120fps mode only has narrow FoV

Just wanted to know whether this is a common unresolved issue that will be fixed in a forthcoming firmware update or is this only my problem?
The problem being - the setting for field of view is "wide" and it says that 120fps mode has 170 degree FoV on the package, but all my videos in this mode come out with a medium FoV.

(Super slow
wide angle
848x480 For smaller data files. This is standard
definition resolution. Great for super
slow motion.

Update: see attatched photo of comparisons of FOV between wvga 60 wvga 120, and 1080 narrow (very middle box) and the red one being 1080 med. I'll have to agree, the FOV in wvga 120 fps is a match for the 1080 med which is 127(deg). There is no mention of the "narrow" in the online manual I d/l. I'll have to check the manual that came with. The wvga FOV is indeed 127. Good catch Rain.

. These are screen captures and converted to jpgs.

The photos used to make this comparison are here.
