Shoot from the Hip with Flipbac

Flipbac is an angle viewfinder and LCD screen protector for digital cameras, both SLRs and point-and-shoots. It will help you snap photos without kneeling, take candid portraits without hiding your face behind a camera, or capture a classic portrait.
There are many situations in which the Flipbac gives you and your pictures unique perspectives:
* Easy low angle or ground level shooting
* Shoot accurately from unique positions: ground level, waist level or overhead
* Capture natural, relaxed portraits
* Excellent LCD screen protector when not in use
* Opens to more than 180 degrees in both landscape and portrait positions
* Fits most digital point-and-shoot and digital SLR cameras with a 3-inch live view LCD
* US$19.99, plus US$5 shipping worldwide
Camera Models
While the Flipbac is shown below on a Nikon D300, it will fit on hundreds of cameras. However, the Flipbac is not designed to work with LCDs with swivel or flip-up screens.

Flipbac is perfect for digital cameras with a 3-inch LCD display with live view. For the best fit, your camera’s LCD screen should be about 67mm x 52mm ( 2 5/8 “x 2 1/16”). Most digital cameras have either a 2.5 inch or 3 inch LCD. First compare the measurements below to the camera’s LCD screen size.
We are producing a 2.5 inch model. If you would like us to notify you when it is available please email [email protected] .
