Okay dumb question but – it is hot in Minnesota and everytime I put the camera to my sweaty head sweet gets on the LCD and I have to wipe it down. Anyone use any protector sleeves or other products to keep the display clean? If so where can I buy it?

Same problem here at the moment (35C temp). I fitted a screen protector which is for aPDA. Just cut the film to size and apply. When it gets too dirty, peel off and fit another. about £4 in jessops for 3 films. So far I have done my PDA, and 3 camera screens.

I live in Minnesota, too, and I use the overlays they use on PDAs cut to size.

Same here. Those clear plastic sheets are cheap and I change them about every 6 month. The LCD stays in like now condition. The only thing I don't like about them is, that the LCD picture looks a little bit "fuzzy" - at least until youget used to it.

Are you left eye dominant? I am, and I leave noseprints on the LCD all the time... I'm buying one of those Delkin popup shades, not cheap, but it makes it look less digital too.

I have one of those Delkin eFilm covers, mostly to make my DS look like a film SLR in some situations where I don't want anyone to know I am shooting digital. It also helps outisde for viewing the screen when you want to review your shots.

$23 + $4 shipping!
