Why do videos sometimes record upside down?

I've had this thing for months and occasionally a video will record upside down. I thought there was no wrong way to hold it. Just now I tested it by recording a couple of vids each way horizontally and they both came out right side up. I'm confused.

There are essentially two ways to hold an iPod touch when recording a video:

1) With the home button down so that the lens on the back is in the upper right corner (vertical).

2) With the home button to the right so that the lens is on the upper left corner of the iPod (ie horizontal).

You are right in that there technically is no incorrect way to hold an iPod touch while recording video as the icons on the screen can rotate to match the orientation you are holding it in. That being said, the resulting videos may come out upside down when they are played back on a computer.

Thanks for replying. I meant playback on the iPod itself was upside down
sometimes. It doesn't happen often, but occasionally.
