LCD View Tilt

I noticed on my K-7 that if I turned the camera the picture on the LCD would turn, but on my K-5 I noticed that the picture always turned up and thats it. Even if the photo is taken in a side view it dosen't stay in the side view..
Is there a way to set the K-5 so it does the same as the K-7?

Not at the moment. We hope for the firmware. You can rotate the picture, as was in K20D.

Glad to hear that I am not the only one that could not figure out to get the image to automatically tilt like it does with my K-7. Wheewww... Looked up and down the manual and was about to post the same question as Fl Gulfer until I saw this thread.

Thanks for the answer Ron!
