This may be a processing question I don't know. But I am using the video cord that cam with my 50D and got it plugged in to a separate monitor from my 50D. When I shoot horizontal it rightfully shows up as horizontal on the separate monitor. But when I shoot vertical the image is still horizontal on the monitor. I went to the camera menu and auto rotate is selected but I have to manually go in to the camera menu and rotate it vertical for it to show on the monitor as vertical. Anyone know how to make the vertical images automatically flip vertical on the monitor, for when I shoot portraits?

Thanks.

Do you have rotate in camera set as well, not just rotate in computer?

Yes, images in camera rotate perfect every time, just no rotation at all when I use a separate monitor to view my shooting.

Since you write you are using the video cable that was delivered with your 50D, I presume you are using a composite video connection, not HDMI, right? Have you tried the same thing via HDMI, just to see if it makes a difference? You may not have a HDMI monitor you like to drag along, but for a test it will suffice.

Well, I don't use a computer, I hook directly up from camera to monitor so my camera don't have a hdmi connection. I have hooked it up to the tv and same result.

Why not just use EOS Utility and a laptop instead?

Well, the 50D does support HDMI. That's why I wondered if you had tried that as an alternative. It seems you've not.

Laptop screen is too small and I don't want to store them on a laptop directly from the shoot.

I just want to have my big LCD monitor set up hooked directly to the camera and that is it, much easier. In this day and age there has to be a way to make the vertical image rotate to vertical on the monitor as it does the camera.

I would think so. I could try this with one of my cameras and monitors, but I don't have any 50D, so it may not proove to much, I'm afraid.

Well, if it works on yours then maybe there is a setting somewhere I missed that would fix mine. Thank you.
