Worth Every Penny

I was a little doubtful of the necessity of this cover but I decided to try it anyway. It worked as advertised. Make sure your camera screen is absolutely clear before applying! Six months later I tripped and my walking stick hit the screen hard enough to crack it. No damage to the camera. Without it my Canon D40 would have been in the shop for an expensive repair. I am now awaiting my replacement.

Too fragile to have any worth

Had this on a 40D and it broke after a minor bump. These things are very expensive and are not strong enough to provide any protection to your LCD screen. Not worth the $.

High Quality Screen Protector

By

from Chicago, IL  -  Semi-Professional

I purchased this screen protector for my Canon 5DmkII. It fits the screen well, is easy to install, and is crystal clear. Sure it's more expensive than other protectors, but that's because this isn't just a piece of plastic...it's a quality glass product. I've been using another Giottos protector on my 5D classic, and I've been really happy with it.

Great protection for the 5D LCD screen. Much clearer and more protective than any film.

Would not recommend

By

from Boston  -  Semi-Professional

This was a cheap looking and working piece of plastic that I was supposed to use on such expensive gear like a 5DMKII camera. It was way overpriced, too easily had air pocket ripple after carefully applying to screen, and the glare was not anything I would be satisfied with.

Great Screen Protector

Easy to apply, takes the worry about the possibility of rear LCD damage.

Bad experience

By

from Oregon  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I have purchased two of these. The first one was OK. I bought another for my 40D and it was worthless. It would not stay on the camera and I cleaned the area carefully before applying. I finally glued it but It was bumped when I was shooting a football game and it shattered. It was not hit hard enough that it should have broken and the LCD screen would have been fine. Never again.

nice protector glass

By

from Houston,TX  -  Semi-Professional

This is a good LCD protector. The only bad thing is that, it has to be cleaned more often than the LCD without it because it retains finger prints. But that is ok as long as it protects the camera's LCD

Protection Plus

By

from Temple, TX  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Provides great protection for the view screen of a DSLR from causal finger prints, scratches and light bumps.

great clarity, but marks up easily

By

from Cedar Falls, Iowa  -  Professional

Purchased for the Canon 5D Mark II. Fits great, a little thicker than I would prefer but the color and clarity are great. However, one big thing is that it gets finger prints and other grease marks easily, way more than the original camera screen.
