Google isn't done getting its Android camera app up to the standards set by third-party software -- not by a long shot. The company is now rolling out an update to Google Camera that lets you choose the aspect ratio for your photos, not just the resolution. If you prefer a movie-like widescreen look to all your pictures, you can crop the image to match. Fans of family portraits, meanwhile, will be glad to hear that the timer has returned; also, creative types can shoot panoramas with fisheye and wide-angle lens effects. The refresh isn't available on every supporting Android device just yet, but we'd give it a few days -- it should hopefully arrive in time for your next big photo safari.
