What is Canon thinking?

Canon made a BIG mistake in not using the Vari-Angle LCD. Part of this MIGHT have something to do with the new screen being a touch-screen.

Unfortunately, this design (if you look at the second GIF image) exposes the electrical wires when the LCD is fully extended. BAD design.

I tend to agree with you.  It definitely seems like a step back.  I have two fully articulated screens that I love.  But I have seen Sony, Olympus, and Canon choose this type and I have recall hearing that this allows thinner design from all of them.  I think it will meet my needs fine, but it does on the surface seem less durable or more prone to damage.  But I will wait and see.  I am sure they had valid reasons. I don't think their goal was to disappoint.
