Minolta Dynax 7 vertical rotating screen

I bought my first AF film camera this month (October 17, 2020), a Dynax 7, and I am totally amazed how great camera is this. It's heavy and bulky like a professional DSLR, no question.

One of the features I was surprised by was autorotating screen on the back of a film camera.

The screen display options on Dynax 7.

Actually it is not fully automatic, you have to half-press the shutter to force auto-rotation.

You can disable this feature. Interestingly at this time they didn't use the term menu. The term CUSTOM was used, instead.

... and it still works on my camera, too, in 2020. I wonder if it remains operational for the next 20 years?
