I recently upgraded to a K-x from a Panasonic Lumix FZ-30. One featue I miss is the tilt swivel LED screen. I have come up with a way of viewing the screen on the K-x for low angle photos. I will attepmt to attach a few photos to illustrate. ( first attemtp)

In short I have attached a ladies compact mirror to the botom of the K-X wit velcro. The mirror is then angled fo rview of the screen for photos taken from below waste height. This is a big help for old men who are not as flexible as we once were. It should also work for a tripod mounted camera pointed up. Attach to the tripod head instead.

It is not as good as a tilt swivel screen or the " Flipback" comercial product but is is easy on and off and out of the way when not needed.

I picked up the compact mirror at Target for around $4.

Come on Pentax. Enough with the point and shoot cameras in rainbow colors ! Please make a real camera for serious photographers. The list of wants is long. The only thing stopping me from buying a Sony Alpha 99 is it does not use K mount lenses. Please make something competitive with this or the Nikon D-600.

Loyal Pentax user for the last 40 years. :mad:
