And using your smartphone or a tablet as a remote screen allows you to get shots that are impossible or very difficult to get with just a tilt screen. So why not just use the wi-fi option with a smartphone or tablet? It's a 1000x better than a tilt screen. I can set up a macro shot with the camera straight on the ground and even with a tilt screen tilted up I still have to get down on my knees to peer at the screen to check critical focus. With wi-fi and remote live view I can check focus standing over the setup. I can release the shutter, and even make focus adjustments, etc, from the remote wi-fi viewer touchscreen.

totally WRONG, read all the comments above. You seem to think that your apparently limited way of taking pictures (100% tripod based) works for everyone. In difficult conditions a tablet or smartphone is a nuisance at best. Also, I guess a tilt screen is more direct and reliable than the average smartphone (wifi glitches, buggy apps, too many options etc. etc.).
