    Hello Crackberry users

    I'm a Curve user and decided to switch to OS10. I was wondering about the camera on the q10.
    As far as I know, the screen is 720x720 and the back camera is 8MPx, but does anyone know what scale would be the photos ? 1:1 like the screen or somerhing more like 4:3 or even (in my dreams aha) 16:9 ?
    I'm sorry if that was already asked, don't blame me please ^^

    I'm not clear on what you're asking. The camera is the same as on the Z10 (as far as I recall), so the images themselves would be the same.

    Are you merely asking about how they will look when displayed on the screen? That's unrelated to the camera...

    Also it sounds like you're sort of asking about what's called "aspect ratio" and not "scale". Scaling an image is when you make it bigger or smaller. Changing the aspect ratio is when you "stretch" it so that the pixels are effectively no longer square. I'm sure images won't be stretched improperly to fit the screen, so you'll end up with black bands above/below or to the sides, as appropriate, so make the images fit the screen without a change in the aspect ratio. If the camera was in 4:3 mode when the image was taken, it will still be in 4:3 mode onscreen, with black bands above/below to use up the extra space.

    I would be awfully disappointed if the pictures was 4:3 or worse 1:1.
