    Indeed : ) Not even a tilt screen à la Sony to say the least.
    Perhaps an accessory like this one might be of some help on that one for the 5-inch screen size, obviously -- not available for this offer though:

    I recall about a few other ones on ebay I can't find anymore now. Here's a good tip a 3rd party may take in hands as easy as it apparently seems at least.

    @Damphousse If I were a wedding photographer, I might choose the a7 III. If I were a vlogger, maybe the a6500 or any one of the Panasonics. If I were a tourist, maybe the Sony RX100 or whatever. If I were wealthy, maybe a Kinefinity. A sports photographer, maybe Nikon. Or maybe I prefer the full frame look of ML RAW. Why do people have to defend their choices? To say this camera is the be-all and do-all is silly. It only turns the forums into an echo chamber.

    KurtAugust got a reaction from IronFilm in Poll: What lenses do you want from the full SLR Magic APO cinema set?   
    I would mainly like a 35mm. All round lens that I could do a whole film on if needed.

    If anyone wants to see how the LX100 performs in a theater setting:
     
    Trailer for a theater piece for kids and grown up kids.
    First shot is cropped from 4K, shot square for the purpose of the shot. All the wide shots are LX100, punched in a bit here and there. Lots of different color temperatures. Intercut with Canon 5D and Canon 600D.

    Well, I don't mind the price. I captured a theater performance yesterday and the LX100 was my master shot. First gig with it. I was pretty blown away by it and preferred it to the Canon 5dIII, especially considering the ease of the workflow (realising ML Raw is not even an option here) and how easy it was to rig up (15mm tube clamp under the camera to mount it to rods and you have access to battery chamber).
     
    You do have the disadvantage of not having hdmi out and freedom of lenses, no headphone, no microphone in, etc. But I think it's a perfect companion to a GH4. What is there not to like? It pays itself back in a couple of jobs. And being able to shoot in a square format larger than hd is pretty wild for fx shots...
     
    The 15 min recording limit is a bit silly of course, but what a great low profile camera this is.
