    Question 7' touch screen LCD with mirror image function?

    Any other brand/model 7 inch LCD touch screen supports mirror image? I checked with Xenarc but only 8' and 10' support that. I have a really nice CCD waterproof camera but it does not flip image horizontally.

    Or, is there somekind of image processor that can do the flipping?

    What the hell? Doesn't Windows Picture And Fax Viewer flip images? I do mine all the time. If that's all you want, just use that program. Or download The Gimp for a more professional approach.

    Well maybe I should point out that this is for video feed, not pictures.

    Ah, that explains my confusion! I'd like this as well, I have a video I need flipped.

    Will you be using it with a computer or run directly from the camera?

    If you're using a computer, I'm pretty sure Powerstrip can flip the video signal.
    Otherwise, no sorry I can't name specific models/brands
    I installed my carpc into my pet Kangaroo, mate.

    Not sure, but if you are going to try and find some sort of video signal processor that does it, it would probably cost a bit more than the camera.

    So how does those regular backup cameras do it?

    Do they have special optical lens to flip image? Or the chip inside the camera does the job?

    All the cameras I have that do it, it's a function of one of the DSPs on the chip. You basically need to rewrite the signal in real time. Nothing you can do with a simple circuit.

    They certainly make video ICs that can do it, but designing a board and all the other stuff you'd have to do to support it would again, probably be not worth it, time and cost-wise.

    So you're probably at finding a lcd that can do it natively, or a camera that can. How nice a camera is it?

    I had a similar problem when I did my reverse camera, seems all the cameras that did flip back then sucked, I wanted a real good 1/3"superHAD .02lux 480 lines camera at least, but there was nothing this good that did the mirror flip...

    there is no simple way of flipping an image, there is nothing that can just go in line... the closest I came to finding something was a 4 camera multiplexor that does the mirror flip selectively for each input... I always wanted to use this & add more cameras to boot, but never actually got around to doing that...

    alpine makes a 4.5" (I think) monitor that does flip(what I winded up using), also there are other strictly video monitors that do flip too, but now your talking vga touchscreen?? I mean if that's flipped it would be useless as a vga touchscreen, unless your planning on being able to flip this on the fly just for camera use??

    now adays there are much better reverse image cameras, I think getting a new camera might just be your best solution..

    Doh! Just got me motivated. My color quad does tons of stuff, for the money I paid was very impressed with the feature set. Wasn't sure if it did mirroring off the top of my head. Just looked through the owner's manual and it does. So, there's one sub-$100 solution here.

    If you go the quad route, you also can have up to 8 cameras
