Continue reading...A patent showing a refined fully articulating screen for cameras has appeared at the Japan patent office (Patent application: 2018-133632).
This patent actually looks at changing the backlight intensity of the LCD depending on how the articulating screen is positioned.
The second part of this patent application looks at how to make the hinge that operates the articulating screen smaller. The engineering required for these hinges is quite complicated.
From Japan patent application 2018-133632:
Also when the surface where an illuminance detection sensor is arranged when the display device combined with the rotatable biaxial hinge is operated differs from the surface which the display device has turned to largely, an illuminance detection sensor will be interlocked with, and the brilliance control of a display device will be controlled by a prior art. that is, a luminance change of an unsuitable display device (TFT) is made — like — problem occurs. When the illuminance sensor...
