Second opinion... I don't know, but it looks like an articulated screen like on the 60D but not sideways.

Nothing. The one with the 70-200 attached is a 60D with an articulated screen.

Indeed?  Evidently you're seeing several things that aren't there...  First off, there's no 70-200 in the pic, the white lens is a 100-400mm.  Second, the camera attached to the white lens has a multicontroller (aka joystick), which the 60D does not, and also lacks a popup flash. 

I still don't know what the accessory is, but I wanted to correct obvious mistakes...

You gotta love the description:

2). Its perfect state-of-art design allows it integrated with the LCD system and makes the camera more professional.

Now I have to get one of these. Or better two.
