A6000 Changes "perpective"

I'm taking pics of small parts with a tripod inside.  I snap the pic and when I review it, it has rotated 90 degrees.  Why does my camera do this.  These parts have writing on them and I want it right side up.

Re: A6000 Changes "perpective"

I just figured it out.  I'm tilting the camera too much.  It seems at level (flat plane) the pics go sideways and if I go beyond that the pic actually flips 180.  I guess a little more depth of field and less leveling will work.

Check your camera manual.  Some cameras allow you to turn off the orientation sensor.
