    I understand that the first generation Pannys don't have some kind of sensor that tags photos taken in portrait (vertical) camera position. Still, is there a way to make PP editors recognize portrait (vertical) photos?

    If you rotate the JPEGs in camera, all editors will recognize it. Otherwise, it depends on the editor. There's no general way to it for RAW.

    The issue isn't 1st vs. 2nd generation. The only Panasonic model with an orientation sensor is the GX1. For all other Panasonics, the orientation is determined using the OIS mechanism in the lens. If the lens lacks OIS (e.g. the 20/1.7), no orientation is recorded and everything ends up in landscape mode.

    That answered a question I have had with my G3 and 14mm, 20mm That makes sense.... the lens must have OIS to have this feature.... Still think it lamo...... All my DSLRs I had, had it, with or without any kind of image stabilizing.

    I see. That's why some of the photos (presumably taken with my 14-42mm) were correctly oriented while others (presumably taken with my 20mm) were not.

    Thanks!
