"Help Needed on Auto Orientation of READOUTS"



How in darn blazes do you TURN OFF that irritating Auto Orientation feature of the Readout. It don't mean the images, which you can flick on and off as landscape or porttrait, but I mean the READOUT of camera settings on the new Nikons which turns to portrait mode when you tilt the camera even slightly? I hope Nikon comes up with a solution to DISABLE this mode via a software upgrade download because this is a great boo boo...
Any help appreciated!
Thanks!

I guess Nikon GOOFED on this one because nobody could come up with a solution... Attention anybody from the Nikon labs, please come out with a patch solution or something to TURN OFF your goofy Auto Orientation of the camera setting read outs!
Oh, man...

Patience... you've only allowed a bit over four hours. Not so many of the long-term members even have... which camera did you say? Hmmm... you didn't. And you didn't fill in your profile, either.

Maybe he thinks your crystal ball is better then it really is or it is blinded by the snow storms in the U.S.

See page 220 of the D7000 manual for information about rotating images during playback.

See page 118 of the D3000 manual for information about rotating images during playback.

Of course you can just turn off all image rotation so when you download the images to your computer they do not rotate at all.

I am just glad this forum is limited to only 2 camera models and I have downloaded the PDF manuals. And with Acrobat or Adobe Reader you can let the computer search the manual for you.

Thank your Charles Babbage and Ada Lovelace!

To be fair, I think Raoul is asking about the automatic rotation of the INFO display, probably on the D3000 or D5000.

I don't know of any way to disable this feature.

Thank you, Brian. You hit the problem exactly!
The INFO read out (not images) change orientation when I tilt, like going low to take an angle shot of a model from ground view, etc. Just tilting it very slightly will flip the INFO read out. Very irritating, and there is NO WAY you can DISABLE this feature!
Thanks.
