Cool add-on swivel screen Canon...?
Sep 26, 2012

Discussions in another thread got me wondering...

If Canon wanted to be really cool, they could add a screw-on swivel screen. (Nikon too of course)

Making a special robust connector on the side of the camera, we could plug in and screw down an accessory screen.

It should become part of the camera, being able to swivel, but also flip shut against the original screen when you put the camera back in the bag, so that it can stay on permanently for those that want it.

This could even give us the option of having both screens working at once, Liveview on one and all the settings on the other. Or Liveview on one and 10x magnification on the other. Or Liveview on one and the last shot taken on the other. Or Liveview on one and histograms on the other...oh what fun lies ahead...!

With the hdmi output already there, it should be easy-peasy technically, the robust connector would be the most difficult thing to decide upon!!!
Anyone else want one?
