Hi!

I have a question about all of the DSLR cameras available at the moment.

Currently I use an Olympus C-5060 with the swival monitor feature mainly because being disabled, one of my problems is motoring strength when I try to hold a camera up to my eye for an extended period of time (such as to focus).

The C-5060 allows me to shoot looking down to my lap area, and while it takes a pretty nice picture, I really would like to graduate to a pro DSLR camera that I can actually have a choice of lenses.

Are there any cameras on the market presently that would allow me this luxury? (swival monitor)

Thanks for any help.

GL

DSLR's are different from point and shoot cameras. Because of the mirror being in the way, and larger sensor/heat issues, no current dslr's even let you compose the image via the lcd. The lcd is used only for menu navigation and image review only.

GL-

You might want to take a look at the Sony R-1. It has a waist level LCD Viewfinder that could possibly work well for you. I think it is worth a look.
