    I have an iPhone 4S with 5.0.1 installed. When I used the volume + button to take landscape pictures/videos, they appear upside down when I view them on the computer... It's pretty easily solved to rotate a photo, but a video is harder.

    Anyone else have this problem/know a fix? Thanks!

    Have you tried a different video player? I'm not totally sure that the camera app does this, but video comes from the camera a fixed 'way up', and you can then either rotate them before saving the video file, or you can just specify in the file which way up to play it. If it's the latter and your player doesn't support that, it's going to end up upside down.

    Lots of threads about this. Depends on your photo management on your computer. You can avoid it by always taking pics and videos with the home button on the right side (which means the volume buttons are on the bottom).
