Thank goodness for screen protectors!

Took myself down to the loch today to try and catch some wind and waves. I caught a bit more wind than I expected when it blew the tripod into the camera as I was walking along.

One of the first things I do with anything that has a screen like this is put a protector on it and I'm so glad I kept with tradition this time. I've only had the camera a week and I'd have been devastated if it had been on the bare glass.

On your K3 too! What screen protectors did you get? Thanks.

The one on the camera is from Germany via Amazon but apart from the fact that it saved my lcd I wouldn't recommend it. There were two in the pack and they were a fraction too long so the first attempt to fit ended up in a wasted protector as it wouldn't lie flat. I cut half a mil off the next one and it fitted ok. I've got others coming from eBay which include a top lcd protector as well.

My old K-r had a glass GGS protector on it but there's none available for the K3 yet.

I'll recommend these again, they were great on the K5 bodies but I just wonder if they will be as good on the K3 given that the LCD is gapless/airless.
LBA is good for you, a Lens a day helps you work, rest and play.

I have just received acmaxx through for my k3, yet to fit though tomorrow that will be done once I'm sober enough.

Woo hoo for screen protectors
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.

Fitted the acmaxx today both fitted well, top screen sits on-top of the LCD as would be expected the rear screan fits inside of the recessed area so adheres to the actual screen (whereas the GGS on my K-r adhered to the body around the screen), anyway it is a good fit size wise, and seems like it will do its job, just a shame on the silver coloured trim (could've done without that bit of bling).

Never used screen protector before, may be I need to consider one.
