Flip!

Post by Altocumulus » Sun Aug 09, 2020 2:18 pm

Is there any reason why Altair cams aren't flip adjustable in the settings? I have the 178mm hypercam - I don't get the option.
I thought I was imagining things when I switched between my ZWO and the Altair.

Hi,

the reason that this is different from camera to camera is that SharpCap doesn't actually provide the functionality to flip the images – the underlying camera software does (at least for some brands of camera). ZWO make the flip functionality available all the time whereas Altair only make it available when the cameras running and RGB mode. Other brands of camera don't have any built-in flip functionality at all.

It's something I'd like to fix up at some point in the future – and the ability for SharpCap to fill in this missing functionality on camera brands that don't support it.

Cheers, Robin
