Sort of, there are accelerometers that measure the strength of the gravitation in X, Y and Z direction and thus can calculate the orientation of the camera body in relation to the gravitational field. But those sensors do not rattle.
Hmmm. One would think a simple mechanical orientation switch with a moving weight of some sort would be easier.
