I have an S95

I am finding the image when I take the shot is correct on the screen but when uploaded it the jpeg many times is sideways. Is there a way to cancel this orientation in the camera. I think my problem occurs as I set the image to a 1:1 ratio usually when taking photos of my wife's art which are square canvas's. I have seen this occur with 4:3 as well though.

The software program you are using to view the image should have an option to rotate the image.
Simple programs usually have only 90degree rotation; others offer rotation by any degree.

Also, in printing, the printing program should have a rotation option.

That's not a problem I just want the camera to save it with the orientation that was on the screen. I was hoping there was a setting I am not aware of to turn it off.

Software rotations will let you look at it correctly but if I have a large number of shots its a PIA. I take multiple images and bracket each.

It's going to depend on what application you use to view the image. Windows, and many Microsoft utilities among others, don't support the "orientation flag" in EXIF, which records which corner should be considered "down" in viewing the image. Or you could use the "Rotation" feature in the camera (p. 141 of the manual) to change the image orientation.

Thanks, Not sure the rotation feature in the camera will help if its the software not reading the EXIF. The thing is the problem occurs most when using DPP which I would have thought being a Canon software wouldn't have the problem.

I actually don't go back and look at the image on the camera, just upload them. But the image I see after each bracket always has the correct orientation.

I will maybe go back and load some files into the camera where I can see the problem on DPP then look at them in camera and see if they are shown correctly. If they are its a DPP bug.

Are you shooting JPEG or RAW+JPEG? I wouldn't expect it to be a DPP bug; my version works fine with the JPEGs from my A630, A1300, SD990, SX1 and SX230. You could always upgrade to the latest version though.

Using Raw + Jpeg. One thing I discovered this a.m. is that if I open one of the jpeg images using the generic windows photo viewer opens it correctly whereas the 2 programs I use DPP (3.11.31, the latest I believe) and Fastone both show it on its side.

I have posted an image on my flickr site not sure if this will help someone look at the exif info but it posts on its side on Flickr.

Interesting. The manual says only 4:3 is available in RAW+JPEG. How are you orienting the camera in shooting? It may just not record orientation on a square image, assuming that you'd hold the camera in standard "Landscape" orientation when in 1:1. Or are you looking vertically down at the subject (in which case, the orientation sensor can't function)?

The camera is set to 1:1 and I get the raw + jpeg images. I am taking photos of art by either tripod or manual held and always landscape of the paintings on the floor. So it would appear that the orientation sensor should not be working which means by default I should not be getting an image on its side.

I wonder if between shots, if hand held, which most are when the photo is for library archiving and I reorient the camera looking straight ahead between shots if it is somehow fooling the sensor? I am just grasping here. Something is happening because its probably about 1 out of 4 shots that this happens on.

By "can't function" I don't mean that it won't record an orientation, but that if you're off by even a degree or so, you won't necessarily see the orientation you'd expect. And that sounds like what you're seeing. Pity there isn't room to put a bubble level on the back of the camera while you're shooting.
