Will the next G (G17?) have articulating screen?

Hi all, I use my G12 a lot, it's taken around 20,000 pictures and I think it's only a matter of time until it dies.
I would have replaced it already but the later models don't have the articulating screen which for my product photography is essential.
Does anyone know if the next G will have a fixed screen again, or should I just pick up a G1x now they're quite cheap?

Cheers

Rich

Really, why?
It's a total deal breaker for me.

The articulated screen is the reason I bought a G12. The G1X has the articulated screen also.

I would hold out for a G2-X but with canon you never know, with one hand they give and the other they take away.

Don't understand why Canon dropped the articulated screen after G12, it did make life easier though for me to buy the G1x. Much more creative and opportunistic photography available over a fixed LCD screen.

I don't understand the objection to the articulated screen.

I have a G1 and now a G1X -- the quality of the action of the screen is readily apparent.
Most of the time, I use it flat against the body, but there are times when the ability to flip it out is very helpful. If I were buying a DSLR today, my first choice would be the 5DIII, but I would choose the 70D over the 7D and the articulated screen is part of the reason.

It is like video capabilities -- if you don't need it, don't use it, but it's presence does not hurt anything.

I don't think the G17 will...probably the G22 will though. ??

Probably not. Canon made the G15 smaller coming from the G12 and eliminating the flip-out LCD alows for smaller size and lighter weight.

Not everyone is going to ever agree on any one thing. I like the articulating screen for those times it comes in handy for me.

While my G-15 will suffice for a while, I'm very happy that Canon elimnated the flip/flop screen.
Makes the body just too large and isn't that big a deal for real time shooting...in my experience.

I'm with you. This shot of our cat would have been hard to compose without the articulating screen. Camera was about an inch from the floor. This one was taken with my 60D but I also have had the G12. With the screen articulated it was a snap.

But to each his own.

I'm confused, you like the flip screen but hope the G17 doesn't have one?

I've looked around for a couple of weeks and can't find anything from any brand which has everything my G12 has as a replacement.....so I've ordered a G1X :)

I also won't get one without the swiveling screen: easy low shots, high shots, macro shots, in both portrait and landscape orientation.
