Flip / rotate front picture?

Hi,

because i had to mount the forward cam rotated by 180° i now have the problem, that the picture is flipped as well - what had to be expected. i have an older DR500GW with alternate firmware. with this, i was able to configure the cam for the rotated installation. beside the fact, that the software has an option to flip the image, what results in an inverted overlay of the written text in the picture, the option for inverted view is available for the rear cam.

to come to the point: please establish a configuration switch for _the front cam_ as well, in case it has to be installed with the power-connector to the left/rotated by 180°.

thank you!

best regards
Carsten

    Hello Carsten,

    Currently, the inverted view option is available for the rear camera of DR650S-2CH only. However, the view of both front and rear camera of the all BlackVue dashcam's can be rotated/flipped up-down and left-right during playback on BlackVue PC viewer by clicking on the icons shown in the image.

     

    We will forward your suggestion of establishing a configuration switch for the dashcam so that it could record in the inverted view as well.

    I hope it helps.

    Thanks!

    Dear Taqi,

    thanks for your reply. I am aware of this option, however, the layover-imprint is already in the picture (date/time/speed etc.) - and is flipped as well using the forementioned options the pc-software has.

    so - with the current options you only have an inverted/flipped picture but with readeable imprint or you can get the correct orientation using the pc-software but with inverted imprint.

    thats the reason why i strongly ask for the option to have the (front-)camera itself the ability to rotate/flip the picture prior doing the overlay.

    please add this reasons to the mentioned suggestion to the engineering-team to emphasize the need for this - thank you!

    best regards

    Extremely disappointed this feature doesn't exist. I installed my dash-cam only to find the video upside down for every video. You have the feature for the rear camera, shouldn't be hard to add it for the front camera.

    Hello, I have the Blackvue DR650S-2CH, and everything is normal on the front camera and works well. But the rear camera has the image upside down. When I play it back on my smart phone the image and all the information is upside down. Is there a simple way to flip the image and information so its right side up? Also, the installer never gave me an instruction manual, is there a place where I can down load the instructions for the unit?

    Hi,

    I’ve been fine-tuning my DR900S-1CH and after I updated the firm ware I now have an inverted image.  How do I flip the image back to normal?

    Thanks

    The DR650S firmware v1.012 now has the front camera option to rotate (flip or invert) in the app settings.
