If you wished that Canon would introduce articulating LCD screens to its full-frame cameras, your wish could soon be granted. In a report from Canon Rumors, they have heard from sources that the upcoming Canon EOS 6D MK II could indeed be packing an articulating LCD called the Vari-Angle LCD.

This is an LCD that Canon has used in its other cameras in the past, although it seems that this is the first time that Canon could potentially introduce it to a full-frame camera. No doubt this will be highly useful for photography as it will let photographers get down and low and at weird angles to capture what they want.

However the downside to having such a display is that there are more moving parts and exposed areas of weakness that could lead to the display being damaged, or its hinge getting  broken and the display coming off, but we guess the onus is on the photographer to be more careful with their gear.

Other rumored features include WiFi, Bluetooth, and it will apparently be taller and sport a deeper body compared to the current EOS 6D. The announcement of the camera is said to take place in July but until we hear or see it for ourselves, remember to take it with a grain of salt.
