Cameras these days record the orientation of the camera when you take a shot, and write this into EXIF which is embedded into the photo. There seems to be a new way in which the 40D does it.
If anyone has attempted to import from 40D into Lightroom, they might notice that all the images are rotated 180%.
Windows picks up the correct way up, yet Lightroom simply doesn’t.
I hope Adobe will be quick to remedy this problem, as well as update the RAW converter to accommodate the 40D
Having a further look into it – I noticed this only occurs when you connect the camera directly to the computer, as opposed to extract the CF, and using it within a reader.
Also windows didn’t automatically rotate the photos when looking at them through explorer, so possibly this is a Windows Vista problem, and not Lightroom.
If anyone in XP or OSX can reproduce this – do post.
After trying this with Lightroom 1.3 – the issue still persists.
Not fixed yet.
