    I bought a Board Camera that says Mirror Image. The image is backwards on
    it. By the description on the box I'm starting to get the backwards picture
    of the problem. Does anyone know how these are used or a way to turn the
    picture around mirrors or any other way. The picture quality is superb on
    the camera inspite of the reverse image. Thanks in advance

    See if there are any dip switches on it. It might be reversible.

    I doubt if its the lens. Its cheaper to make a slight tweak to the
    electronics than to tool up to make a special small production lens.




     
  6. No switches on the board. Funny thing
    Neither. It's in the main circuit board.
    The chips are standard -- no reason to
    reinvent the wheel just to invert an image
    since it's trivial to do it on the board.

    If you're still having trouble perhaps it
    was sold, designed or installed incorrectly.
    Contact me and I'll send one of my DIY
    customers from your area to help you
    get it working right. :^)

    I'm presuming that you bought the camera knowing that it was a Mirror
    Image camera (?). If so, it's obviously specially designed to be used
    in a device that uses a mirror. Perhaps some clandestine type of
    camera device.

    As mentioned, some cameras come with dip switches and "mirror image"
    is an option you can choose.

    If you didn't want the Mirror Image camera and this is just what they
    sent you, and you can't change it and it not going to work for your
    application, why not find out if you can return it in exchange for a
    standard camera?
     
  9. Well it wasn't advertised as a mirror image camera. It was a closeout sale
    so I'm stuck with it

  10. you mean; get it working left

    Are you saying that left is correct? :^)
     
  11. I'm presuming that you bought the camera knowing that it was a Mirror
    As someone else said, it's probably a backup camera. We sell them for use on motor homes.

    sometimes left is right, other times right is right

    Unfortunately, the Shrub is almost never right (as in correct) though he is consistently right (as in wing nut). The funny thing is
    that lately true conservatives are coming out (not as in Foley coming out) against Bush because he is *not* by any stretch
    conservative.

    And while two wrongs may not make a right, three rights do make a left...

    True, but three lefts make a quorum.
