I will start using these acronyms for LCDs...

Having to write out articulating touchscreen LCD every time is getting tiresome so I will be using these acronyms:

articulating touchscreen LCD (Canon 70D and Pany G5): ATSLCD

tilting touchscreen LCD (ex. Oly OMD EM5): TTSLCD

tilting non-touchscreen LCD (ex. Sony a6000): TLCD

fixed touch screen LCD (ex. Canon EOS M and Pany GM1): FTSLCD

fixed Non-touchscreen LCD (ex. Canon 7D): FLCD

ATSLCDs are so useful to me that I often mention them in posts. Any suggestions for other conventional acronyms?

I think you need to expand these acronyms to describe where the hinge is located.

"The fact is that relatively few photographers ever master their medium. Instead they allow the medium to master them and go on an endless squirrel cage chase from new lens ...to new gadget, never staying with one piece of equipment long enough to learn its full capacities, becoming lost in a maze of technical information that is of little or no use since they don't know what to do with it."
