Cannon G6 - Picture shows as portrait not landscape

\015 Sometimes when I am taking pictures with my Cannon Powershot G6 it randomly chooses to take the picture in portait mode (ie vertical) even though the camera is being held horizontally. Any ideas?\015

Answers :

Sounds like an oversensitive autorotate sensor. Recommend holding the camera very steady when taking a picture. If it still acts up, recommend just turning the sensor off, as you can use just about any photo editing software to rotate your photos if desired.

My Sony A700 works ok in the P,A,S and M modes. However when set in Auto mode the lcd shows Portrait. When in Portrait it shows Portrait. When in Landscape the lcd shows Portrait. When in Macro it shows Manual.When in Sports action it show Manual. In Sunset it shows Nightime. It also shows Nightime in both the Nightime and Memory Recall modes.
