Default Anybody buy those LCD Protectors For Your Camera Screens??

I want to get some of these, but not sure if they are any good or if the residue will ruin my lcd screen. Anybody use these? These are the ones I'm looking at. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=15215 What do you guys use and are all the lens cleaning kits the same, or is one better than the other?

I use one like that on flash LCD and at the top of my Nikon D100. This way the LCDs are non-scrathed when I sell my equipment to buy new.

If you want good protection go to this site and look at these. I have them on all 5 of my Sony camera's. These not only protect your LCD from scratches but from breakage.

I just bought the Optex LCD Screen Protector kit.
Has 3 protector sheets you cut to size, 2 damp cloths,
and 2 dry clothes. Haven't tried it yet though.
Was $9.99 at Henry's.

I would think twice before getting a cheaper brand of LCD screen Protector. I just purchased ($9.99) Digital Camera Universal Screen Protectors (Sakar products) at the local Staples. It rendered the LCD screen useless when outside. All I could see was a reflection of myself. lol I double checked and it was applied correctly. The sticky sidewas facing the screen. The side facing me was shiny!!! So much for glare control. I'm almost gun shy to try anything else.

I use the screen protectors for camera, It not only proctects, it also hides the

finger and nose prints off the screen. It also reduces the glare on the screen.

Hi Lanny,

Per your suggestion, I went to "'da Protector" site. The price is right, but the warranty disclaimer is a little scarry. What's your experience using 'da Protector in bright sunlight -- increased/decresed/no change toglare/reflections?

Thanks, Steve

I've used mine in bright sunlight & it's basically invisible. You're going to get the same problems in bright light as with any LCD screen.

Thanks Lanny! I'm thinking I might try a 'static cling' solution -- I'm primarilyconcerned about scratchingmy LCD.

BTW, I posted a few pics of several 'da protectors' at http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...t=da+Protector
