I have the A65 and i must admit that the flip out screen in the A65 is a bit awkward when using it because it is flipping down and not like the Canon to the side. Because when filming/ still shooting it is impossible to "self-shooting" when the A65 i placed on a tripod cause its screen is flipping downwards! So guys have this in mind because I really miss, wish it was like the Canon 500,550,650 etc in right this point. But in many other ways A65 still has significantly better features than 650D
