Panasonic G9 for selfies?

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 has a flexibly attached rear LCD. Indeed, this screen can be turned to be front-facing. It can, hence, be used to frame the shot when taking a selfie. Moreover, this functionality will also be highly appreciated by v-loggers, who can monitor the coverage of their footage while talking into the camera.

One useful feature of the G9 is a presence of a top-level LCD. While being, of course, smaller than the rear screen, the control panel conveys some of the essential shooting information and can be convenient for quick and easy settings verification.
