which allows the lense to point in one direction, and the lcd in another. I have found this to be VERY useful. If you are taking candids, and don't want it to be obvious, most people won't even notice the camera because you look down while it looks up. Another case is when is is difficult to see the lcd when the camera is in a desired position. It sets you free from having to be behind the lens.
I have short listed 2 cameras, Sony dsc-v3 and cannon g6. I am partial to sony because of brand loyalty. I have done a lot of research, and from what I can tell, these 2 cameras and very similar, with each having their own strenghts and weaknesses. My question is: Does the rotating lcd screen offered by the G6 offer any real world advantages over the 2.5" fixed screen on the sony? I have looked at both cameras, and I know I would be happy with either, I would just like to hear from someone that has used the rotating lcd screen. Thanks
