From the site


** Panasonic FZ28: Please note this camera has a 2.7 inch LCD. According
to
many happy customers, the Flipbac will fit on this camera, however, it is
a tighter
fit and therefore needs more careful alignment when applying to the
LCD. To read
customers' comments please see our Feedback page, as well
as this discussion
(with photos) on dpreview.com.

*** Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3: It does block about 1 mm of the view on
the sides in 3:2 and 16:9 aspect modes. If you shoot 4:3 more often then it is
not a problem. Read our personal experience using the LX3 or follow this
discussion
started by one of our customers on Flickr.com

The backwards orientation kind of threw me off when I use a compact mirror with my FZ1v2. It does work but I don't think I would want to put something like this on any of my cameras. I read the reviews on it from B&H.

does it just snap on and off or do you have to flip it down when using your camera for normal shooting? I think it would kind of get in the way if thats the case.
