Some new Canon DSLRs (like the 30D) boast a 170 degree viewing angle for the LCD screen.

1) Does anyone know exactly what this means? My guess is that if straight on is 0, then you can view the screen at 85 degrees in any direction. 90 degrees would be completely side ways.

2) Does anyone have experience with looking at extreme angles? I like to take pictures with the camera near waist level. My camera (G5) has a tilt screen. Will I be able to see the image in the screen of a 30D with the camera at waist level? I also often take pictures above crowds. Will I be able to that with the 30D?

Thanks...

No you can't!

-> They meant after the fact (i.e. for reviewing the images only)
