    Whats the point of the new square camera option? I can't think of any reason to use it.
    But why isn't there one for a 16:9 mode instead?! It would be great to have pictures in fullscreen on the iPhone/iMac/TV Screen.
    Every Point n Shoot Camera has this option these days.

    Instagram and Instagram clones. Seriously, you didn't know that?

    See Widescreen (16:9) photo aspect?

    Why do I need an Instagram clone in the native camera app? If I want Instagram-like pictures I use the app for that.

    You know the filters are also modeled after instragram too right?

    That's a film format. It provides nice composition possibilities.

    Of course, you could just take the full frame and crop in a photo editing program, but you wouldn't be composing with that view when you take the picture.

    Square is very useful for avatars and profile pics.

    If you want 16:9, it's easy enough to crop it to Aspect 16 x 9
