    I get you're looking at a mirror image when taking the picture, but, the end result can have undesirable results.

    Any way to set the camera/phone to auto-mirror the image when done taking a picture? It's not even a manual option with the default cam... hrm.

    This is what the camera took.

    This is what it actually looked like, and the way the picture should have looked.

    I just noticed while looking through the pictures. I was like .. "Wait, I was in the left seat.." Then I noticed the nav table was on the wrong side of the plane...

    Minor, but still kinda shows an unpolished product. :\

    mirroring is a feature for webcams (well any front facing camera where you are getting a feed while looking at the camera). if you aren't mirrored, then you move left, and the camera sees you moving right (because it looks at you) and then the image of you on the screen moves the way opposite of what you expect.

    you expect it to be mirrored, just like looking into... a mirror.

    in any case, i'm just saying its not sloppy design. i'm not sure if you can set it to unmirror itself.

    That makes sense, and I agree with it. And I guess I should look at it that way... that the secondary camera is more of a novelty than anything.

    Would be nice to have the option, or have it automatically flip the pic horizontal.

    BTW - prolly shoulda mentioned this sooner, but just to make sure everyone knows:

    Photoshop.com Mobile is free in the Market - use the crop-looking tool in the upper left-hand corner - and then choose flip.
