    Default Galaxy S4: My camera won't turn vertically!

    My S4 camera was working fine, picture quality isn't the greatest but I really don't know much about the settings so I'm sure that can be fixed. I very rarely use the camera in landscape or horizontally,
    (I personally like having full screen pictures) but if need be, I could turn my phone and the camera would auto rotate (I have never had my phone itself set to auto rotate). Now, out of nowhere, my camera is stuck in landscape mode and all my pics and videos are sideways! I have to manually rotate all pics and my videos won't even rotate at all! Can anyone help me get my camera back?

    Are you sure you don't have the phone's orientation lock on? You said yourself that you don't have auto-rotate on...

    I'm sorry, I'm new to this.. What do you mean the orientation? I didn't change anything in the settings at all. I never had auto rotate on but the camera itself always rotated when I turned it sideways to fit more in the shot. But the last time I used it that way, it stayed that way. It go back to vertical.

    In the notification shade, or when you pull down from the top, there is a row of icons. Slide it to the left until you get to orientation lock and turn it off. Then go into your camera and try it out

    There isn't anything there that says orientation lock.

    Oh OK.. I never used the screen rotation icon but the camera always rotated when I turned my phone anyway. Now, it just won't rotate back

    I have the same issue; each time I take a photo with my Samsung S4 phone camera, the end product is a horizontal image. I want to be able to take vertical photos. Whenever I turn the phone itself to vertical, and take what appears in the camera lens to be a vertical photo, it still ends up taking a horizontal photo. When I take just one, I can rotate the image, then save and send on email, it is not such a big deal. But taking several images, all shot in vertical position, and then having them all taken as horizontal, is a big pain. Changing the Auto-rotate function in settings makes no difference whatsoever to the camera rotation. Is there an app available to overcome this please?
