'CamRotate' Gives You More Control Over How Your Camera Interface Rotates
If you’d like to have more control over your Camera interface and how it behaves with rotation, then you’ve come to the right place. With a new free jailbreak tweak called CamRotate by iOS developer PoomSmart, you will gain more control over how and when the Camera interface rotates.
CamRotate adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can configure the tweak's preferences:
The tweak can be enabled or disabled at any time via the toggle switch at the top of the preferences. Under that, users will find the meat of the tweak’s preferences. CamRotate has a dynamic preferences pane where some of the setting cells appear and disappear depending on the positioning of the various switches. When the tweak is enabled, all of the preferences appear, on the other hand when the tweak is disabled, all of the preferences disappear.
The first option allows you to lock the orientation of the Camera interface to anything you would like. You have the choice between portrait, portrait upside down, landscape left, or landscape right. You will also find an option for syncing to the orientation of the Camera interface, which lets you sync the orientation of the Camera interface with the locked orientation of your iOS device so your Camera interface can't auto-rotate when you have the rotation lock on.
The last feature of the tweak that you will find is the ability to change the rotation style of changing the camera interface orientation. You can choose between Default, or iPad-like.
It seems like the tweak might be useful for those that don't like the Camera application rotating on them automatically. If you would like to give the tweak a shot, you will find CamRotate in Cydia's BigBoss repository for free. CamRotate works on iOS 5.0 and later.
Requirements: iOS 5.0+

Cook tweak. I wish there were an option to force (and record in) landscape no matter which way the phone was oriented. This would be quite helpful to get TV friendly 16:9 landscape video while being able to hold the phone in a more comfortable portrait position.
