Considering that I sincerely thought that "unchecking the auto-rotation option" was a flaky idea, I just tried it today.... what the heck, right?

Well, portrait shots now rotate to fill the screen if I rotate the body.

I apologize for the thought!

It rotates when you tilt the camera?? When I uncheck this option, it just shows portrait pictures sideways.

Damnit I'm going to check this again... I was under the impression that if I had the body horizontal, that the portrait would be vertical (so a lot of black space on the sides). Then if I rotated the body 90 degrees, the portrait would then "rotate" to fill the screen.

Now I can't remember what I did, but the info on the screen did rotate (settings), so I thought it did the same for the playbacks...

Ah yes, same here. When I tilt the camera it rotates the info-screen. But it doesn't do this when playing back pictures.

I agree, this is strange. The functionality is there, just not applied consistently.
