Great, I'm glad you got it working! That is odd, I'm not sure why it would be doing that. Maybe selecting to invert the horizontal camera rotation would fix it in the game camera settings? For me the A pans to the left and the D to the right and my W and S move the camera forward and back. Lol I just realized that I can move around the entire room with the camera while taking a photo, I thought the W and S were zooming in and out. But I couldn't find anything in the PhotoCamera.ini or Camera.ini files that could be causing the inversion. Maybe deleting the cache files again and restarting the game will fix it?
I don't know how to clear cache, the weird thing is that in the cinematic mode i dont have this inverted thing with S and D

@WriteToLive Oh my goodness! ^_^ After months and months of waiting, and then eventually giving up on EA's ability to get this fixed, YOU'VE SOLVED IT! Thank you so much for sharing this! I too am having issues with A + D being inverted, A moving me to the right, and D to the left, but I can live with that because you found a way to bring back the feature that I was most excited to always use! Thank you so much!

@ConyoK @xjfo411x That's so odd though that the controls are inverted for those two keys. The only thing I can think of that might make it different is if you're using the Sims 3 vs Sims 4 camera (although I doubt that) or if you inverted the vertical or horizontal camera rotational. I don't have the issue, but I do have my vertical camera rotation inverted. I did mess with other settings in the Camera.ini, but it was mainly to slow down the camera movement speed and the rotational distance. But maybe I did change something else that affected it. Or a keyboard layout issue? It's odd that it only affects the photo camera view though. I'll keep looking through the .ini files to see if I may have changed something else that could have affected that. Maybe try inverting the horizontal camera controls in the game camera settings and see if that helps?
@WriteToLive I must congratulate you on your fine discovery and thank you for sharing it here with us! Good show!
I've done the changes to the .ini file and the tripod is finally worth using once more! Absolutely marvelous!
I do suffer from the same problem as mentioned earlier though, namely the inversion of the horizontal camera keys. In addition, I found that the slider underneath the camera controls stops functioning as well (the one that lets you rotate and orbit the camera around the subject). This, however, is all completely acceptable and still a great workaround for this most annoying "bug". For reference, I use the Sims 4 camera and do not have any inversion enabled in options.
And what a massive slap in the face this is for the team over at EA! These people are so shamefully incompetent that they can't even tweak existing settings in their own software! If I were them right now, I'd die of embarrassment like a sim...
@WriteToLiveMAJOR PROPS. Thank you for helping this issue! I also have the issue where the A and D buttons are reversed, but the core functionality is there!
