    Hi

    For display mode is there a setting in GX7 to automatically rotate a portrait photo to either display horizontally or vertically depending how you rotate the camera?

    The setting auto rotate seems to either display vertical or horizontal depending on the setting. My old G9 can do that. Is there an issue with the accelerometer ?

    Thanks

    Mine does the same thing - I'm assuming there is no accelerometer to sense which way the camera is held?

    I've not been able to do this in any Panasonic. I just rotate the camera to the appropriate position to view landscape or portrait format pics. The camera does have an accelerometer, as it's used for the built-in level indicator.
