Why would anyone ever want to use a 8 mega pixel camera or 1080p capture device for vertical photos or video. I get it, maybe crop a photo to be used as a screen saver on the Iphone but that is only reason I can think of.

Holding the phone horizontally is a terrible fix and almost impossible not to shake and cause blurry photos or video. Then to have to dbl tap the screen just to get a widescreen video is a joke. Does anyone even own a square monitor or tv anymore? Taking a vertical or square format video is as outdated as the 8 track or beta video.

With hard-hitting questions of substance like this, your career as an investigative journalist is sure to take off any day now. :rolleyes:

Seriously, you never take pictures of anything tall?

Full length Portrait shot......... like if you wanted to capture the entirety of someone's halloween costume without having to step back ten feet.
