That . . . was pretty awesome.

Also, hand held video is shot vertically these days. You people need to stop whining about it.

Yup.

I was annoyed by it too for a long time, but phones held sideways are much less convenient. And vertical video is viewed better on phones, which is where more video is being viewed.

So?  The phone is equally capable of showing horizontally shot video whereas all other means are not.  There's a reason film is shot in 2.4:1.

ps...the only reason your internet overlords are pushing vertical video is so they can sell ad space on the sides.
