Anything like Kodak zi8 but with rotatable view finder?

Hi

I saw Marks post about creating video and his recommendation for the Kodak zi8, I just wondered if anybody knew of any thing similar but that had a rotatable view finder, but like the zi8 you could also use an external microphone.

Thanks

Hi TR,

I am a real camera buff and this is my advice to people considering these types of cams.
I use a normal JVC HD camcorder.
Mainly due to the fact it gives me really good video quality, zoom, sound and lcd swivel.
I can edit it on my PC and upload it to you tube etc if need be.

However some people do not want to lug around a little brick so they opt for a flipcam type vidcam.
I have seen a sony bloggie like this one that has a swivel and is small but not as small as the Kodak.

If you want something with reasonable video, sound and compactness you can not go past the Kodak.

Otherwise, If it were me and I wanted a swivel screen, I would go for a bigger vidcam like the JVC everio etc..

Regards
Troy
