Digicams with tilt-and-swivel LCDs always have a place in our hearts. One reason is that they facilitate taking pictures at awkward angles. However, most point and shoots on the market do not come with such displays. This is because the implementation usually results in bulkier cameras.

But now there is Flipbac, an angle finder that uses a mirror to reflect the scene off your LCD, which simulates a screen that's able to tilt. What's more, this gadget can be used in either landscape or portrait mode due to its dual-hinge design. When not in use, it can also protect the display from scratches. The best part is it doesn't seem to add much thickness to the shooter.

But take note that since the view from Flipbac is a reflection, the scene will be shown as a mirror image. So I guess you can forget about navigating menus with it.

Currently, Flipbac is compatible with most cameras that have a 3-inch LCD. The $19.99 price is pretty affordable and you can get from its Web site.
