Bizarre Camera issue

Hi all, having an infurating issue with the camera.


My app is fixed to portrait orientation, and my device is Surface Pro 4. I added the camera control, and it displays correctly, however, the image is constantly inverted, i.e., I see myself on the ceiling, when I am not. Turning the device does little, since it snaps to the other portrait mode when I turn it 180 degrees.


there is no way to "rotate" the camera control, but I really don't understand why this is happening. Has anyone expereinced this before?


I've added a screen shot to demonstrate. In the screen, I am holding the device in portrait, looking at a wall. As you can see, everything is not as it should be. It's like the camera control can only work in landscape, even when the app is fixed to portrait.Untitled picture.png

I got the same issue with Huawei P20 Light.
The output stream from camera is automatically changed (90° or 180°) and it occured quite often.


Looking forward for a workaround or a fix!




I have teh same issue and I have three different models of Dell Latitudes ... It works fine on iPhone XR at least when using the app but not when in "edit" mode (not that I would use the phone to edit 😕 )  I had to close my issue when this one was found so I hope there is a solution thanks
