Could you elaborate on how this can be reproduced? See my answer below, but actually it has nothing to do with android, so I might have just got you wrong and maybe we're talking about different things.

I think this is a feature rather than a bug, so that we know in which direction to shift our head for a better duckface angle on the selfie :) like looking into a mirror.

The resulting image is not mirrored.

Actually, I just took my first-ever selfie to check this out (miserably failing at duckfacing, though) and think that the mirrored view is quite comfortable - I might actually use this for shaving on the next camping trip, thanks for pointing this feature out :)

so it's happening only on android?

@c.la Oh, I completely missed that there's the word "Android" in the question... interesting. I was talking about the Sailfish camera: preview on display is mirrored, the resulting image is not. AFAIK, Android apps cannot access the camera functionality at all, or do they?

I have a little another problem, when I use skype I see myself up side down, but other side told me that he see me correctly. Why this and can I fix it somehow ? Already tried to remove skype and install it again, but without result..
