Does anyone know if the magnet trick works with a Z1U?

Hello,

When i rotate the LCD screen and turn 180 it to face whatever i am recording the image flips. On my sony camera this flip is activated by a small button which gets released. Im not sure about my gs150 but its probably the same exact thing.

If you need to flip the screen, why not just make sure this button is pressed/released? It should be simple enough to solder another switch to it?

If this has already been mentioned please forgive me.

*edit*

Actually im mistaking, that button serves another function. But the lcd image does flip, so the functionality is there. Its a switch of some sort

Come in spinner! Imagine if I was a poor student who'd just taken
his newly acquired camera apart. Luckily, I'm not. Now has anybody got a real answer? What's the most expedient way to flip the image on the z1, or is it not possible?

I've both the Sony TRV940e (it's like the 950) and the old Sony TRV900e. On both the magnet to flip the screen dos'nt work.

So the alternatives are an external monitor upside downor or a simple mirror.

Very cool and very nicely done. Same for the footage, and the site!

Keep it up!

most expedient flip

I too was worried about the flip issue. the most expedient method of flipping the image for me was... buy a letus35 flip. Camera records right side up, lcd views right side up and the captured footage is... right side up!

Andrew, sure that sounds all fine and dandy, and with such a beatuful package, you lose a little over 3 stops of light. big prob.

I like that viewfinder idea very very much. Its exactly the smae thing as buying an lcd such as a playstation 1 external lcd moniter. (costs about 50 bucks) and flipping it upside down. its that easy!

no light loss, and a 50 extra cost, as oppsed to a built in flipper with the adapter which loses much light.

3 stops? Maybe on the old "non-enhanced" flip, but mine is nowhere near 3 stops. Quyen claims 1.5 and that probably isnt far off.

1.5 is still a fair bit of light loss for indoor shooting, and possibly too much for you, but 3 stops? no way.
