Using Mirrors with Camera

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


I am curious if anyone has used a convex mirror that is focused on with a camera from a distance to see in the opposite direction??


I have a project that involves getting a view of a roof. The problem is that the roof is the only place for the camera to be mounted and getting the right view is a challenge. So I was wondering if a convex mirror were mounted on a light pole and zoom in on the convex mirror would provide the necessary view.


Now I know physically and technically it is possible. What I don't know are what are the challenges or unknown problems involved in setting this up.


The camera distance to the convex mirror will be about 60' and I will need at least a 60mm lens to zoom in on the mirror.


Anyone here ever done this and what are the difficulties experienced??


Thanks in advance for any insight.
