This will probably be a very short and sweet topic! So far, I have not been able to find a dSLR with an LCD you can swivel to view from in front of the camera. Are there any models with this feature?

Due to the nature of the SLR you cannot use the LCD to compose shots; that must be done via the eye viewfinder. The LCD on an dSLR is only for playback of an image, viewing and setting menus etc.

I told you it would be a short and sweet topic! A little less drinking and a little more thinking on my part would have realised there's a bloody mirror in the way of the CCD/CMOS!

Thanks for the reply - and for not taking such easy shots at me!

Well... I don't know how difficult it is but I imagine that some of the low-end DSLRs will start to use the techniques of the high-end prosumers (whatever they may be).
