Tilting screens and 90deg EVFs...

...make such moments easier to capture because they increase your stealth factor. The 90deg EVF was used for that shot. It's still a bit obvious because you have to put the camera to your eye, though. I prefer a flip/ tilt screen, if given a choice. Still, better than nothing at all.

Thanks Ming for your review of the X2 which was written from a photographer's viewpoint. I especially enjoyed the sample photos you took - the capture of the yawning guy was a good example of hitting the 'decisive moment'...
