    I just noticed today that the default for the front facing camera is to act like a mirror. I noticed it because the writing on my shirt was as if I were looking in a mirror.

    So I decided to turn off mirror mode so that the writing would be readable, and not only does it flip horizontally, the picture flips vertically. I would say this is a bug because now I am seeing myself upside down.

    Does anyone else see this strange behavior?

    Checked and confirmed on mine. Interesting issue. I hadn't noticed that before, but I rarely use the front camera.

    It is oriented correctly when in landscape. How do things like this get missed?
