I bought the MAIX BiT as set together with camera and LCD display, and I’m beginning to play with the example Python scripts. I run the following
import sensor, lcd sensor.reset() sensor.set_pixformat(sensor.RGB565) sensor.set_framesize(sensor.QVGA) sensor.run(1) sensor.skip_frames() lcd.init(freq=15000000) while(True): lcd.display(sensor.snapshot())
What is confusing to me is that the image on the LCD is rotated by 180°, e.g. when I look into the camera I see my face upside down.
I looked for some videos on YouTube that show demos of the MAIX bit. See for example these videos:
In these videos the image on the LCD display has the same orientation as the camera.
So is it possible that I made a mistake when assembling the MAIX bit with camera and LCD? Or is the rotation effect with the
demo_camera.py expected so one needs to rotate the image from the camera in software to get the same orientation on the LCD display as on the camera?
