Barcode Camera issue

Surface Pro 4 (Win10 1709) + Powerapps Studio (2.0.770)

App: Portrait

Surface Pro 4: Landscape


I'm making a barcode scanner.

In edit mode previews, both camera displays correctly.

But when running the app, camera image reversal and mirroring.

(Android phone & Iphone/ipad image displays correctly.)

Similar problems:
The problem seems to have been long,
but still unresolved.

Are you using the new barcode scanner? This is the one that opens in a new screen instead of having a live feed in the app. The new barcode scanner does not have any known issues with rotation and flipping.

I went and recoded my apps to use the new barcode scanner and it "Rocks"!

Works beautifully.  No issues and it is very quick to scan.

IPad, IPad mini, IPhone and Galaxy 8 & 9 models.

My bad  - I used the wrong one. I just tried the new one and it works great
