Patent Application: Olympus new tilt LCD screen mechanism
From this patent application, it appears as if Olympus is designing a tilt screen mechanism similar to Fuji's where you can tilt the screen in both landscape and potrait mode.
I actually really like this method, even though videographers prefer a fully articulated swing out LCD, this patent application I think suits photographers far more than a fully articulated screen.
I think the below diagram shows how Olympus wants it to function perfectly.
The mechanism is very detailed, leading to an assumption that we may see this design sooner than later.
