But surely you're not using the swivel facility? Isn't this just the same as the Olympus tilt screen, without tilting it?

You are correct. I added another post immediately after my first:

On second thought, you must be referring to the tilt function only. I guess it all depends upon what you prefer. I have been able to take some stealthy videos when my camera was on a tripod by folding my GH2's swivel screen out sideways (90 degrees) and monitoring it while not facing the subject. Way more versatile than a tilt screen.
