Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W1 Digital Camera ?

I was taking lots of scenery pictures this weekend and usually turn my camera on its side to get longer/narrower shots. Well, I decided to take a video and turned that on its side. When I dropped the pictures and video off on my computer it would let me rotate my pictures but not the video. Is there anyway to rotate a video so i don't have to lay on my side to watch it? Thanks.


Answers :

Well, if nothing else, you've learned a valuable lesson. Always shoot videos horizontally. There are some expensive editing programs that can rotate the video but with severe loss of quality.
