So, I recently got a Nikon Coolpix L830.  My original reason for buying it was because it had a screen that swiveled.  I was under the impression that this screen flipped out, but it does not.  I should have done more research, but that's on me.  


Anyway, I film videos for youtube and I like to be able to see myself while filming (hence why I like the flip out lcd screen).  Is there a way for me to attach something external to use as a viewfinder so that I can see the video while it is being filmed?


Or do you have any suggestions for a different camera that has this that will not cost me an arm and a leg?

A mirror behind the camera so you can see the screen? (Or 2 mirrors if you want to see it the right wway round)

Will connecting it via the USB to a computer help at all (I have no idea)?.
