VVS: Say NO to vertical videos

Recently I watched a video recorded by a smartphone and I realized how awkward and uncomfortable is for us to see a video in vertical position – I say, not we in vertical, but the video that was recorded vertically. Then I remembered a campaign launched two years ago and now I decided to join. I take this opportunity to ask of all smartphone owners to join the campaign against the VVS (Vertical Video Syndrome) and Say No To Vertical Videos.

Not only are the thick black pillarbox bars on either side of the video extremely annoying, but the human eyes are designed to see the world in widescreen. That’s why they sit side-by-side, and not on top of each other. And sure, sometimes it’s just easier to hold your phone vertically in one hand to capture a scene. But if you take the extra second to turn it sideways and use two hands, you’ll capture loads more resolution and the footage won’t look like you’re riding out an earthquake.

Seriously, though — turn your freaking phone sideways. How hard is that?
