    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 Taking a vertical or square format video is as outdated as the 8 track or beta video.

    Ya, both hands are not always available.

    It is impossible to take steady one handed shots while holding the Iphone sideways.

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