    Hey,
    if I take a Photo or make a Video & Watch it, it's Mirror-inverted from the Front Camera. On the back Camera it's normal.

    Is this normal?
    Sorry for my Bad english.

    the image on mine is reversed when I look at the screen in CAMERA mode

    but...when I view the saved image, it is correct.

    Actually, it just shows the stuff inverted on the screen. When you actually take a picture, it's the right way around :).

    It's because the software inverts the picture to make it more natural for people to use - like a mirror. When the image is saved, it reverts it again to make it more natural to view as a photo.

    It's just meant to take all the thinking out of it, but people seems to focus on why it's doing that rather than just letting it happen :)
