New to using blender, and have an image as a plane in the centre point. I'm trying to set a camera up to face perpendicular to it which i preume is doable by resetting position to centre, which I've done, and then changing the angle, but I can't find any shortcut to press to face it downwards, and can't find any input boxes to manually set the rotation by value. Any help?

Here is one of the faster ways to do it.

First change the Camera's position to zero: (If you don't see the toolbar, hit N to pull it up)

Position

Now all you have to do is hit Alt+R. This will reset it so that the camera is facing straight down.

Alt+R reset to the default orientation, which is downward.

Select the camera.

then go to Top View (7 on the number pad)

press Control Alt and 0 (on the number pad) (that moves the camera into the position you're viewing from in the viewport)

In the N menu change the X and Y location of the camera to 0 to center it exactly

You can move the camera up or down as needed (G Z and mouse drag).

All that is not exactly just one shortcut, but it's exact. You can input a value for rotation by typing R then Z (or whatever axis you need) then a number such as 90. Then end off by typing enter or doing a left mouse click.
