Hello,

You can rotate and flip the image when you take the picture,
so it won't matter which way the camera is orientated.
The following command will take a 5 second preview with the picture
rotated 270 degrees and flipped both horizontally and vertically.

raspistill -t 5000 -p 10,10,800,600 -rot 270 -hf -vf -v

Regards

Coil the flat cable so it will twist.

Yes you can get adaptor boats to connect the camera with twisted pair cable. I have some. If I remember tomorrow I'll post a link to where I bought them.

How are you rotating the camera? Pan side to side? Tilt up and down?
