Can I get an upright image with camera mounted upside down

I am a storm chaser and I would like to mount my camera to he interior windshield of my chase vehicle. The mount that I have will cause the camera to be upside down. When I record the image on the lcd screen is upright but in playback the world is upside down. Is there a setting to fix this or will I need to alter my mount so the camera will be up right?

Flip the image in post. Most editing programs have a vertical flip effect that will fix everything

The most common modern rain sensors are based on the principle of total internal reflection: an infrared light is beamed at a 45-degree angle into the windshield from the interior - if the glass is wet, less light makes it back to the sensor, and the wipers turn on.

I got cryptic answer regarding the problem that the picture on the monitor on my camcroder GZ-HM400 is upside down.


There is a switch within the camera that controls the orientation of the LCD image. When the screen is flipped upside down, the switch is supposed to tell the camera to flip the image upside down as well. If this switch is damaged, the camcorder gets the wrong signal and the image will be displayed upside down. This can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

The image is flipped upside down and won't go back I think the camera might have been dropped


THIS IS A REPAIR SHOP TASK

normally there is a micro switch fixed at the awivl head of the lcd panel. when the lcd is rotated to 180 the switch gets engaged thus turns the image upside down. iF IT IS PERMANENTLY UPSIDE DOWN yhen most probably the switch has worn out.and its not resetting.
You could try a few gentle taps to see if it releases the micro switch

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

My camcorder will not record images but it will record sounds. Please help


My Canon Elura50 did the same. It's a manufacturing defect with the CCD, (The image sensor) mount installed by Sony Corp.

Canon Service centers hounour a full repair of this problem free of charge. You just have to find one close and take it in for "CCD problem"

Incidentally Canon has about twenty or thirty cameras with this same problem. Everything works but there is no image. It's the Sony CCD mount inside Canon Cameras.
Trust me, It's 100% free repair.
