    Thanks Lee. That's not my experience. Here's an iPhone 5 photo, shot in (vertical) portrait mode, with the power button and image sensor at the top of the phone. It is rotated by SMC 90 CCW.

    For landscape photos, I need to put the volume buttons, which control the 'shutter release', on the bottom of the phone to get it to display in SMC correctly. To me, 'shutter release on the bottom of the camera' is 'upside down'.

    So now you know where the top of the phone is. All you need to do is move to Australia and your phone will be right side up...

    I just finished a FaceTime session with my daughter who moved to Sydney a few weeks ago. I'll ask her to test this theory.

    I do have it figured out, as long as I stick to landscape orientation.
