Android camera image rotation

Does OpenCV support different device orientations (i.e. portrait and lanscape etc.) on Android?

I am capturing camera frames on the native side. If the device orientation is not landscape, the images are rotated. Is there a way to fix the rotation without manually rotating the captured image?

I had a rotation issue with my Samsung Galaxy S3 - I had to use


to correct the problem - I think when I googled the issue it was a hardware setting on the camera

You are right, but I need to set this from native code, not from Java side.

Could you invoke this method via the JNI?

@matt.hammer Where did you place this line of code???

In Java with the SDK, right after: Camera camera =; My JNI is rusty, but I think you could make this call with it.

@matt.hammer I am using the JavaCameraView, there is no call to, any suggestions? I also have the S3 and have been frustrated with that line of code not actually changing the orientation

@arsalank2 Did you find a solution?

@jameo have you got a solution? I had tried to cast the JavaCameraView and reached to lines, but I still failed to rotate the view by adding "camera.setDisplayOrientation(90);" @matt.hammer could you tell me more about this?

Anyone ever figure this out? There seems to not be a solution anywhere on the internet for this. cam.setDisplayOrientation(90) simply doesn't work. Any other solutions out there rely on pixel manipulations that vastly degrade the framerate....
