Default Lossless Rotation in Camera?

From what I understand (unless you use some special software) when you rotate an image in a program such as Windows Picture Viewer there is some slight loss of quality.

Do you know if rotating an image in the Fuji HS20 camera itself also causes a loss of qualty?

Should I be using a special software to rotate my images? How significant is the loss of quality?

The loss you speak of is not the camera but the format (jpg) itself. Jpg is considered a lossy format. You can read all about it here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JPEG

So close to 0, that you can rotate it 100 times and not see the difference !
Just save pictures in higher quality (less compression) and everything is fine.
Do not care about Jpeg so much !

you shouldnt be worried about rotating pictures, you should be more worried about keeping the data intact for the long run. "jpeg corruption"
