Hi!! New kid on the block!! Does anyone know of any digital cameras other than Canon with adjustable, swing out/fold out LDC screens? Priced like under the $400 mark? MEGA THANKS!!

I'm currently considering this camera... Kyocera Finecam SL400R. It's a 4mp camera with a swivel lens in a very compact form. The swivel lens is pretty much the reason I want to buy this camera... But there is no review on it here or anywhere really :roll:

Olympus and Nikon make fully articulated LCDs as well. Minolta hasn't quite got the hang of it yet and theirs only adjust in one plane.

You might want to check out the Sony DSC-U50 and the F88. These camera's allow the body rotate separately from the lens which effectively lets the LCD to swing out at least in one axis. The U50 is under $250 and the F88 is around $450.

The Olympus, Nikon and Minolta's mentioned above are substantially over your price target.

The Nikon 4500 also rotates the lens and is a highly rated camera. Not sure I trust Smile Photo, but the price is nice:
