If I buy Nexus 5 from Koodo store today (Nov 2014), can the Nexus 5 take 16:9 photos? Or do I need to update the factory-installed software on the Nexus 5 to take 16:9 pictures?

As far as I know, the Google Nexus phones gives a 16:9 preview but will take 4:3 photos.

I'm not sure about the N5's capability to take 16:9 photos however if this helps, the model of the N5 koodo sells is the same as the model directly from google.

Okay, anyone who recently purchased a Nexus 5 from Koodo can confirmed if the Nexus 5 takes 16:9 photos?

I don't have my N5 on me right now but just go into the settings and check if it's an option under picture size

I have Nexus 5 that I got from Koodo. Albeit using custom rom, but the camera app is from Google, so it should be the same. And it does have 16:9 settings with several options (6mp, 2.1mp & 0.9mp)

Thank you, JP, Du and others! Now I can consider buying the Nexus 5, when it first came out and the previous Nexus, gives the user a 16:9 preview but take 4:3 photos. The screenshot is certainly reassuring.
