On my Dev B unit when I take a picture from the filepicker dialog the picture is saved correctly but when I run the app on the actual Z10 the picture is save in landscape even though the phone is in portrait mode.
anyone have this problem?

This could be an orientation issue. Pictures get tagged using the app orientation, so if your app is locked into portrait mode and you take a picture while in landscape, the image will get tagged as portrait.

Unfortunately pictures are never get tagged properly even with the original camera app. They are just properly rotated in most cases (upside down orientation seem doesn't work).
"so if your app is locked into portrait mode and you take a picture while in landscape, the image will get tagged as portrait."
is it a bug or design decision?

It's the result of some design decisions, so it's technically "by design" and not just a coding error, but obviously not ideal and something we are going to fix.
I'm not sure what you mean in the first paragraph though. Are the pictures being saved and displayed correctly when taken by the camera app or not?

"I'm not sure what you mean in the first paragraph though. Are the pictures being saved and displayed correctly when taken by the camera app or not?"
They are saved and displayed correctly by all apps because they physically re-oriented into correct position and EXIF tag for orientation has always value of 1. I also used the word "almost", because if the picture is taken when the device is oriented upside down then picture is saved as it was taken in landscape mode. It seems that camera app is not able to detect flipped portrait orientation at all.
"but obviously not ideal and something we are going to fix" this is a worrying sign If you start fixing things then all our workarounds will become bugs

Yeah, upside-down is not a supported orientation for the platform at all, so any pictures taken while upside down are not going to be tagged correctly.
When it works, whether the picture is actually physically rotated or if it's just tagged as rotated can depend on the device. Orientation can be a tricky subject

"When it works, whether the picture is actually physically rotated or if it's just tagged as rotated can depend on the device."
Ouch, that's even more worrying. Would be great to have some uniformity
"Orientation can be a tricky subject"
not sure what do you mean. BlackBerry devices have orientation sensor (or even gyroscope), the only thing is needed here is to write that orientation into Exif header Of course the horizontal orientation is the one that may bring lots of troubles (screen pointing upwards or downwards), but all standard orientations are simple

Same case here....
I downloaded Google Camera modded version here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2
See my problem video here http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Q78wCLOs8YE
Everytime I take a picture by landscape, result's always portrait (rotate 90 degree).
Anyone can solve it?
