Is there a way to take selfies where the photo is not a mirror image?
I always looked at the cellphone way of reversing the image as a poor excuse for photography.  When the P2 camera turns 180 degrees to tak a photo of the operator, Why is that photo reversed?

Hi, papabri48. Thanks for reaching out! In Selfied Mode, when the DJI Pocket 2 is used by itself or when it is connected with a mobile phone, the picture displayed by the image transmission is a mirrored display, and the film is a mirrored picture. There are no current options to change the orientation of the selfie photo as of the time being.

I know the image is mirrored, buy WHY?

When a camera faces any given direction, the image it sees is not that way.  The P2 is intentionally programmed to mirror the image, so that mode should be available to turn OFF.  If I’m taking a video of myself, I want the background to be the same as if the viewer is there, at arm’s length away, not as some cell phone does it.

The mirrored selfie is just junk! Anytime there are written words in the image - they are backwards and highly distracting. Fix this DJI!

Agree!  Any camera, facing any direction, takes an image of what is in front of it.  A “selfie” is a creation of old cell phone technology.  With new technology in the Pocket 2, DJI created a flip of the image to unexplainedly recreate this OLD technology of cell phones.  That “feature” SHOULD BE SOMETHING YOU CAN TURM OFF.....OFF!  I don’t want a mirror image if I wish to take a photo of myself!  Fix it!

Using the Mimo app's mirror button you can unmirror the display.  But oddly, this doesn't unmirror what is stored when you take the photo.  I can see why the display is mirrored (you turn the camera in the direction of what is displayed, which is logical) but I can't see any reason why when you've unmirrored the display, it's not stored the way you saw it displayed.  Mildly annoying that you have to use another app to reverse it afterwards, but still, they could improve on it, I would have thought.

Hi there. I also don't like the mirror mode. At first all the videos look awkward, and I couldn't find the reason why. Later I saw everything was in mirror. Later in post I invert the videos... But it's unnecessary. Even my cheap cellular phone can turn mirror mode on and off. Please fix this DJI, make it an option, not an obligation.

I believe if you steer the gimbal head into selfie mode, rather than pressing the button, you can achieve the result you want.

The akwartd thing, now I've found I was doing the wrong thing, not the camera... well, both... in video mode, in the pocket screen, shows the image mirrored... so later in post I mirrored the image, believing I was doing the right thing. It turns out, I was not. On the screen of the camera and in the mimo app , the image is mirrored, but it records normal... So yesterday in post, I was the one mirroring the video and noticed today. But why it shows the image mirrored and records correct... Strange. I'm new with the DJI Pocket 2... so I'm still learning. Thank you

I don't understand either why photos are mirrored but videos not. I understand it is mirror when taking photo but it also saves the image as mirror. Thank god this not affecting videos.

It is actually pain that we need to use joystick or wheel to turn the camera to point ourselves and not use the "selfie mode". This is the only way to take selfie that it is not mirror image saved.

I can imagine someone who took 500 pictures on holiday trip and noticing later that saved images are all mirrors..
