      This glass protector perfectly covers the stock LCD screen protector in the Canon 5D MkII. In fact, it almost seems like the same exact thing, with the addition of some double-sided tape along the edges.

      Mounting the protector onto the camera is simpl:

      -Clean the camera's viewscreen thoroughly. I used the same cleaner and cloth as I use for my eyeglasses. Make sure every last speck of dust is removed from the screen.

      -Peel the protective paper off of the back of the screen protector.

      -Line up the edges of the screen protector with the edges of the camera's screen (not the edge of the viewable area, but the edge of the plastic, a few mm out from the viewable area). Let the screen protector "settle" onto the camera, but don' press it down yet!

      -Inspect the edges for good alignment. It doesn't need to be perfect, it just needs to comply with your personal level of acceptability. If you need yo adjust it, carefully lift the edge of the frame up with a pen knife or similar, reposition it, and let it settle against the camera again.

      -When you're satisfied with the positioning, press the edges down, all the way around the frame. It should be tight all the way around, with no gaps.

      Once mounted, the protector looks almost stock. It adds virtually no bulk to the camera at all.

      The build quality seems at least as good as the stock Canon protector (which can be replaced by the end user for just a little more than the cost of the Vello--you have to buy the part directly from Canon).

      It's not going to stop a penetrating blow from a table corner (for example), but it will collect the scrapes and scratches of everyday use, and absorb the damage from a fall or compression in airline luggage or a backpack. I mean, it will break, but should protect the stock screen protector. Then, just carefully remove the peices, peel off the frame and repeat the mounting process for the next one.

      It gives me a little peace of mind to know that I can grab the camera out of the bag, cram it back in, let it hang over my shoulder, let people touch and poke the screen (It's NOT an iPhone, people!) and not worry as much about zippers or keys or belt buckles or rings, and to know that if it does break in the field, I can peel it off and still have a perfectly good screen to work with until I can get home or to a camera store to get a replacement.

      One Con, if you can call it that: When properly mounted, the screen protector will cover the Canon logo on the back with its own Vello logo. I would have given an extra star if it had NO logo, but that's just my issue.

      This is the first time trying a glass protector and I found it to be a bit too fragile for my use. I know that it's only glass, but after just two weeks, it cracked while in my camera case (a carabiner pressed up against it). Granted, I do alot of backcountry and high elevation photography so I am pretty rough on my gear. But I feel that it cracked a bit too easily. I'm going plastic with my next one.

      ***I do want to make a note that if you are shooting in a bit more of a controlled setting, it's a great way to protect your screen. Just be careful if you treat your camera like a piece of gear.***

              This is exactly what the name says it is. It is a LCD Screen Protector and it does the job as intended. Nothing special about it. It just does what it is suppose to do.

                  This screen protector is of great quality and was very easy to stick to my screen. My last screen protector was by Giottos and lasted two years before it cracked, hopefully this one is as good or better.

                            Great screen cover. The glass model is worth the extra dollars. Fits perfectly over the screen and looks like it is meant to be there. Doesn't interfere with any any controls etc.

                              ITS WORKING WELL.

                              I THINK EVERYONE SHOULD VISIT YOUR STORE TO SEE IT IN PERSON. YOU HAVE ALL THE PRODUCTS ON DISPLAY AND CUSTOMERS CAN HOLD AND TRY THESE PRODUCTS. ITS SAVES A LOT OF TIME MAKING A DECISION ON WHAT TO BUY.

                              YOUR EXPERTS GAVE ME INFORMATION ON THE LATEST VIDEO CAMERAS (3CHIPS) AND SHOOT GUN MICROPHONES. I'M LOOKING TO PURCHASE BOTH.

                                Knowing the Vello GSP-5DII is preventing "normal" wear and tear to the LCD screen of my nice new Canon 5D Mark II, $[$] seems like a great investment. I don't even want to know how much it'd cost to have that screen replaced.That being said, the screen protector practically goes unnoticed given its small, sleek design. Vello did a good job ensuring the screen protector is exactly the same size and looks like a factory component which came with the camera. I'm happy with the look and feel of it.A few pointers on installing it. Make sure you clean your LCD screen first and the area you are in is relatively clean and dust free. I feel that in order to get the best adhesion and clearest look, you want to get it correctly positioned and adhered on the first attempt. If it's not aligned properly or has a stray hair underneath it once you've installed it, good luck getting it off and back on again without it being somewhat degraded. Other than that, piece of cake.I'd comfortably recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a nice clean, factory looking screen protector. I'd also buy it over again if I needed another one.

                                        Fully covers screen. What else do you want?

                                          i use it on a 6d so the fit isn't perfect, but the way it works, even if not an exact fit for the camera screen, still covers evenly and more than adequately - in other words, doesn't appear to be misplaced. they apparently haven't made a model yet for the new 6d. multi-layer glass so actually better feel and 'quality' than the plastic surface of the 6d screen. worth the price. also bought for my 5diii and that model fits like a glove, since that one was made specifically for that model.
