XS40HS: Camera Orientation Setting


After many years of normal use, my camera has somehow changed the "camera orientation" setting from landscape to portrait. All of my photos are now rotated 90 deg. when imported into iPhoto. I can rotate them back but when I import those photos into a page layout program, they roate again to portrait mode.


What did I do to cause this and how can I undo it. Thank you.



Check in your menu settings Playback -> if you have Auto Rotate set to Off...if it is off the images will appear nd playback as shot, landscape or portrait

Thank you John, but that didn't solve my issue. Perhaps I need to be clearer.


Page 191 of the Owners Guide shows the items displayed on the screen. #2 Camera orientation is my issue. I need the oreintation arrow to point "up" as displayed, not to the left as it is now set on my camera. How did I change that and how do I get it back? Other than this screen shot I can find NO reference to "camera orientation" in the OG or other support docs.
