Flipback : Angle Viewfinder for Digital Cameras

Interesting piece of gadget I saw on the net and wondering if I would ever need it though.

A product known as Flipbac, an angle finder that uses a mirror to reflect the scene off your LCD, which simulates a screen that can be tilted. This gadget can be used in either landscape or portrait mode due to its dual-hinge design. When not in use, it can also act as a screen protector ! The best part is it doesn’t seem to add much thickness to the shooter.

Currently, Flipbac is compatible with most cameras that have a 3-inch LCD. For example, my new camera, Canon IXUS 870IS is listed on the web site. The web site has a list of compatible cameras as well as some scenarios where you might find the gadget useful (I keep thinking of the “naughty” scenarios though … 🙂 )

The USD 19.99 price is pretty affordable and you can get from its Web site.

  1. The trouble is, you’re looking at an upside down image. Why manufacturers don’t provide flip out and rotatable LCD screens is a real mystery as they vastly expand the abilities of any camera. I have a five year old Canon G-5 with a flip out screen. I can set the camera on the ground and shoot, or I can hold it over my head and shoot. I can hand hold my G-5 inside a bunch of flowers and compose a close-up with flash and a dramatic sky background.
