Flip-screen Sample Shots!
« on: November 18, 2015, 01:46:08 PM »
If you have a dSLR with a flip or swivel screen, here's the place to show how this feature helped you take shots that would have been otherwise impossible or very inconvenient.

Looking forward to some creative stuff!

Generally stuff like this should start with your own example. Have one?

This astro timelapse was fu___ing annoying to set up. In order to get required depth of field I needed to get the tripod as low to the ground as possible while framing the tree properly. How does one set up a shot like this?

1) I need to lie on the ground to look through the dark viewfinder to try and get the framing I want and then without bumping the tripod get up and set the intervalometer. ( Or resign myself to being pinned motionless under a tripod for 2-3 hours.)
2) Take an image, remove the camera from the tripod and check composition. Place camera back on tripod. Make adjustment. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.... Repeat until it's right.
3) Tether the camera to a computer. (I prefer not to take my laptop into the bush for numerous reasons)

All the time wasted in setup is imaging time which is lost. A fully articulating screen will greatly speed up the setup process.

I see the point. I wonder, however, if a swifel screen on an dslr would be a good solution to this issue. Personally, if I had such situations a lot, I guess I would prefer using my iPad as live view remote control.

Good case for the screen.  I really like the way you composed with the tree.

High tech overkill.
Really bad UI.
No possibility of FW update.
No WiFi nor GPS.

This thing was DOA since the rise of makeup.  ;D
sometimes you have to close your eyes to see properly.

I'll leave the Improvised-Ergonomic-Devices (IEDs) to TV's Macguyver, I prefer a solidly engineered and proven solution. I'll never forget my 60D's articulating screen at home, or accidentally have it drop out of my pocket in the in the dark in the bush, or out of my camera bag.

P.S. Didn't you get the memo? Mirror-less is the future  :P

Well sure. And I think most people would be happy to see better wifi control. But possible downsides (off the top of my head) are: not everyone has an iPad; iPads are not weather sealed; it relies on wireless connections that, while generally good, are flakier than wired ones; and it's a separate item to remember, recharge, etc. There's room for both, definitely.

Is thread already too far gone to point out I was hoping to see shots taken WITH a flip-screen, not OF a flip-screen?

Great shot!  I hope you didn't just discourage everybody else...

Sorry, YuengLinger. I knew what you meant but my sarcastic attitude just HAD to derail the thread for a bit.  ;D   8)
