Yup, I work in the Photo-Electronics dept. of a large-chain store. It enables me to play with all the new gadgets as they come out. :-)

It's a little ball inside the camera that, through gravity, rolls to one spot or another to tell the camera which way it's rotated (this is why it doesn't work so well when the camera is pointed straight up or down).

Why the hell does a camera care whether it's oriented sideways?

If you take a picture while the camera is sideways - rotated 90 degrees for a more vertical portrait shot, for example - the camera will sense this. When you're in playback mode, the picture will be displayed right side up instead of on its side, as it would be displayed without an orientation sensor.

If it sounds really bad, then maybe there's some kind of design flaw. I hope that canon won't have to recall all of their sd300 cameras back! eek.
