Look at MENU button Camera 2 [Panorama: Direction] I don't have an a55 or a33 just looking at the pdf manual.

:D I was going to suggest turning the camera 90 degrees, then pressing the same button. Tom's suggestion sounds more solid :D

You have to set the camera to downwards pano. Then you have to shoot the pano in portrait mode from left to right.

The problem was finding where to set it to downwards pano. 

You have to press the menu button and set it in the second part of the recording menu. It doesn't describe this in the section about using the Sweep Panoram mode.
