Add the option to flip the camera (normal rather than mirror-image) to show hard copy documents the right way round
Be able to choose the camera mode so it gives you mirror image (which is the default), or flip it to 'normal' view so that if you have to make reference to a hard copy document or a whiteboard behind you, the writing isn't backwards!
So unfortunate that there isn't a setting that can be changed by the user. I am moving all my meetings over to Zoom. I teach lettering and I need to see my image non-mirrored. My clients like Teams, but I'm talking them out of using it.
I'm very disappointed for this annoyance: I had to wait 1 month to receive my purchase and I now fill like having wasted my money! It's really incredible that Microsoft doesn't fix this problem that has been reported by so many users. Is really this a the way Microsoft cares its users?
Why hasn't this been fixed yet? Is it really that difficult? It is making teachers jobs much more difficult for no apparent reason.

I would like to be able to use a lightboard to educate my students this fall. In order to do this in real time I would need the ability to mirror the image that my students see. In the past I have done this in post-production for recorded videos, but with virtual learning it would be nice to use this technology in real time.
WHY IS IT BACKWARDS!!!! YOU DON"T MR TO DOWNLOAD 3RD PARTY SOFTWARE, FIX YOUR S#!*

Please add a setting to turn off the image mirror so we can use Teams for teaching.

My school would like to use Teams in conjunction with a document camera for online learning in these crazy Covid times. We like Teams better than Zoom in many areas. However, when we try to use our newest ELMO camera, the image is mirrored in Teams. This is a major problem because we have some students online and some in-person. This strange mirroring feature means that the in-person students will not be able to read anything. Zoom allows mirroring to be turned off. It’s very frustrating that we already pay for Office365 but we will now need to pay for Zoom simply because of this issue.

It's amazing to me that a company with as long a history in software development would miss such an obvious user interface option. Zoom has it. Webex has it. Skype has it. Why is Microsoft always playing catch up?
The mirrored selfie view causes more confusion and stress than it avoids. This is especially true when presenting documents and diagrams. Please give Teams users the option to turn Mirrored camera on and off.
I'm a teacher and my district (Knox County Schools, Knoxville, TN) is using Microsoft Teams to teach our virtual learners this year. I need to be able to use my white board behind me to write on, and it's very difficult to do when the camera is mirrored. I need to be able to see what my students are seeing. Thank you.
Catch up to Zoom faster please

This option should be readily available within Teams as it is in other group working applications (eg, Zoom). In fact, adjustments to conference set ups should be open to users as a matter of course, even if they are buried under a couple of layers, so that people who have specific needs can tailor the application to their own requirements.
I am piping OBS output to a virtual camera. This way, a professional looking streaming experience can be achieved (think multiple cameras and screen captures modified by all sorts of filters). That filliped image is annoying.
Maybe this is me being having more experience with Unix-like systems and therefor not being used to the Microsoft way of handling thing but assuming that your default user is too dumb to realize that a webcam is not a mirror is an odd philosophy.
It's ridiculous that this does not work!
My ATEM switcher can handle multiple sources, including an external DSLR, and appear as a webcam to Teams. So, Teams mirrors the image as if it were a built-in webcam. While manageable for my own reflection, it's annoying to have to see the other sources (such as a laptop
running my PowerPoint presentation) also mirrored. Even though I know the output will be normal to the audience, I have to look at the Teams window image with mirrored PowerPoint text. It's annoying we can't turn off that 'feature' in Teams.
