# Getting the rotation of camera in Euler Angles

29 February 2016 12:41
To get the rotation of my camera, I've been using :

```cam_rotation = m_trans.get_rotation(cam);
```

This is returning a quaternion. However, I need this rotation value back into blender to set the rotation of a new camera. Is there a simple way for me to do this?

You can still use it in Blender. Just set the rotation mode and the rotation quaternion on the camera as follows:

```camera.rotation_mode = "QUATERNION"
camera.rotation_quaternion = new_quat
```

Also, the Quat can be converted to Euler by using this method. It depends on the angles' order which rotation mode should be set before applying the rotation in Eulers.

However, b4w quaternion should be prepared first, because of different order of its components. Let's assume that it has the following order: [x,y,z,w]. Then in Blender you should use it like this [w,x,-z,y]:

```new_quat = mathutils.Quaternion((b4w_quat, b4w_quat, -b4w_quat, b4w_quat))
```

Ok, great! I will try to implement what you suggested. Thank you
