| p.1 #6 · 5dmk3 screen protection |
I ordered a GGS protector in the end (the latest pro version which has a thin plastic edge frame as added protection) BTW I did break a Giottos one on the 5D2 on the extreme corner so the thin plastic frame on the GGS might work out as an advantage because they do tend to be vunerable on the corners.
Anyway for those that might be considering a GGS, they are very well made and designed and have the added bomb proof layers that would keep them in one piece if broken and would probably avoid screen damage from a central blow that breaks them. Once fitted the screen looks fine, slightly raised from the original of course but with that rounded frame it looks quite nice( in fact my wife thinks it enhances the look so it must look good and as usual I must agree or else Out of doors shading the camera from the sun with my body after taking a shot I can see little if any difference between it and the Giottos. You also get a clear protector for the top lcd readout.
I do appreciate that people either see protecting the lcd as a must or not so you pays your money and take your choice.
Out of interest, I ride a fairly fast E bike and when young never did wear a crash helmet but after a friend slipped on some gravel and hit his head on a curb, destroyed the helmet, had a headache for the rest of the day but was out for a beer that same night I always wear mine now. Yeh! you can`t beat riding with the wind in your hair on a nice summers day providing you stay upright.
