Flip out screen? No thanks.

a flip out screen would be great. its the one thing that I missed when I had a Canon PowerShot G3 back in 02.
but it's not a deal breaker.

But I don't think they will be putting that type of screen on there yet. esp if they are trying to make the camera smaller than the 5Dmk3

Flip out screen would be amazing! Non-movable screen people often dis flip screen as "less pro" so it has a bad stigma, it's not seen as "cool" to like it--it's a consumer feature. Live view was the same way. The two tie together.

But, what you really need to think of it as, is that live view with movable screen is like having a view camera with a loupe. Only in this case you can move the loupe to any angle you want. Think of the use for landscapes and such. It's a movable loupe. ;-)a

It's one of the most useful features imaginable, once you've gotten used to it it's hard to do without. It can also be a durability advantage, not a disadvantage!

Plus, opponents of movable screens already have great options: 5d3, 5d2, 1ds/2/3, 1dx, D3/D3s/D700/D800/D600 (soon), A850/A900, Kodak SLRn/SLRc, Leica M9...you get the picture. People who want the movable screen and full frame are stuck with...the upcoming A99. And...that's it.

I don't quite understand the aversion to the flip screen. I use it with Liveview all the time on my T3i - it is great for capturing awkward shots, like bugs on the ground where positioning my body to look through a viewfinder is physically impossible.

You don't have to use it - just keep it stowed and it looks just like a fixed screen.

IMHO, and I respect yours,

I can think of two situations where a flip screen would come in handy - close-to-the-ground macro shots, and framing while holding the camera high overhead (like in a crowd).

Obviously, it's not a necessity ( I have a 7D and 5D3, neither of which have a flip screen ), but I think it would be handy to have on at least one body.

My first digital camera (the G1) had a flip screen and I have missed it ever since, for those two situations. If they put it on a camera like this, it needs to be tough (like the ones on the G's) or it could become the fist thing to break.

I too do not understand people's aversion to the flip outs. If you don't want it, don't flip it out. Kept flat against the back of the camera, it is almost indistinguishable from a camera without one. It is just like the aversion to video, or going back even farther, AF.

From what I understand, the 60D was planned to have a large video following. A flip screen is very nice to have when using the camera for filming at angles generally not used (often) in stills.

I wish all of the new cameras had flip screens.

Personally I find myself trying to frame shots from odd angles, and it helps tremendously. I have a 50d and use my friends t3i all the time. And of you do any type of video, it's impossible without an external monitor on a t2i. I don't see the drawback to it. Slightly smaller screen? Weather sealing impossible? I dunno

Now if it's touch screen, that is a whole other story.

I'd like to see the swivel screen as well; I didn't think I'd like it, but it's quite handy on my 60D. If you don't like it, just lay it flat, and it's no different!


I wonder if the video editors on The Titanic ever went, "Sorry, I can't right now. I'm busy synching the Titanic..."

I was not aware there was a difference between the two? When I referred to the flip screen, it was in reference to t3i/60d screen

I suspect everyone in this thread, when talking about a flip screen meant a flip/swivel screen like the ones found on the 60D external linkas opposed to the ones that just flip out like the ones on older camcorders. Yes, if it doesn't flip and rotate, it would be a disaster.

On my G1 (which I hardly ever use anymore) the screen was kept flat against the camera facing out 99% of the time. When shooting high or low, I would flip it out and rotate as appropriate. It is a feature that I did not use much, but when it is useful, it is great! When it is not needed, the screen stays flat against the back of the camera and works just like an fixed LCD. What's not to like?

BTW, there is also one other benefit to this kind of screen --- when not in use, you can rotate the screen so the relatively delicate LCD surface is protected (facing the camera) and then, when needed, rotate is so that it faces out.
