90° / 270° EXIF oriantation not supported ?

Why Hero 5 Black does not properly mark photos that are 90° and 270° rotated ? It is full of advanced gyro magneto gps sensors (whose data are saved even in video altough not easily accessible withou third party scripts)... Only 180° rotation is saved in EXIF if Auto option set in Preferences.

In the settings, there is only Up,Down, Auto (correctly would be called Auto @180°). Could there be also Auto@90° ? This is very standard feature in all cameras 10 years back.

What do you mean by this request? You only want one portion with the GPS data? from the camera..

Re: 90° / 270° EXIF oriantation not supported ?

I don't understant your reply. I just want my photos to have proper orientation, when i take "portrait" (+ or - 90° ) (opposite of landscape) photos.  This is common across all cameras and even dumb-phones for 10 years. GoPro  saves  orientation information only in case of 180° orientation. Hero 5 obvivously has simple orientation sensor* (besides precies gyro/magneto/acceleration sensors allowing fancy "telemetry" in videos. ), but it is not used to mark proper rotation of photos except 180° taken photos.

So now when I take bunch of photos I must manually find and select all improperly rotated photos and then lossless-jpg-rotate them in batch. 

 

Actually, it might not  necessarily have simple orientation sensor, it is surely capable of extracting simple orientation** from the precise set of sensors.

 

**simple orientation is term in computer sensors area. It is useful in phones and tables and digital cameras how to rotate screen content  (0,90,180,270).
