Hi, I can't figure out how do I stop my camera from stretching photos from bottom up,  making people taller and absurdly stretched if I click photos vertically and position camera at an angle to capture.

Hi @Sam77777 ,

I have never heard of anything related to this model camera doing something similar. Do you mind sharing some examples so any moderator or myself can advise you further? Is this happening with all the camera modes and light conditions?

Thanks for posting this @Sam77777, well, this is effect is caused by the perspective that 20 degrees create over the subjects. If you set this to 80 or 90 degrees the legs will look normal.

Two more examples, please can you clarify what do you mean by set the prospective to 80 or 90, do you mean always keep you phone exactly upright and 90 degrees from the ground? This never happened in any old galaxy photos I had, even having a small angle upwards when you try to capture more, it distorts the entire photo. What's happening here? 20211217_210631_33726_1639775194.jpg20211217_210628_33725_1639775191.jpg

Below are 2 photos with 0.6 and 1 x zoom. Just wondering is the 0.6 zoom behaviour expected or is there a fault given this is the most powerful flagship smartphone from Samsung.

I read the article, provides much clarity. I am not a photographer so good to know. Maybe wide lens isn't the best to click people photos from a short distance as it appears circular. Thanks for the help
