    Hey whats up? I just got this camera about 2 days ago. I like it so far and I'm having fun trying out all the different features. One thing I noticed is that all my pics look a lil wide, like they are stretched just a hair... I spent a few hours looking through the manual and I cant figure it out. Anyone have any ideas what could be causing this? When I took some pics of my car my car looked wider IMO. Thanks for any info and help provided.

    Here are some very early pics..... when I looked at them everything seemed wide to me. Also these were taken with the 3 Megapixel setting... I didn't resize them, so sorry about the size. Anyways I'm very new to photography and I'd like to learn more about it so please if anyone can help I'd appreciate it.

    No I didn't, someone suggested its the 28mm lense on the 828 but when I asked what I should use for "normal" pics he never replied. Remember I'm a noob at this whole photography thing, I see at the top of the lense it has numbers like 35, 50, 70, etc so should I be taking pics at 50? 60? 70? to get rid of the wideness? But when I do take pics say at 50 or 70 they get really blurry cuz its hard to hold the camera steady, I have a tripod but that would be annoying to have to use it everytime.
