Footage orientation puzzle
 
Last Thursday I went on a whale watching trip out of Boston Harbour.

Since my A1s is still fairly new and heavy to handhold for an extended period without a tripod, I opted to borrow a Canon VIXIA HFS120/20 which is a full frame HD CMOS unit.

Unlike any camcorder I've used before the VIxia can shoot with the subject either horizontally or vertically.

Now here's the mystery:

I shot a number of clips as an experiment vertically/"skinny and tall" which is new to me.

Initially when put on the timeline of course they were orientated/displayed sideways.

By rotating the clips 270 degrees that fixed the orientation however to fit the clip to properly display in the window I had to resize (scale) it to only 58% of its original size.

That yielded an image which did not even fill a 3rd of the screen!

What can I do to magnify/restore those images to their intended size, quality, format as shot and preserve the aspect ratio (16:9)?

Thank you

You cannot restore this the only thing you can do is scale it up to 180% to fit the screen and have a huge qualityloss.

What exactly does it mean? And how is it different than simply turning your other camera 90 degrees?

I think it might be a marketing equivalent of "we're shooting 1080p, so there is no interlacing, and you can rotate the picture however you want".
