    Cameras with Fold-Out LCDs

    I'm looking for a camera with a fold out/swivel LCD Display...i know of several SLR and other professional cameras with this feature, but i'm looking for more of a point and shoot camera, it needs to be compact. Does anyone know of smaller cameras, other than the Canon A620 or A610 (which are not very eye-pleasing) with fold-out LCDs? I know of the Kodak EasyShare One, but maybe there's another one with better performance like those Canons that i don't know about.

    Talking Buy a S3 IS

    This camera has this feature and is highly recommended for both Image Quality and Versatility.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    The other ones I know about are the Canon G5 and A80, Nikon Coolpix 5400 and the Pentax optio 750Z

    Among the more compact models, there are the Pentax Optio 750Z:



    ...and Optio X:



    ...and the Nikon Coolpix S4:



    The 750Z is the only one with the swiveling LCD. The X and the S4 use a rotating lens design instead, which gives you much of the same flexibility. I don't believe their image quality quite matches that of the Canon models, but they are perhaps a little more svelte.

    I think the A610/A620 are the smallest. Why aren't they eye-pleasing? I like their looks.

    I think he means that the exterior design of the camera isn't stylish. While I wouldn't say that that the A series is stylish, it's also far from "ugly."

    I think they could have done way better when it came to the size and look of the camera A625 and A610, it looks okay in the picture above, but in person its rather bulky for a "compact" camera. I think i care about the size of the camera more then the looks. I don't know for sure, but i think the other cameras in the A series are smaller, but they dont have the fold out LCD.
