So after some research I can safely say I'm thoroughly impressed with the new Canon Rebel T4i. I thought I had decided on this camera after reviewing all of its features and online reviews. But then lastnight I had a second thought and I'm suddenly conflicted about whether I like the flip screen on the back.
What is the point of this? I think it could potentially turn into a point of damage in the future (i.e., the screen sudden gets loose on it's articulation hinges or even get knocked off by accident). I almost rather just have a fixed screen on the camera just to avoid these possible troubleshoots.
