Macro focus questions
I'm not sure I understand macro focus on my phone. How close can I get to a subject and still have it focus? As it stands now it seems to be 6 to 8 inches and I don't get the detail I am expecting. If I place my phone much closer and try to focus I can see the subject focus the shift out of focus immediately. It just doesn't seem right or is this how it is supposed to work? Is a replacement in order or am I doing it wrong?

It's really all in the pinch to zoom feature...an inch off this penny and you get this...
...but zoom into the range of the same size and you get this...
As you can see, the macro functionality is in the zoom, not in the distance in which the picture is taken physically...i had the phone probably 6 inches away.

My pic and vids show up upside down in Win 7 (when shot using the volume + button facing up).
If I play them in a video player they are correct, and if I open pics on photoshop or whatever, they show correctly. It's only in windows itself that they show upside down.
Beamed over the interwebz from my iPhone 4S using Siri.
WOW!!! Thank you for the simple explanation, I had even went to the Apple Genius Bar and they were unable to explain it to me, just said it was normal. I really wish some of this stuff was covered in the User Guide.

I got no solution...and then i walked out of the Apple store, went to the food court, ordered a gyro and started messing with the zoom feature and realized that the quality was there...not in the physical placement of the phone during the actual picture taking.
