Nikon mirrorless camera with front facing LCD screen?

Does Nikon have any mirrorless cameras on the horizon with a front facing LCD screen?  I have a vlog I'm setting up where I'm going to be interviewing people.  Having that front facing screen will be helpful.

Not on higher end models I suspect!

Light is free… capturing it is not!

No. Tilt only.

Most camera manufacturers have an app that allows you to use your phone as a screen, which you can then attach to your camera using a bracket. There are also third party apps. I've never tried it myself, but have a look at some video tutorials to see if it's a viable option. From what I've seen, it's not going to be as responsive or live as a normal screen, but it can be useful to check focus before recording, for example.

But yeah, I think Canon have the only full frame mirrorless camera with a forward-facing screen at the moment.

Canon has a number of APS-C sensor models with a fully articulated screen, as well as the 6D mk II (full frame). For Nikon, only the D5xxx series has that feature.

Mirrorless, we presume you mean the Z series for Nikon, and no, there's no fully articulated screen on the Z6 or Z7.

Honestly, if you want to vlog, why look at either of those? Why not Panasonic? Better video, interchangeable lenses, all the features you need. Even 4K only requires, at best, a 12MP sensor. Or do you expect your video situation to be so extreme as to require extraordinary low-light capabilities? Or something else?

N.B. I'm a "right tool for the job" person, not a "latest and greatest" person.

1000% go for the GH5 from Panasonic.

But if you go with the GH5, the smaller sensor isn't good at low light and photos won't have resolution or sharpness from larger full frame options.

Have you ever shot with one? Just curious.
