    I am purchasing a camera for a friend and I've seen some Samsung cameras with a second LCD on the front and one on their website with an articulating screen that turns a full 180. Is Samsung is the only company developing cameras for this niche?

    Can anyone recommend a good P&S that will allow her to take photos of herself easily?

    Many cameras have articulating screens like that on video camcorders. Some cellphones also have screens which turn around. The tiny screen on the Samsung is just a marketing toy. The cartoon to entertain the kids is probably more useful. ;)

    I got into micro four thirds when my Samsung TL220 broke after only six months. I also found that the screen was much less useful than I thought it would be. I'd steer clear of those bad boys.

    This is for someone with no knowledge of photography and just wants to be able to frame shots of herself while traveling.
