Canon News has found a patent detailing a new tilting screen mechanism for the EOS-M cameras. This possibly takes up less room that a full articulating screen, and also doesn’t force you to always have the screen to the side.

Awww....based on the button configuration and lack of EVF, there you are my M6 II.

I am waiting..... :)

Hopefully it comes with Touch and Drag AF like the M5.

I doubt, it will tilt both ways in one camera body. Just have a look on the different LCD connecting flat ribbon cable leaving the body on the bottom side on the left picture and leaving the body on the left side on the right picture.

The touch and drag is worth much more to me than the screen movement. I never unfold my M5 screen... it's useless, but the T&G is pure gold.
EOS 5D3, EOS M5 and no room left in the 1510.

I'll place my order for a fully articulated screen with T & D.

Useless? It's useful to unfold when you have to hold the camera above your head or low down. But, if you never do that I suppose that it is useless for you.

An articulated screen does not force you to always have the screen to the side......
The best camera is the one in your hands

To each their own, right? There are many types of photography I do not participate in and those features are useless to me, sure there's another way of putting it, such as "I am sure these features are priceless to others but I have yet to embrace them."
