I have built my own depth of field adaptor for a Sony Z1.
I am a technical n00b. Really I am, so bear with me. I built the adaptor with a friend of mine who is much more technically able than me. We used a tutorial on the internet.
My problem is now, that the image is inverted. I have read up on this and I do know that because it is an optical lens, when the light goes into the lens it is bent so inverts the image. In a camera there is something to flip the image back over so it is the right way up in the LCD screen and viewfinder.
What I am asking for, is if anyone has any tips on how to not invert the image? Or even to invert it again?
I really dont know how to solve this problem. I do have a few ideas.
Can I turn off the thing that flips the image in the camera?
Can I put another lens into the adaptor to flip the image again? (to put it right)
I also though, a really cheap and easy way to solve this problem would be fix a small mirror to the top of the view finder so at least I could see the image the right way up.
What do people think?
Just so you know, I do know this is a silly question. I do know I shouldn't have myself in this situation in the first place. And I do know that some of the people here are far above this problem. haha. But I am a student, Im learning. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!
