    I may re buy my canon eos 60D for the proper articulated screen

    What is the cheapest NEW Canon with one please.

    Is there a Nikon with one and I mean full rotatable articulated NOT just one direction

    Found the 5300, any others ;)

    Thanks

    Don't see the point really, but I've never used live-view on a DSLR, a right angled-finder does me. I can't remember if I've used the articulated screen on my Fuji mirrorless to take a picture, I think I've always used the viewfinder. I have pulled it out to see what it does.

    I have it on my Nikon D5300 and also on my Panasonic. I find I am using the live view more and more. Certainly a lot of the shots I do, having an angled screen is a great advantage. The squirrel and Jackdaw shots, OK not NH perfect stuff, I took last week. It was so much easier sitting still inside, camera on my lap, glancing at the screen, then taking the shot. Had I been moving and using the viewfinder they would have noticed me a damn sight quicker than they did.

    Thanks, appreciated

    When I took these the camera was on a tripod right back against the wall you could not see the screen or the viewfinder the ONLY way to see the image was to fold out the screen and flip it

    I have used it very successfully on a tripod with an Olympus E5 also with a Pen-F of course those are only available second hand now, I am seriously considering upgrading to a 6D mk2 in order to get it on FF but that is a bit extravagant

    The two cameras I have it on are my Canon EOS 60D and my Sony a77ii .
    The Sony A mount cameras my main system and I can highly recommend the a77ii if your happy with an EVF and aren't tied into a system by lenses .
    The EOS 60D ( and an old 5D ) were bought partly to use with the Canon 1-5x macro when I had it , and for when I use some Canon film cameras where I want stabilised lenses and want a digital backup .

    It sounds like you had the 60D anyway , so you'll know if it'll suite you needs again .
    I'm not sure what other options are available with this feature , so can't help you further .
    For low level shooting , macro etc , it's certainly a big help .

    You remember you asked us to tell you when you might be going over the edge? You're going.

    Sorry can’t help re-Nikon
    But I have both the 70d and 80d (never used a 60d)
    Of the two I have I much prefer the 70d even though the 80d is more advanced.

    Reason??
    Continuous focus in liveview.....amazing, 70d tracks the subject whereas the 80d has deleted this feature. It’s the only reason I kept the 70d, also think the build quality is “tighter” on 70d. 80d squeaks! It’s lighter than 70d so guessing canon used thinner plastics ?? Or some other cost cutting measure - needless to say I much prefer the 70d for handing.

    Never held a 90d so can’t comment on either continuous live view focusing or build quality.
