Flipping the image on the Flyer monitor for use with M2?

(Sorry for the second straight post in this forum...)

I'd like to be able to use the Flyer with a Sony V1 sporting a Redrock M2 depth-of-field attachment, but these devices invert the image - can the standard LCD display on the Flyer be made to vertically flip its image?

Yes, as of...i'm not sure exactly when...the stock monitor can flip vertically and horizontally. Or both... A couple months ago they fixed the feature, so if you get a new rig it will work fine. If you're buying a used rig, make sure to check it first, because this hasn't always been a feature (working, at least).

Yes, ALL Flyer monitors can be flipped, if I recall correctly.

The earlier version monitors had 2 "presets" as inputs "Video 1" and "Video 2".
You could only perform the Flip in "Video 2" mode. This caused some confusion.

Gents, thanks very much for the confirmation about this. Should make using an M2 that much easier...
