    My pics done with the E-P1 are automatically rotated when shown on the notebook´s monitor via the SD-slot. I use the Faststone Image viewer for this.
    With a friends E-PL2 this does not happen on my notebook.
    With both this does not happen when using the Windows programm for showing the pics.
    Is this caused by the different cameras or the programm or both?

    It's the camera, not the program. The E-PL2, being the more economical "Lite" version, has no orientation sensor. This is why the E-PL2 also does not come with the very useful Level Gauge which is standard in all the E-Px PENs and newer E-System DSLRs.
