HTC EVO 4G front-facing camera test: good, but it records a mirror image

,----[ Quote ]
| Food for thought when you’re using that HTC 
| EVO 4G front-facing camera: it records 
| everything backwards. I first noticed 
| someone mention that the camera recorded 
| “backwards” but I thought they were just 
| experiencing an error because of the Qik 
| app. Then today I discovered that the 
| “problem” is indeed the 1.3 megapixel camera 
| at the front of the phone. Take a look at 
| this test video I shot using the EVO.
