    Anyone used the Flipbac? - flipout mirror?

    Has anyone had any success using the Flipbac mirror for street photography or people shots? I have a EP1. They post pictures of it on the EP1 on thier website. Before I cough up the cash I'm curious for anyone's comments or tried it on this camera. Website : flipbac.com

    Thanks in advance

    I have one, they're ok but not great. I use it more for odd position shots.

    Agree with Hudson. If the EPs and GFs are for style and compactness, even that idea is ruined by attaching the mirror while serving no good purpose.

    I bought one for my G9, used it part of one trip and ripped it off. I was hoping it would help me see the LCD when there were light issues--nope because of the angle it has to be to reflect the LCD.

    I bought it and used it for a while, but ultimately found it too obtrusive, so I removed it after a few months.
