camera shots?!

 

How can any multi-national top tier product be given the green light for release with such a glaring feature missing?! I was so looking forward to shoot in that aspect ratio from something as slim and

convenient as a smartphone, but I didn't think that the software wouldn't allow for it!

 

Can anybody confirm if an update has corrected the matter, and if some kind soul please upload a screen recording of the menu option and what a shot looks like. I've combed the web but cannot find any 4096 x 1728 imagery (2.39:1).
