Why tilting rather than swivelling screens on Oly M 4/3 ?

Have used both

I have a swiveling screen on my E3 (I believe this was the first dslr to have this setup), and a tilting screen on both EM5 and E330.

Both are good, but I really prefer the tilt to the swivel... it's more compact. In order to extend the screen out on the swivel, it has to stick out to the side, and it puts the image off of the plane of the camera/lens. The tilt screen is both more compact in use, and it keeps the image you're viewing in line with the camera body and lens - just seems more natural to me.

OTOH, one thing I really like about the swivel screen is being able to flip it around and protect it when not in use. Also works better for self portraits.

Tomato, tomahtoe...
