Images appearing upside-down (K-x)

Sometimes my images are appearing upside-down. I'm pretty sure it's only happening in JPEG mode. (I'm not shooting with the camera upside-down).

Are others getting this? What's going on?

I think it is due to polar shift brought about by global warming. When the Antarctic heated up too rapidly it resulted in a topsy-turvey world and even the newest Firmware updates have not completely solved this issue.

Have you disabled auto-rotation in your camera or file browser? Could the camera's orientation sensor be broken?

Dragonflys are capable of flying inverted. Are you sure it wasn't you who was upside down?

Sorry, that's the best I could come up with.

Are they upside down when you upload them to the computer, or only with in-camera display?

Are you sure that's true? We got millions of them, but could never distinguish right side up anyway.

I just said "capable" not that I have ever seen it. They are remarkable creatures, and my favorite insect. (Mostly because they feed on my least favorite insects: mosquitos and flies)

My God, have I got a story for you. And I'll keep it short:

A few years ago, I had 5 acres in Picayune Strand State Park, just west of Big Cypress Swamp/Preserve and east of Naples. (Big Cypress is a huge preserve. What I had was pine scrub territory, totally dry.)

Anyway, you can't visit this area from like May to September, because the mosquitoes will literally eat you ALIVE. But I had to, because I was building what we call a "camp" here, which is simply a cabin.

When I took my exit off Alligator Alley, the main east west route across the state besides Tamiani Trail, if I saw dragon flies, I knew I was cool. If I didn't, I knew I would be suffering big time.

And this was true each and every time without fail.

So I love dragon flies more than ANYONE. Remarkable creatures, and although they look scary, they're really our FRIENDS!!!!

They were only upside down when I uploaded them to the computer.

What program do you use for looking at the images?
Perhaps the program is misinterpreting the orientation info?

is it confusing when in vertical format rotate right against rotate left?

Do you get the inversion only on vertical format or horizontal format also

I think that is what is happening.
