    I'm out in the middle of my son's football practice, taking a few snaps with my new PEN F, and I'm finding I like the monitor screen turned inside. So it strikes me... Oly! Go full retro and put a film box tab holder on the back! We all used those for all sorts of things! I remember turning the box ends over and writing bride/groom names on them! Go full retro Oly!

    Even better, make and sell stick-on versions. That way you can make the money

    Nah, Spiratone had those, didn't stick well to rough surfaces.

    Then maybe a Leica-like ISO wheel? There's such a great blank canvas there for something revisited.

    Gaffers tape like you would put on the roll of film... put it on the SD card afterwards. Hmm... I may just be getting old but I was like, why not? Done that. LMAO. And I don't even use a Pen-F... but did it one film so why not?

    I find I like being able to flip the LCD inwards. It protects the screen and I just use the EVF for shooting. I flip out the screen for odd angles, chimping, and menu diving. I know the street guys prefer the tilt but I've gotten used to the flip screen.
