    How would a camera decide what direction your are pointing your cam at? I know when you have had a movement towards a certain direction, but standing still, a built in compass?

      (I dont know how electrical compasses work…)

        teensy-weensy magnetic compass driven by software… same thing as they have in car rearview mirrors these days. Picks up magnetic field and adjusts depending on your location (via GPS)… since magnetic field doesn’t always run exactly north/south.

    If it leaked I’m not interested. A waterproof camera must NOT leak!
