When I take a picture with my WP I can get a lot of very cool EXIF data with it, such as GPS location, elevation, etc., but I don't get compass. Am I missing something?
Here is link to see EXIF data:

I think adding a compass direction in the EXIF data can be a little tricky and false most of the times as it might give false reading if you don't do the infinity 8wave thing.

I would suggest talking to a developer to include such a feature in the future. like (RiseUpGames) the developer of the amazing ProShot lens, he's very active in this forums (search the Lumia920 forum to find him.)

I understand that occasionally the "8wave thing" (I like the way you describe it) needs to be done, but if the Windows Phone compass is false MOST of the time, then that needs to be fixed. Inexcusable! iPhones already include compass in EXIF, and in my experience it is usually accurate when you consider the phones field of view.
Also, I think this needs to be done to the native Windows Phone camera, without requiring an app.

I didn't mean the compass wasn't capable of doing accurate readings , I just meant it opens the way for false readings , There's a feature requests section in Windowsphone.com (request a feature) you can add this to that list.
