60D Screen doesn't fold out far enough?

Has anyone else been having this problem? I've now had 2 of these cameras and both have the same issue - the articulated screen doesn't fold out on its hinge quite far enough - it's not quite 180 degrees. This is a problem as the irregular viewing angle makes it alot harder to judge when the horizon is level. Whilst this is manageable for static setups, when filming a walking/tracking shot from the hip for example it becomes alot more difficult to quickly compensate.

I've attached a couple of photos showing: the maximum extent to which the screen naturally folds out, and where ideally the screen should fold out to (and remain in place) to best help judge the horizon.

Does anyone else find this to be an issue or have any solutions?

Thanks,

Matt
