    need a lcd screen protector for my Canon 5D but not sure which one to buy?

    I searched BH and the only one I found for the 5D is the Giottos which is a stick on protector seen here http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/483866-REG/Giottos_SP8253_SP8253_AEGIS_Professional_Glass.html. Anyone know anything about it? Are there any others that I should look into?

    I have used them on my schools Nikon D200 which clipped right onto the back of the body. Doesn't look like my 5D has that option.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    I have the Giottos protector on mine... it has "schott glass" written on it. I have yet to find one that comes close to the quality.

    What about those flippy thingers?
    Screen shades I think they're called. That would probably be a good idea also.

    The consensus I've heard from the guinea pigs that tried those flipping screen shade things found them a bit annoying.

    I've never actually heard about anyone who has damaged their LCD screen on a DLSR with normal use. There already is a fairly tough protective cover over the actual screen.

    I have heard (but can't confirm) that the actual replacement screen cover on these cameras is actually fairly inexpensive...if you do somehow damage it.
