UI and camera orientation locks should be separate

The problem I have enabled the orientation lock (Settings->Display->Orientation=Portrait) because that's my preference on how to use the UI. However, this setting has the side effect that all pictures I take with the phone's camera are saved in portrait mode, regardless of the actual orientation in which I have taken them. This is inconvenient, because it means I have to rotate them all manually afterwards.

The proposed solution There should be two different settings: (1) lock UI in portrait / dynamic / landscape mode (ideally in Settings), and (2) take pictures and videos in portrait / dynamic / landscape mode (ideally in the camera app).

This has already been discussed in this question, but the issue is not described clearly and there isn't an explicit feature request.
