In that case then quite possibly. Certainly a tilt-only LCD is better than nothing but still at a handicap compared to a tilt-swivel.

How, give me an example, the only thing I can think of it a self portrait.

Portrait orientation of a similar shot would be another example. Plus you can close the LCD with the screen facing the camera which is safer.

I prefer the flippy screen as opposed to the twisty one.

I have found three positives going for the twisty, none of which would sway me to choose a camera based on them, they are:

1                     Many times one can twist the screen around and basically protect the screen when shooting with the vf.

2                     If twisted outward the screen can act as an additional rest….rest the screen on your shoulder while using the vf with camera pressed against your face…a little more stability

3                     As Paul said, self portraiture
