I've been trying to find one of these for a long time, but have had zero success. Nothing can in the box. Where can I find one of those clear, plastic, protective covers for a 20D? thanks.

I live life on the edge.

I don't use LCD screen covers or uv filters on my lenses.

I play hard and take my chances.

There are hundreds to choose from on eBay. I wouldn't let my camera leave home without it.

Many people get a screen protector for a PDA (like a Palm Pilot) and cut them to fit.
Do realize that the plastic cover over the LCD is actually a protector and can be replaced fairly easily.

thanks guys, I'm talking about those hard plastic clip on type protectors. I've seen them on cameras, but have never been able to locate one. Thanks for any further help.

I have the Hoodman flip up and like it very much. It is very easy to install and stays snug. My problem was smudging the LCD from pressing my nose against it, which the Hoodman solves. The only limitation I have found is flipping the hood open and close to review image information while shooting can be inconvienent. I don't find that a problem because I don't review every shot.
