    I use code like shown below to choose one of the supported preview sizes for displaying the camera preview. What I am seeing is that if the chosen preview size is 240 x 160 (an unusual aspect ratio of 1.5), the preview looks stretched. ie. it looks like the camera is capturing at a lower aspect ratio (something like 1.3) and then stretching it to become 240 x 160. If any of the other supported preview sizes (128x96, 160x120, 176x144, 352x288, 320x240, 640x480) are chosen, the preview looks fine. Also, this only happens with the front-facing camera. The preview with the rear camera looks fine at 240 x 160.

    Is anyone else seeing this? Is this a known issue?
