That just looks wrong at all levels.

The Future is always coming. Change brings opportunity. I'm all for this! Why should my G-3 Pocket Camera of 15 years ago have a swivel screen and my 7D not be so equipped? It is a tool I would get lots of use from. Build quality is doable, I have no doubt.

EOS 7D w/BG-E7 (3), 550EX (3), 430EX II, Vivitar 285HV, Opteka 6.5mm/3.5, Canon EF-S 10-18/4.5-5.6 IS STM, Canon EF-S 24/2.8 STM, Canon EF 40/2.8 STM, Canon EF 100mm/2.0 USM, Canon EF 70-300mm/4-5.6 L IS USM, Canon 77mm 500D Macro, Tamrac 614 Bag & 787 Backpack, Crumpler 8 MDH, 7 MDH, 6 MDH​photos/johnebersole/se​ts/ (external link)

Ohboyohboyohboy... I won't have to hold the camera so close to my face to chimp every shot!
...wait, my arms will get more tired because you have to move the camera a longer distance back and forth.
But, I won't have problems focusing old eyes at really close distances.
OTOH, I won't have to figure out how to drive my 6" smartphone screen with my camera to see things larger.

You need to give me OK to edit your image and repost! Keep POTN alive and well with member support​hp
