Flip image on LCD display
« on: December 06, 2013, 04:17:39 PM »
Hi all!! i've used to shoot using a Canon 600d...i ove the flip screen...expecially for low angle shoots. Now i have a 5D mark II.. i love it... the DOF, IOS, Fullframe,etc etc...but the fixed LCD screen is killing me.. i think an inexpensive solution would be looking the lcd though a mirror...  something lik this...mirror -->   \ | <---LCD obviously using the correct angle...  the problem is that the image would be upside down...  Is there any way to rotate the LCD display wit ML?   THanks!!!!!

If it's not in the stable release this is at least in the nightly. Also if you have an android phone you could use it as an external screen for less than $20. Check out this app and the website in the description:

You would need the display to be flipped, not just 'upside-down' (which is rotation). These are not the same transformation. AFAIK ML has an upside-down mode, but not a flipped/mirror mode except on models that already have an articulating LCD: http://wiki.magiclantern.fm/userguide#screen_layout_settings

Or you can use two mirrors, or a prisim instead.

I'm reasking about this as I have a use case and would value seeing a feature in Ml.

I have a fixed LCD, EOSM, but use a flipbac, that inverts the screen. Great for using the camera low down.

Is it worth my while asking for a feature request to invert the ML menu and the LCD screen, so things look normal when viewed in the flipbac mirror?

Cheers
