Hi,

I have a weird issue with my Iphone 4s camera. When I'm taking a picture with the phone everything works fine, but when I plug the phone into the laptop/PC I see all my pictures reversed/sideways (i.e., if the picture was horrizontally taken with the phone, I can see it vertically when I plug the phone into the laptop). The same problem is for video recording too.

Does anyone know anything about this?

Thanks,
Bogdan

It's just the orientation of your phone when you're taking a photo/video.

Personally, it's never bothered me and I just fix it if it's wrong when I transfer/open it on my PC.

I don't think there's a setting to change this, iOS will auto rotate the photo when you view it on your device.

Its all depending on what programme you are using to view the picture.

iPhoto etc and most Mac based apps can handle it fine. Windows photo viewer etc are too stupid to work out the orientation.
