A Mirror-Reflex for the LCD Available/Possible?

I would have liked an articulated screen; I think this camera would be useful for street photos with some sort of waist-level finder, i.e. some contraption to add to the LCD screen - has anybody seen anything like this?

I like articulated screens as well (specifically I think they work well on cameras without viewfinders.) I've seen this: LCD Protector and Angle Viewfinder for Digital Cameras - FLIPBAC INNOVATIONS on ebay (as well as other branded items that were basically the same.) I think something mirrored like this is about as close as you could get. Good luck!

I use mine waist-level all the time, well, for the 3 days I've had it. But I use my Pen waist level all the time and will continue doing so with the K-01. Viewing angle is fine from the top for framing.

As for what you're asking for, yes I've seen them but can't remember where. They've been around a while, and some even function as a sort of screen protector when it's flipped up against the LCD.

I would buy a dslr if you want a right angle finder.
