T3i Live View Rotation

Hi!

I am shooting with my T3i on a tripod with the lens facing straight down to film a video tutorial of detailed beaded jewelry. I got the T3i so I can flip the screen to the front so it faces the same way as the lens. The problem is I have to rotate it past the point where I can see it in order for it to auto rotate the screen so I am not viewing it upside down. So its screen is opened and rotated 180 to the subject matter but it is showing it upside down. I have to continue to rotate it to have the screen flip but it is too far past the point from where I am sitting. I hope you guys can understand that. Anyway, I would love to have the live view rotate at less of a degree or is there a way to flip it? I can add a pic later if it would help. 

Thanks

Laura

Re: T3i Live View Rotation

Hi DSCLaura!

 

Welcome to the Canon Forum.

 

Normally, the LCD would face directly at you if you were looking at the back of the camera.  So that I may understand the issue better, please explain in more detail what you need to do to get the image to display correctly. 

 

Are you rotating the LCD forward or backward?

 

When the camera is pointing straight and level, does the LCD still show an upside-down image?

Re: T3i Live View Rotation

This is the set up, I guess the easiest way to ask would be regardless of the camera and LCD position is there a way to flip the live view 180? I know if I tilt the LCD more towards to the work space table it will flip but then it is not easy to see from where I am sitting, it is then facing to far down.  I may just have to live with this? Thanks!
