Normally when I shoot in portrait orientation, the D800 automatically rotates the image so that it is right side up when I am viewing my camera like this. That's nicely laid out and well designed and all. The problem is, I am wasting all this screen. If it was rotated the other way, I could turn the camera and see a much bigger view of my image. I can ask the camera to not rotate images, by going to my Playback menu and saying Rotate tall: Off.
Now, the image will remain tagged as a portrait-oriented image, so it will still come into my image editor correctly. But when I go into Playback mode, it's now filling the whole screen in this direction, so I can rotate the camera to be able to see the whole thing. So this is a nice way of getting a bigger view of portrait-oriented images.
