    Default Photos don't fit screen

    How come when you take a pic with the iPhone 5 they don't fill the screen? It's as if the pics are only the size of a 4/4s screen.

    Can i change that?

    Nope. That is the aspect ratio that the camera takes the pics in.

    You are not taking a 16:9 picture. The pictures are still 4:3 which is why they don't fill the screen.

    How can one take a 16:9 landscape photo?

    Not with the stock camera app. I believe ProCam lets you shoot in 16:9

    also while shooting a video, you can snap pictures. Those will be 16x9. Not the best solution, but somewhat of an alternative.

    Those pics taken during a video are limited by video resolution rather than the full 8MP resolution of the still camera.

    Confirmed... Procam does shoot in 16:9. It's one of the options.

    Thanks. Don't understand why this isn't available from the get go if the camera has the ability to do it.

    Because pictures are 4:3, that's like the standard and stuff. ;-)
