Cameras that allow invert / flip image in EVF or live view?
« on: April 22, 2018, 06:04:26 pm »

Hi everyone,
Im just wondering if any digital cameras have the ability to vertically invert the live view or EVF image to aid composition. I miss composing like this when I'm not shooting 4x5. Seems like an easy thing to add in firmware but I'd love it. I know I can shoot and then check afterwards but its not the same.

Pretty brand agnostic over here!

Interestingly, I have longed for the same thing since I gave up my 4x5 and started using digital cameras. Clearly it should not be difficult to do though I am not an engineer. I loved the abstract, geometric view one has with an upside down-reversed view. It allowed for and even insisted on a more contemplative approach. I'm not holding my breath though.

Trivial to implement, as can be seen from review screens that auto-rotate the image.  But Iíve never heard of a camera with the feature.

This video may be solution to your problem (around 2:00 in is interesting).

Ridiculous to think Iíll need to buy a seperate screen instead of using the perfectly good 2 available on my camera but it may be the only way.

When we had this same discussion in the past, I suggested that, but it was pointed out that you actually need to have the photographer upside down!
