Why main camera still so wide?
1

Most decent phones now have an UWA lens. So why is the main camera still so wide? Most are in the 24-27mm range. Seems like with a UWA at our disposal we’d want a more people friendly focal length for the main Camera module. Something in the 32-35mm range. We still have that ultra wide lens for epic scenery and tight spaces.

honestly I think the UWA tend to be a little too wide, as well. 13-14mm is extreme UWA.

I think if I were designing my own, Triple cam, Iā€™d go 20-43-105mm or 18-35-85mm. Add a 200mm option for quad cam for ultra or pro models.
