Windows Phone 7 camera settings still not saved in upcoming update ?

One of the most annoying bug (or feature?) in Windows Phone 7 is the inability to save the camera settings and prevent them from going back to default every time the camera application is launched (I’ve discussed most of the OS shortcomings in my Windows Phone 7 review here). What happens is that if you go back to the camera app via the hardware back button your settings will be still be “present” but if you re-launch the application by either using the hardware camera button or the camera application icon then the settings will be back to default. Nice feature, right? Well, I decided to see if this was fixed in the newest unlocked emulator image which is essential the next version of the OS (the NoDo update scheduled to be pushed to device this month). Based on past history the emulator image has exactly the same functionalities as the OS image found on the devices so if something works or doesn’t work on it then you can assume that it will be the same on the you handset (the only major difference being the performance: your PC is relatively faster that your handset..). Check out the video after the break (watch it t’il the very end):
