    Swivi External Swivel LCD Monitor, any experience?

    In situations where I need to take shots from difficult angles or when I for some other reason am not able to see through the viewfinder, I'm mostly using the GH2. But sometimes, the little m4/3 sensor simply doesn't cut it. So I've looked at alternative solutions, like buying an A99 with the needed lenses, but that would cost me in the area of $5-6,000.

    Then I saw this:

    Amazon.com: DLC Swivi External Swivel 5.6" diagonal LCD Monitor for DSLR: Electronics

    Have anybody tried it? It looks like a perfect solution, but how does it work in real life, particularly at the industrial environments where I would most likely use it together with the D700 and a WA lens.

    The whole point for me is to use it when I can't get my face behind the camera, so the examples you link to wouldn't work. Yes, it's rather expensive, but much cheaper than an A99
