I've got an Olympus C-3020 3.2 megapixel camera. It's probably about 3 years old but is was well rated by CU when I bought it. I take the pictures in "Super High Quality" mode and then use "mogrify -resize 320x240 picture.jpg" to reduce it for the web.

Mogrify is part of the free ImageMagick suite of tools available here:

They work best under Linux but there is also a Windows version.

Your bus sure is lookin nice. I also had one of those Intel branded confrence cameras. I got mine from the trash where I used to work. Turned out they junked it because it did not work. How are you reversing the image from the camera?

Reversing? Right for left? Do regular backup cameras do that? Honestly, it didn't even occur to me, I expect I'll be doing the reversing in my head. I'll just have to watch out if I ever drive someone else's rig!

how about mounting it behind you so you can see it in the big rearview mirror?

If you ever want a reverse image on a TV, you can do that by reversing the leads going to the picture tube coil (I used to do that, by accident, when I was repairing TVs in school).

I am planning on doing this on my conversion and I'll post pics as soon as I get it done (please don't hold your breath though).

If you feel like you're not qualified to do it yourself, just get a TV tech to do it. The job is simple and shouldn't cost much.

Just remember, you'll be permanently modifying the TV.

Ah yes, I should have thought of that, I used to be a TV repairman myself in the late 70's when people still repaired their TVs.

I wonder if a DPDT switch could work? Though at 15Khz lead length would be an issue and you'd be liable to blowup the horizontal output if you flipped the switch with the TV on.
