Does Olympus make a tilting preview display?

    I have a Panasonic GH1 that I use for medical photography. I have found that the tilting display is invaluable for keeping the camera in line with the subject and previewing the picture simultaneously. I don't really use the eye level finder.

    I am building a second camera system and wonder if there is a smaller back available with the tilting display? Do any Olympus models of the micro 4/3 bodies have this feature?

    Here is my camera set up on the medical equipment.

    If tilting up and down is adequate for your purposes, there are two Olympus models to consider: E-PL3 and OM-D/EM-5. If you need articulating screen like GH models, a smaller, higher-resolution model is the Panasonic G3.

    Keep in mind that if you're using older manual equipment Olympus will offer you in body image stabilization as well.

    The E-PL3 can be purchased with the kit lens refurbished from Cameta Camera for $479, you can always sell the kit lens for around $100 as well if you're on a budget (actually they also have the E-pl3 in a kit with the 17mm f2.8 lens, would sell for about $150 and they are both the same price of $479). Not sure of the going rate for the G3 currently, though a quick look at ebay indicates it is slightly above the refurbished E-pl3.

    That's a great setup, may I ask what you are photographing with that ????

    BTW, crsnydertx's and pxpaulx's answers are correct !
