    some cameras have a 45 or 90degree prism you can attach to the back.

    or you can get a portable monkey bar setup, and hang behind the camera while focusing

    The large format experience wouldn't be the same for me if the image was upright, but that's just me.

    Dan has good suggestions...

    The link doesn't automatically show the cambo binocular viewing hood that gives an upright view of the scene.

    Here is the image of the thing, wonder if it is adaptable to fit on something like a standard wooden field camera that takes normal 4x5 film holders, instead of just Cambo TC's?:

    My suggestion is to stop "fighting the ground glass," stop thinking about the image being upside down and reversed every time you look at it. Be one with the ground glass; accept what is there.

    But perhaps some people can't adjust to seeing this way? I often find myself reviewing a shooting session in my mind and realize that I never really thought about the image being inverted/reversed. I assume that other LF shooters experience the same thing?

    The image is always rightside up on the other side of the Equator
