how to set up a camera

i want to know if there is a tutorial or if someone has a demo on how to setup a camera for a side scrolling game.i tried parenting the camera to the main character,but it’s annoying to see the camera turn when the character turns, then you end up looking the game on the wrong side(i hope you get what i’m saying LOL).please help or let me know of any tutorials. thanx :smiley:

I hope this helps :smiley:
