You need some Horizon in your life .
"Horizon lets you capture horizontal videos and photos no matter how you hold your device. Hold it upright, sideways or even keep rotating it while capturing, your captured moment will always stay horizontal! "
I envy you. If I wanted to record something from my point of view I need to use my Horizon app and put my phone in my chest pocket.
People seriously need to know about Horizon:
It doesn't care about the orientation of your phone, it WILL record in widescreen.
Horizon does that:
However, if you care enough about shooting horizontally to download an app, you probably don't need it in the first place.
Why are people celebrating this atrocity! The idiots have won!
Truly a sad day in technology... a sad day indeed.
Why not integrate the "Horizon" app into both <em>link</em>:Android and <em>link</em>:iOS, simply removing the option to film in portrait and force landscape at all times.
For you guys heading out, please take horizontal videos. Use Horizon Camera app or something to make it easy. If something breaks out, don't subject future generations to shitty vertical videos.
The main problem is that the person who would download and use this is the same person that never would have had the problem to begin with. This needs to be a stock feature for the camera.
It's 2019, and people still haven't learned to turn their phone sideways, or install some free app like horizon that fixes the issue for these idiots.
Not everyone is glued to their phone 24/7, some of us actually interact with the public when we're not home, and have a desktop/laptop to use when we are home.
Like this app?
And i think Google camera does it automatically.
Horizon camera does this using a software method
You can keep turning it round and round and it should do a decent job of keeping the orientations correct
For future reference there's an app which prevents this: Horizon Camera
For the majority OS
For the other one
Someone will sort this out for you, have faith.
There is an app that allows you to always shoot in landscape mode no matter what orientation you hold your phone. It's on both Apple as well as
Check out the app Horizon on Android and iOS. It lets you film horizontal if you hold your phone vertical, and it will even correct the picture while you rotate your phone.
Edit 2, added iOS
I miss the days when Google's camera app would pop up a reminder when you were filming something vertically. That lasted about a week, and then they removed it due to outcry from vertical video heathens.
Personally, I try to use the Horizon app if I'm filming something. It keeps your video horizontal no matter what angle you're holding your phone.
No biggie, as long as acknowledge when you make an error, that's the important thing.
Btw I did google for such a thing and there is one app I know of that will do something like this, it's called Horizon Camera it will kind of do what I want however, it only crops the vertical image into a tiny window of the camera's actual resolution so it doesn't look very good and unless you pay, it'll leave an annoying watermark in the bottom left corner, plus I have an LG G4 and the stock camera app is pretty good, whereas horizon is noticably slower and is kinda lacking in options, not to mention if you read the reviews people have had all kinds of other problems such as crashing, so I wouldn't recommend it.
Till er som inte kan filma som folk.ska faan kasta min mobil i golvet bara för att visa hur arg jag är ;)
The same sensor that governs auto-rotation could be used for this, but my guess is that there were 2 solutions/problems:
I think the reason it's not popular yet is because it has momentum in the sense that people are happy enough with and used to the simple movie recording solution - it is an established thing and so less prone to change. But for Android there's this app (Horizon).

Horizon Camera app. Shoot horizontal videos no matter which way you hold your phone.
The biggest problem is trying to guess user intention, whether he actually wants vertical or horizontal. This is specially hard when the camera is moving while taking picture. The camera itself is equipped with sensor to detect vertical or horizontal, and it can digitally reorient itself.
There are tons of apps that force the camera to behave one way or another.
here is an example: always horizontal. regardless how you hold your camera.
Well, there's the Horizon camera. But now it won't matter anymore. We will sooner see vertical TVs than this habit going away, now that it's being enabled like this.
A good optical zoom camera. (I don't see a need for ultra-wide.)
A compass that always works correctly. (We've been doing it for thousands of years...)
GPS that works reliably in a city.
Google Duplex for making appointments.
An Assistant that will somehow force me to do all the things on my to-do list.
Auto-leveling camera software (like Horizon) built into every phone and turned on by default when taking video, so people don't have an excuse for taking vertical videos.
There was an app for that, it would automatically convert any vertical video to horizontal. I actually used it for a bit but this was a few years ago
Edit it's still available [link]
Beautiful! Can we please see the entire layout run? Tracking the train as it goes around your entire layout.
And for goodness sake, please HOLD THE PHONE HORIZONTALLY WHEN TAKING VIDEO!
There are apps for that, where you can hold the phone vertically and it will always record horizontally.
I installed the full version of this on my mom's phone. It solves the problem by using the sensors on the phone to ALWAYS capture horizontal no matter how the phone is held. I deleted the stock app and changed the icon. ��[link]
I'm probably late to the party but Horizon Camera does something like that. It's worth checking it out. The quality of the results depends heavily on the accuracy of your device's sensors.
There's an app called Horizon, and it always takes a video (or photo) horizontally, regardless of phone's orientation. It should be built-in in every phone.
Nice. I haven't gotten a chance to try it out very much yet.
You may want to try out Horizon. It automatically levels your video, so you can hold your phone at any angle and the video still lines up to the horizon. (You do lose some of your field of view, but it's a trade-off.)
I'm really curious how well it works with the Pixel's stabilization. Last summer, I used it to take some videos while going up and down some Colorado mountain roads (put my Nexus 5 in my car's phone holder) and it turned out ok - kinda bumpy, and there was a lot of jello-effect. I'd imagine it would be much better on the Pixel.
works in the horizon camera app. But maybe that's the accelerometer? is there a difference in this sense?
edit: also the spec sheet does mention '3D G-Sensor'. I thought that was the gyro?
It crops your portrait sensor to landscape so you lose all those pixels but at least you can hold it vertical but shoot horizontal. As an added bonus, it can stabilise the video too
Another possible N issue: I've tried two apps to record horizontal video with the phone held vertically.
Horizontal Camera: [link]
Both appeared to work but the resulting video was a still frame.
Anyone want to check whether they're seeing the same? Or can someone who's still on MM check whether they work there?
While we wait for your idea to become a reality, Horizon Camera is a valid alternative, but if you keep the phone vertical quality is way lower than it could be
Everyone should get this app to save themselves the embarrassment of taking vertical video, if holding your phone sideways is just too much to ask. (Don't know if there's an iPhone version.)
Exists already - though of course it's a third party app, not a preinstalled one.
You mean this?
"Capture horizontal videos & photos no matter how you hold your device." For Android users.
There is, it's called horizon. [link]
Sounds like what Horizon Camera does all these years
There is hope [link]
Nu tar du och laddar hem [link] ögonaböj!
Actually pretty cool.
You'd be surprised, it's already a thing but it's not advertised very well.
There are Aps for that
It exists as an app already. Horizon Camera.
Horizon Camera is exactly what you're looking for! Now we just have to make it mandatory for everyone. :)
Horizon - Captures videos/photos horizontally even if you keep rotating screen orientation while recording video.
Horizon is one, but the video quality won't be as good as if you took a standard video horizontally.
A few others I use daily;
Horizon records in landscape mode no matter how you hold your phone. Vertical Video Syndrome can by cured with this app. Spread the word.
Pushbullet has browser extensions for Chrome and Firefox that you can push links, texts, or a few other things to from any device. And you can sms from your desktop without looking at your phone which is cool. A little notif window will pop up on the lower left of the your monitor.
If your phone has an IR sensor, download AnyMote Smart Remote. Turns your phone into a remote for almost anything. No joke. Its pretty awesome and its free. You can purchase pro for more features. You might not use it a lot, but it does come in handy.
Tunity lets you listen to whatever you're watching on TV on your phone. You open the app, point it at the TV, and it will sync up the audio. It's amazing. It works with almost every major network and cable channel.
Last but not least... get free apps by taking a 15 second surveys. Seriously. Google Rewards isn't really advertized, but you answer a few questions and get real money to use in the play store. Each survey is worth anywhere between $0.20 - $1.15 and you'll get one or two a day on average. My Play Store balance is like $5.75. I'll purchase the pro version of apps if I really like them with that money.
THIS app should be forced on all smartphones.
Vertical video? Really?
BTW, awesome guitar slayer.
Then this app is for you
Try Horizon Camera app.
Check out "Horizon Camera"
[link] Problem solved.
Purchase Horizon and ALWAYS. VIDEO. HORIZONTALLY.
No need! This camera app takes care if aspect ratio for ya
Just searched the exact name.
As a quick review, this app is perfectly reliable and looks great as a finished video.
Found this video in the previous thread:
I love this idea and wish it were an option (enabled by default) on the stock camera app.
Looks like it's available for android as well. I'm gonna install it and try it out!
There's an app for that
Way ahead of you. There might even be one for the iPhart.
There's an app for that. [link]
Check out Horizon Camera if you want to avoid future shame!
And for Android [link]
Like this? [link]
To fix this, an app like this: [link]
Needs to be integrated to Bambuser or something....
This is possible, but there's a caveat. Many smartphone cameras, even cheaper ones, can record video at 4K resolution, so 3840x2160. Hold the phone vertically and we get 2160x3840.
Let's use a random wallpaper image with this resolution as an example. Pretend that this is a video:
We could simply crop it to 1920x1080 (or 1080p), which is still the most common video resolution on the Internet:
This can be done after the video has been recorded - or it could be done while the video is being recorded. Manufacturers aren't doing it, because it would ignore most of the camera sensor, reducing brightness and clarity of the video while also zooming in a lot.
There are however third party apps that do this, like this one:
This particular app goes even further and creates a level image or video even if the phone is held at an angle, which I would recommend not to use unless you are in extreme circumstances, since it reduces image quality by quite a lot. The locked mode is the most sensible of the lot. Some reviewers seem to not understand the principle I laid out above and complain that it can't record at more than 1080p, despite this being close to the upper theoretical limit with 4K camera sensors held in a vertical orientation.
There’s an Android app for this already.
This app does it. Although I haven't used it in a while.
This app is fantastic Horizon Camera. Hold your camera in any orientation you want, video (and stills) are great.
[link] this app solves the issue.
I have it installed and working on my android phone (Pixel):
They can figure it out. It’s not 1960
Edit: someone has
You can do that: Horizon.
This App was made just for you ;)
Oh but there is.....
This app is for you
Horizon does this.
It's called Horizon. I can't vouch for it, but here it is: [link]
I guess they forgot about Horizon in the 22nd(25th?) century
I recommend using Horizon Camera. Landscape videos no matter which way you hold your phone.
Well... this is a thing...
I remember an app that can do that.
This you mean [link]
Clearly you want this app then. Personally I'd rather have the full resolution [link]
Or just install this.
Horizon does exactly this.
The phone should auto add black bars if you record in portrait. Or you can use the Horizon app.
For all who are interested
There is an app that does this cal Horizon. Google should squire them.
Horizon on Android can do it, not sure whether it's on ios though.
It's a UX issue. It's already shown that people would rather film in vertical than hold their phone sideways so a new solution should be made.
It's really awkward to hold your phone like this which is more secure.
And it's less secure to hold it like this which is more comfortable
The best solution would be to make a simple software tweak. The sensor on a cellphone is more than enough to allow for 1080 recording at either orientation. Hell, there are third-party apps that do it, why not make it stock? As QR codes have proven, there won't be wide adoption of something unless it's put onto the phone by default.
Not sure if it's the one you were thinking of or not, but Horizon crops the video so it always looks like its landscape
That's exactly what Horizon is meant for. Full version gets rid of the watermark and allows you to take longer videos.
Even better, an app that encourages you to take it horizontally, by always doing it, even if you hold the device vertically:
Various Android websites already recommended it. You should give it a try!
I think that he was too.
Use this excellent app:
video after video in portrait... do we need a subway campaign? can a reddit auto bot post the info i'm about to share? "i see you posted a video that was shot in portrait..."
listen people, if holding your phone on it's side is way too challenging, then download Horizon. It will help you not look inept when posting videos.
Look for an app called horizon camera.. You can hold your camera in portrait and it will record in landscape. [link] here is the link
