For those against a flips screen, do you realize how well they are secured and semi protected?
You can have the flush and slightly recesses while screen is facing you on back of the body. Can does a nice job in that when flipped around, it is slightly recessing into the back of the body protecting rotational hinge torque from bumping on the screen edge.

The hinge is quite beefy, they know many people are going to use it as a left hand gripp on the camera.

Nobody is going to leave it flipped out when not shooting and it won't swing out on its own.

Any damage to the screen while facing you but flush to the camera likely would damage a non articulating screen as well.

Just upgraded the Canon 100mm F2.8 macro to the L version and like the new lens very much on the 7D Mk II!

Cheers

100-400II + 1.4II Iso 51200
I can only imagine what the next generation sensor in the 5DIV will bring us in the next generation 7D and Gschlact's Flip screen, if this is what you can do with 51200 H2 in the present 7DII

Thanks I really enjoy it, I guess thats why i'm willing to endure the -30c winters on my knee's in the snow. I of course have good gear to keep me warm. I guess I'm thinking of snow because there calling for 10 to 15 cm tomorrow. Under normal circumstances I would be out there. but my wife father passed this last weekend and that takes precedence. I'm very glad that you take something from the images I shoot. Its what its all about for me.

Condolences to your wife and you Jeff

Paid a visit to Dawson Creek Park in Hillsboro, Oregon after eBird indicated a profusion of wood ducks, up to 350 of them! It was a really rainy afternoon and it rained throughout the 1.5 hours I spent walking around. But the wood ducks were there, not quite 350, but I counted at least 125 of them. Here are a few of them! Hope you like them!

All taken with the 7D2 & 100-400 II.

cant say Im against them but I dont feel the need for one on 7DII, I think there is a good reason that a camera like 7DII does not have one, Im guessing it was more about weather proofing and making it pretty tough. I know most time the flip screen is pretty robust but I have a friend who had her flip screen on her 60D crack in the camera bag from possibly a bump. The cost of repair is not worth it and you can still see the image through the crack but she has just turned it inwards and does not use it anymore. Why it cracked we have no idea, maybe it was slightly angled or something when it was closed and put down in the back of the car, maybe the heat, who knows. I can see why people like them though, I do use my hubby's 70D for the screen sometimes and that is never when shooting high speed birds or anything like that which to be honest is what 7DII was made for, wildlife and sports, mostly I use 70D for macro and video. Im pretty happy with the 7DII as it is to be honest

And that's just fine on a prosumer body for the kids and amateur videographers out there...

But, they don't belong on a pro body...as pointed out below:

And, don't get me started on touchscreens...

I'm sorry but, for the hard of thinking out there who are always screaming for a touchscreen...it's a camera, not an IPAD...the screen already has a function, reviewing images...quite hard to do through fingerprint smudges...:rolleyes:

I think this camera is being carried into the field by just exactly the consumer Canon wish and hoped for... The 40 to 60 year old with 10 grand to slap down on the 7DII and 100-400LII. and I believe they categorized it as semi pro to make that person feel they could justify the cost. and it worked.. But those same individuals all have iPads and iPhones in there pocket and have become accustomed to moving around a screen with convenience and speed. I don't know about you but my 7DII is always covered in something so as to make the screen harder to see. You see I use mine in the worst conditions and in all types of weather. I do see someone shooting subjects that are stationary not understanding the needs of the 50 something guy in camo from head to toe shooting wildlife. But those who think there professionals do not have a 7DII, I see two kinds of people trying to make a living with there camera. One shoots $30,000 to $50,000 worth of gear and the other the same old gear they've had for 10 years. Both look hungry. But the guy with the 7DII looks well fed as he is the back bone of the work force in this country.

but flip and touch screen works REALLY well for video from my experience. The 5D4 has touch screen I believe and thats no prosumer camera

doesn't the new Nikon D500 which is now the competitor to the 7DII have a flippy screen or touch screen? I could not care less either way, but I do see uses for the flip screen

I could be wrong, but I believe the d500 has a flip screen, but not articulating. Also, I think it has some touch screen capabilities.
