VIDEO: Which Aspect Ratio should YOU use on a cell phone camera? (*it depends)

Video Description

Which ratio should be used to get the most data in a phone camera: 4:3, 16:9 or 1:1? Today we find out! I found that the average person doesn’t understand how aspect ratios work on a cell phone… so here’s my explanation!

Honestly, I have this long list of topics to cover and I just got a camera that would actually autofocus on me accurately and effectively and which also has a flip-out screen (a Canon 80D). Thanks, Attabiq! So basically, this was a test video of an older camera that works for my purposes!

What the video to see what’s what with the Aspect Ratios on your cell phone’s camera.
