Do you have any clue about photography?

He doesn't know. I use a decent Canon DSLR at work and there's a reason for the viewfinder... I can see things that the LCD doesn't or is incapable of showing. I really don't like the whole mirror/prism setup, but I also haven't seen a decent replacement.

Your articulated LCD is useless until they include a sunlight visible screen. Then, and only then, does regular daytime photography become remotely feasible in Liveview for anything other than pictures of the kids with Mickey.

My Canon's articulated screen is always closed outdoors because all it shows is subtle shapes and the faintest hint of color definition. You cannot discern focus. You can't find the grey-brown bird on the green-brown bush. Low shots, high shots, quick shots, action shots, panos... I do not use the screen at all outdoors. Now, if you're a party or studio photographer, then yes the articulation can be a godsend.

If it had no viewfinder like you are suggesting, it really wouldn't be an SLR, now would it?

I do agree that it needs an articulating screen. That is a must for video.

This article doesn't mention anything about the auto-focus, which is also a must for video. Previous offerings were poor in this regard.

At 1/12th resolution, gimped DR, and inaccurate color reproduction inherent to an uncalibrated screen that will NOT be the final viewing medium?

And how many pictures do you take while lying on the ground, anyway?

An articulating screen is nice, sure, but your comments about viewfinders couldn't be more ignorant and short-sighted.

Hell, what's the point of any camera that won't run the king of photo processing - Instagram - and won't upload directly to FB?
