Another G1X low angle. This is where the Flip LCD really came in handy... shooting Mushrooms!

And the resulting shot.

G1X: Good luck getting these sorts of shots with the same amount of ease.

Couldn't you have achieved all of those shots with just an angled LCD? OK, I appreciate a vari angled screen is going to be ultimately more flexible for a percentage of users but maybe there are reasons for not going with it that we don't know about yet?

The only reason is that the simpler flip screen is cheaper. That's Canon focusing on squeezing out max $$ instead of providing photographic percs. Short-sighted

That is quite a big assumption actually.  Can you substantiate it?
