Articulating screen - is it useful in a DSLR

The above photo was posted by Sudhir Shivaram in his Facebook page. (imgae link) My interest was immediately piqued. I understand the pain of looking through the eyepiece at such low angle (think macro photos). So I wanted to know what wildlife pro photogs thought about an articulating screen.

The following conversation took place based on my question.

The gist of the conversation – Yes, articulating screen is useful. But remember to put the mirror in lock up and use a remote trigger to fire the shutter. That way there is no shutter lag created by the live view mode.

Sudhir responded to my request forĀ a comment. Here is his response.
