I've been reading this forum and haven't found this particular question so thought I'd ask.

I haven't owned a vertical camera like the C6 so am wondering how it works for taking vertical (portrait) images? I see where it has a 3mp portrait option but I would prefer to shoot at the 6mp quality.

Can you physically flip the camera like you would a standard camera or can you choose 'portrait' at the 6mp range?

I would use this mostly for stills and just occasional video, so this is an important feature for me.

Thanks

Sure, you can shoot any which way,including with the sideways "gangsta grip" :G. That 3MP "portrait" vertical "convenient" modeisequivalent toa standard 6MP with the sides cropped off, which ends up being 3MP...you could do the same thing by cropping a full 6MP pic on a PC.

Thank you Caelum. One other question I have, are the images square as opposed to a standard rectangle?

The images (video and stills)are all standard (TV) 4:3 "rectangle-ish" and the pixels are square,likethe vast majority of digital cameras.

Check the specs:
