Portrait: an image containing someone’s head and shoulders. Portraits are there for humans and selfies. Contrary to what literally every person with a cellular device thinks, portrait mode is not made for filming videos. This happens to apply to a recent (and heavily disputed) video of a high speed chase.
Make sure to check that video out. It’s pretty wild.
heavysquad’s comment is absolutely savage—but, I mean, it’s definitely one way to look at the events that transpired. Please, folks, remember to use landscape mode when filming interesting events so that us couch voyeurs can peep from home. And for you, heavysquad—congrats on that comment of the day.
