Sony have now revealed that the new DSC digicam will have a -50 to +90 degree swivel lens, also what looks like a top of lens assembly flash mount. Indicated by the latest picture on their website.

New Sony DSC -50 to +90 degree swivel lens assembly

Interesting? Yes, I think so. Especially if the CCD / Lens assembly is good enough to produce quality images. The swivel lens assembly means you can always keep the LCD in good view when taking at odd angles (note that 90 degree vertical means) you can take those low down / waist height shots and look down onto the LCD... wonder where they got that idea from..
