Since Uitukka I am experiencing a quite strange bug in the camera picture preview. How to reproduce:

  1. Go to camera
  2. Swipe to the right to access the picture preview
  3. Skip some pictures
  4. Rotate your Jolla into the landscape orientation
  5. If you will now rotate to the vertical orientation again the picture you were viewing will be skipped and you will see an other picture which you took earlier
  6. You are able to skip all your pictures on this way until you get to the latest (/first) one

Edit: Confirmed in latest release.

Edit: Confirmed in1.1.4 / Äijänpäivänjärvi release as well.

Edit 2015-09-12: Still present in early access.

Found out this today too. Also a funny side effect:

  1. Skip to a video in portrait orientation with the sharing panel open.
  2. Start the video.
  3. Turn the phone to landscape orientation. Now the next image in the roll will jump on the video and you can still see the video playing in the background when you close the sharing panel.

Happens with pictures too, orientation change make it move to the next picture.

I know you guys have your hands full already, but this bug is particulary embarrassing! This issue has made two friends of mine laugh their bums off when they saw that this kind of bug had slipped through quality control. Please fix this and let us users spend good user experience!
