Rotate Camera Feed


#1

I’ve been using the Logitech C270 webcam and it’s working quite well.

However, due to my limited space, I’m looking to mount the webcam at a 90 degree angle. This of course means all the captures will be rotated at 90 degrees. I’ve been looking around and don’t see any settings to permanently rotate the camera feed. I was about to jump into the code and see if there’s a simple setting, but I figured it might be more intuitive if it was an added setting in the software.

Thanks!

Thanks @Kevin_Weirauch, we’ll add this to the feature requests bucket. It’s a good idea. Thanks!

First thought that comes to mind is printing a custom mount. A couple examples on thingiverse. If that is not an option and the camera image can’t be rotated by astroprint (yet.) You could rotate it in software afterwards.
I use a thermal imager (like a flir sensor) that was designed for cell phones. I use a 10" tablet that causes the image to be rotated 90° to the actual view. With still pics and video saved will also show 90° degrees sideways. I use an android photo editor to flip it sideways. The picture will display properly (the temp readouts end up sideways. Hehe).
My first choice would to print a custom mount or even a camera case that would be part of the printer. But there are a couple options available till astroprint get more bells and whistles done.

Hi Kevin,

Could you please share how you’d get the Logitech C270 to work?
I am unable to get this cam to work in Astroprint.

Thanks!

Hey Extera,

If I recall, it was just plug-and-play. I’ve switched back to Octoprint for the time being and am using the Raspicam just for convenience.
