I would like a very large (3-4 inch) screen placed like a waist level finder, to be able to compose like a TLR. Also, a square image sensor to go with it.

Why not combine it with the remote control? That would be the best form of live view....

I went with the removable. As there is times I would like to have a look down on like a medium format.

I've actually wondered if they could make the built in view finder have a twist, angle part of it 45 degree for a joint. So normal mode, it looks like our normal camera. But you grab it and rotate it 180 degrees, now it's pointing upwards, so you have a right angle finder built in. That could largely serve the place of some view finder options.

Ability to view live with a remote screen or on a computer would also be good, but sony's don't have said tech right now in the LV department. Remote usage is the main reason I can see for LV.
