Canon powershow hs sx50 mirrors the lcd screen when rotated towards viewer.

I just discovered something weird and something slightly annoying about this camera:

This canon powershow hs sx50 mirrors the lcd screen when it's rotated towards viewer.

It's really strange... 

I proved this by holding up a card with letters on it, when the LCD screen is "bend/twisted/rotated" suddenly the camera will mirror the LCD screen like you are looking in a mirror ?!

I find this quite fucking dumb... cause I wanna see my face as other people see it and they don't see it like I do when I look in the mirror...

So why the fuck do camera's LCD screens keep lying and mirror this LCD screen.

Electronics people never stop surprising me with their bullshit ?!

Unfucking real that such a thing has been implemented in this LCD screen.

I am not even sure if the manual mentions it...

Wow... it's only by chance I discovered this... was trying to figure out how people see the cut in my hair and this shit confused the shit out of me for a moment and then I proved... it actually mirrors it when rotated towards me so I can shoot and view at same time.

Very weird shit...

have you considered wohat would happen if you were to rotate the camera through 90 degrees (eg from portrait to landscape) wihout the mirroring this woauld cause the image to be displayed upside down. -- Jasen.
