Auto rotating pictures on k-x


I saw now that there is an option for auto rotation for the pictures during playback.

However my camera doesn't rotate the photos! Is there another trick that I don't know?

No trick, just a menu setting... it is in the menu: C 3 Number 19.

For picture playback/review, if you select '2' then you can see your 'portrait' framed shots 'full sized' on the cameras screen, but you have to turn the camera for it to be right side up...

Otherwise, the image is reduced in size so that it will fit in the 'landscape' orientation and then is 'auto-rotated' and displayed too small to see IMHO.

Have Fun with that Kx!
