- Tilt screen? no thanks. It adds bulk, and adds stuff that can break. If you need some alternate view points, you can use your smart phone via wireless, or third party device.

If there are no cell towers around, can a smart phone or pad be used?  It sounds a bit fiddly, but then I could also have a wildflower encyclopedia with me on my hikes, so I am warming to the idea.

Using a smartphone is nice when you have time - pairing doesn't always works or is fast-, and when you can prop your camera. You can have an articulating screen that also locks down against the body via a latch and that'd be best of both worlds.

As for a cell tower, you use the phone's wifi to connect to the camera, mine looses cell connectivity when it pairs so a tower wouldn't help
