How to rotate an image in playback with the EOS 5D Mk II


Vertical images are rotated automatically so they are displayed vertically on the camera's LCD monitor and personal computer instead of horizontally. The setting of this feature can be changed.
1 Select [Auto rotate].
  • Under the [] tab, select [Auto rotate], then press <>.

2 Set the auto rotate.

  • Turn the <> dial to select the setting, then press <>.

Auto rotate will not work with vertical images captured while Auto rotate was [Off]. They will not rotate even if you later switch it to [On] for playback.

  • Immediately after image capture, the vertical image will not be automatically rotated for the image review.
  • If the vertical image is taken while the camera is pointed up or down, the image might not rotate automatically for playback.
  • If the vertical image is not automatically rotated on the personal computer screen, it means the software you are using is unable to rotate the image. Using the provided software is recommended.
