Sure but it's easier still if it can be done by the camera in the first place.
Also if you're on holiday or something you may want to review the footage directly on a tv or mobile device without downloading into an editing package.
Such a simple feature to add - really should be a no brainer.
Yes, I currently do it in editing software but it would be nicer if I didn't have to. As herzog mentioned if you want to just watch some of the footage it's not always convienient to invert it in an editor first. If you have a couple of hours of footage it can also take a while to reencode the video when a simple setting on the camera would let it record the right way up in the first place. Much nicer if I could just put the card in a cardreader in the side of the TV and watch it straight away.
