AdjuvantJohn when you take a photo with a Canon or Nikon with the camera the right way round "shutter button on top", the photos come out ok. Why is this not the case with the iphone?
It is the case with the iPhone IF you take the picture with the Home Button on the right side. This puts the Red Button of the on screen picture taking on button on the right hand side just to the left of the home button.
The iPhone 4S with iOS 5.01 enables the Volume Up Button on the bottom left edge of the iPhone 4S held. The enabling of that button came long after the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S hardware was firm. So it was not meant to mimic the usual camera button.
Let me try and rephrase the question.
When you use a standard camera like a Canon or Nikon the shutter button is up top of the camera, normally off to the right hand side right? This is so it's easy to access and feels comfortable when clicking it.
So it's only natural that when Apple enabled the up volume button to act as a shutter button on the iphone that you would use it with the button on top so it's easy to access. If you turned the camera upside down so the shutter button is underneath and to the left it's harder to access and doesn't feel comfortable.
So with this in mind my questionis this. Why do photos\videos come out with the wrong orientation when the iphone is held in the correct orientation, shutter button on top? This can't be a deliberate decision on Apple's part. Ideally you always want your photos to be the right way round but at the very least they could flip it so that photos\videos come out right side up when you have the shutter button on top.
This is just a simple software change right? AdjuvantJohn I’m really struggling to see why you’re going on about EXIF data, CPU speed etc when the problem is a lot simpler than you realise.
I know this has reached 3 pages now, but this debate debacle has also reached 8 pages in this thread - https://discussions.apple.com/message/16514340#16514340. If you all post in there from now on Apple might see a massive thread about his issue and so might get off their ***** and fix it.
Also make sure to complain to apple here:

Well so much for iOS 5.1. It didn't fix the upside down Photo and Video problems. If you take a picture or video with the iPhone held so that the volume control buttons are on top, like Apple suggests, to use the volume + button as a shutter button then the pictures and vieos will be upside down when you put them on your PC. They are orientated correctly in the phone but not corrected when they are remove by iCloud or USB. Apple needs to fix this. One other thing Apple needs to fix is when you send a phot in an e-mial they drop the 'img_xxx.jpg' nmae and call it 'photo.jpg'. If you send several e-mails to a person then when they go to remove the pictures they have to rename them since each one is named 'photo.jpg', why doesn't Apple just send the 'img_xxx.jpg' name? They sort of do it with videos (except it is incremented in number for some unknow reason).
