  1. .... the mirror/prism configuration that can rotate an image fed into a
    camera by rotating one (or more) of its component mirrors?

    Yes. Also (more prosaically) "image rotator".
     
  3. That's it. Thanks.

  5. If you Google on that, you've got to wade through a whole bunch of
    software apps.

    You can often greatly reduce the wading effort by entering "-compiler"
    or some other word that is most likely to occur in a software-related
    description. Then it (usually) ignores all hits with that word in there.

    "Dove prisms have an interesting property that when they are rotated along
    their longitudinal axis, the transmitted image rotates at twice the rate
    of the prism. This property means they can rotate a beam of light by an
    arbitrary angle, making them useful in beam rotators, which have
    applications in fields such as interferometry, astronomy, and pattern
    recognition."

    Edmund scientific had them listed in their catalog last Millennium. :)

    Cheers!
