    It's only a matter of time Canon will follow up with one albeit a better one which can swivel to the side that can allow u to do a self portrait. This first one by Olympus can't do that.

    Hmm.... Live feed huh? Interesting but den again see the price tag and see my brain if I'm willing to change back to the PnS style. No doubt it'll be useful though.

    So doing self-portraits is obviously important to you when you use an SLR

    Pricing?

    If its full-frame a reasonable price for me would be: $3K
    If its 1.5/1.6 crop FOV: $1.6 - $2K
    If its 2/3rds or 2x FOV: $1.4 - $1.7K

    and obviously a newer product would have (supposedly) better features.

    PnS style? .. dun really need mah .. cos u still have your optical view finder ... the live preview if u wanna use it PnS style or if u're doing macro or studio shoots ... (the live preview allows up to 10x magnification of ANY spot and AF on that spot ... ) and the live preview would make it easier to see if the DOF is sufficient for macros ...

    The crux for me..in fact two of them

    1. sometime straining the eye (AND the whole face) and the posture to get a particular 'twisting angle'..or sometimes its plain poising for a timed shot THAT NEVER CAME ExACTLY WHEN YOU WISH IT WOULD

    2. theres 'other' interested user(s) of my cam that DONT ENJOY all that hard squinting and facial contortionism..end up theres not many picture of myself in my own cam when me friends are on the road!! they always want easy frame-easy snap on their more er..user-friendly P&S.

    perhaps this could be the real selling pt of this newbie...to bridge the 'Phobia' barrier.
    ..or conversely to offer current (ahem frustrated) prosumer users a real taste of instant eyeviewer-feed

    I think people will find that Oly double hinged caliper mount for the LCD pretty robust if it's anything like that found in some of their previous models. You could pretty well lift up the camera by the extended LCD frame. It's hard to say how strong the usual swivel mechanism is.

    In my books, it's a trade off: strength versus the ability to shoot self portraits (with an SLR......hehehehe)

    Well, actually I dun mind learning the art of contortion thru my viewfinder instead of thru the LCD.

    Its these little things like lying on the floor, and doing half the funny poses ourselves that reminds us abt the photo.

    i think the MANUFACTURER should take a frequent look here for marketing tips, looking at the current trend of the poll as it goes..
