Is there a way to set the default photo aspect ratio to 3:2 (from 4:3) in the default camera app in iOs? I know it can be done using different photo apps, and I know that photos can be cropped to a variety of aspect ratios after they’ve been taken. But I’m looking for a way to set it before taking photos, using the default camera app.

  • I believe you can not change the aspect ration by default but as per Rich Mogull comment that we can see the 4:3 landscaped photo in landscape orientation by first zooming in and then zooming out on the photo. it sounds crazy but works

Unfortunately, with iOS where it is right now, this is not possible. We have watched progressive improvements over time with the default camera app but there are still quite a number of limitations regarding "defaults" in the camera app.

  • Thanks. That's what I thought. An acquaintance was telling me it was possible. I looked thoroughly for the option and couldn't find it. But I wanted official confirmation, since my acquaintance had been so insistent. I'd like to vote up your answer but don't have a high enough rep. yet. Nov 23, 2014 at 12:46
