General Stock camera app used to auto rotate in 1.5, not in 2.1?

    I searched before posting. I upgraded to the new 2.1 leak. Noticed the stock camera app doesn't auto rotate. It stays static in landscape mode. Is this the way it supposed to be or can it auto rotate just like it did in 1.5?

    No, it is supposed to stay in landscape, but it works the same either way. If you want to take a picture in portrait just turn and shoot. The picture will still be in portrait.

    I think it's a "feature" not a "bug." In 1.5, I always had to wait five seconds for it to rotate the controls before I could take a picture. That delay was annoying. Now that it always shows the controls in one direction, there's no delay when turning the camera different ways.

    there is no auto rotate but it is set to "widescreen" as a default. if you pull down the bar at the top of the screen and go to settings you can uncheck the widescreen box manually.

    I love this feature! It makes taking pictures a lot quicker.

    It just, detects how you are taking the picture behind the scenes :)

    He's right: It still saves the picture in the correct rotation, so it's aware of how you're holding the phone. (If I take a horizontal picture and send it somewhere, it shows up horizontal. Take a vertical picture, it shows up vertical.)
