Whether or not this was concerted opinion or backed up with any actual tests or not I really don't know. Seems quite plausible. If that is the case I wonder what the difference in thermal noise from the LCD screen difference is between flip out and fixed position LCD screens.
This is very interesting I didn't think about it. Thank you!
If the flip screen helps the neck, the back and the thermal noise then it's a great thing!
