EOS R5 C Vertical Video Comes Out Sideways

When I try to shoot video by turning the camera vertical the video comes out side ways when viewing on the computer. Is there a reason why it’s happening like that? other canera when I record vertically I’m able to view the video vertically on the computer 

1 ACCEPTED SOLUTION

I saw in the menus that there is a way to rotate the video to portrait orientation as the person stated above.But uploading the media still comes out side ways. To fix the problem I have to rotate the video in editing software 90 degree.when I did research I found that certain file formats will export in portrait when viewing on the computer

Greetings,

Is this what you are looking for?

If not, I'll have to try and reproduce recording something in portrait orientation.

It is my understanding that there is a setting within the R5c menus that allow you to capture video with the camera rotated to a portrait orientation.

I am curious, though.  What other cameras allow you to shoot in a portrait orientation?

I have a Fuji X-S10 and the Canon R5 C. Using the Fuji, imported video is automatically displayed as portrait when shot in that orientation. Not so in the R5 C. I'm also looking for a solution.
