I think this is a very good idea for any camera that does not have a tilt/flip LCD screen and Surapon as usual is the master of coming up with such gadgetry ... here is a link to his thread on how he did it:

Black hair elastics.  I double-looped one around my gorillapod and put a cheap carabiner on it.  Now when I head out with the little camera, I can clip the little tripod on my bag, or the diaper bag, or even a belt loop if I really want to look crazy.  They also can be looped or threaded around straps in various fashions to keep them from flopping around.  I saw that somebody was using them to fix a light leak at a lens mount on some other camera recently (not Canon).

It's a nice workaround if you need a flip screen, but those reflections are very obviously fake :D

Agreed.  If I recall correctly... the angle of inflection is equal to the angle of deflection.
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

So I picked up the tripod ring for the 100mm L.  I like it... feels solid... great value at $15... I initially installed it like I do for my 70-200 f/2.8L is mkii... but it was really off balance.  So I reversed it so the foot faces towards me... and now it is balanced better.  I don't have any immediately plans to do some tripod work... but I am looking forward to it.

You guys are wrong ... this fliback angle viewfinder can defy the lawas of physics for just $15 ;D

EDIT: Before someone thinks its true  ::) or starts blasting me for leading people astray, let me clarify that this flipback angle viewfinder reflects a flipped view of the image of the EOS-M's LCD screen.
