Canon 2000D

CanonRumors has just posted a rumor they received that the Canon 2000D will have an articulating screen.  The 2000D will be the replacement for the 1000D, or the Rebel XS as many know it by.

An articulating screen has been rumored to be coming on the Canon 60D, so it’ll be interesting to see if we see a 60D with an articulating screen first, or if we see a 2000D with an articulating screen first.

A lot of folks seem to think it will be the 2000D that gets the articulating screen first.

Frankly, it’s not a big deal for me.  First of all, I’d encourage anyone to pony up for the T2i over the XS level of Rebel anyday.  You just get TONS more camera for not a lot more money.  I’m REALLY liking my T2i!

Secondly, I owned the Nikon D5000 and didn’t really find the articulating screen all that impressive.  It didn’t really do anything for me.  As far as the Nikon D5000 was concerned, I missed the better LCD screen of my D90 and would’ve gladly traded the articulating screen for the D90′s better LCD.

So, what do you think?

Is an articulating LCD important to you?

Would you be willing to pay more for it if it was a question of the price being higher with it and lower without it?

Let’s hear your thoughts!

    An articulated screen is of great help for positionig camera in unusual positions, like above people for photographing events, on the branch for photographing birds, on the ground, etc. Having a srceen in any postion really makes life easier.
    The Nikon D5000 has done it completely wrong with the articulating axes below the screen, while the left axes would be much better.
    Another thing is using DSLR for video, like on any camcorder. Video exists, even if you don’t need it, so adjustable screen is a must.
    Obviousy there is the price like the smaller screen, but I would pay that price.
