Shooting with the Canon Rebel T3i (600D and Kiss X5) details the features, controls, and options in the Canon Rebel T3i camera. Author Ben Long provides an overview of a digital single lens reflex (SLR) camera and reviews the Canon Rebel T3i camera's components and basics of operation, including changing lenses, navigating the menus, shooting in Auto mode, and reviewing and managing photos on the camera’s LCD screen. The course also covers white balance options, advanced metering and autofocus controls, flash, and shooting HD video, and includes a chapter on sensor and camera maintenance.
Your camera includes an orientation sensor inside that lets it figure out if you're shooting in Portrait or Landscape orientation. Your camera records the orientation of your shot and the metadata for each image. When you view the images on the back of your camera or in an image editing program, the image should appear rotated correctly. Sometimes though, the camera's rotation sensor gets confused and the proper rotation doesn't get recorded with the image. To fix this, you can rotate images in camera. This rotation will actually change the rotation tag that gets stored with the image so that images will appear correctly rotated in your image editing application on your computer.
If I go into Playback mode and see that an image is rotated incorrectly, I can simply go to the menu and here in the first Playback menu is the Rotate command. I open that up and it says that Set will rotate the image, so I can just start spinning it around until I get it the way that I want. When I am done I can hit the menu button to go back and now when I am in Playback mode looking at that image, I see that it's rotated correctly.
