Confirmed: The Sony Alpha 350 is perfect for crotch-shots, limited only by the LCD's viewing angle, which is good, but not great. They weirdly didn't have the A300, but the A350 is the exact same, except for MP count—even the Sony rep said so. I'm honestly not too big on the body otherwise—too many buttons on maybe?—so I'm not sure the up-and-down LCD is going to sway me. Fujifilms' S100FS has one too, plus the awesome ISO performance, so it might be better suited to "dark" purposes. I'm gonna Battlemodo 'em later tonight.
Having a lot of buttons is only a disadvantage when you're first getting used to a camera, I think. It actually makes for much more speed and precision later, when functionality is as directly exposed as possible, and you don't need to go through interminable menu layers to change a specific setting before getting the shot.
