    Finally! A screen protector that is the right size for a Canon 5d MkIII.

    It was a little tricky to get the alignment just right when sticking it over the camera's LCD display. I suggest washing hands to get oils off skin before attaching to camera. Also, install it in a well-lit area so you can get the positioning just right.

    When in place, it does not seem to degrade my view of the LCD in any way. It might even make viewing the display a little easier when outdoors.

    Finger and nose prints are very visible on the viewing surface, but the original LCD display surface was the same way.

    It does seem to add protection for the LCD display, but I hope I never have to test that feature. It wasn't terribly expensive for the peace of mind it provides in my opinion. To me, this appears to be a well-made, quality product.

    It probably won't be easy to remove the protector, but I will hopefully never need to do that.

    I am a professional photojournalist working at a newspaper in one of the most dangerous areas of the US.
    I chose this because it seemed like an easy unnoticeable product on a camera to safeguard the glass.
    I had a hard time getting it to lay perfectly on the glass while installing it, had to take it off multiple times and reset it ( i am a perfectionist anyway).
    I had this one my camera one week and its already cracked. I think the type of glass they use just chips easily.

      I purchased this for protection of the LCD screen on my 1D X and have found it works great. It's easy to apply, fits perfectly and has lived up to my expectations. So far it has worked well. I do treat my equipment carefully but in case I may be clumsy the Giottos LCD Screen Protector gives me added "insurance".

      Comments about Giottos Aegis Professional M-C Schott Glass LCD Screen Protector for Canon EOS 5D Mark III / 1D X:

      This was a beautiful addition to my screen. Easy to clean, brilliant to look through. I loved having the confidence the protection offered. But like many other reviews said, it just didn't last long...not nearly long enough to justify the price. Mine made it longer than many reviewers but was cracked within six weeks. Until they figure out how to make this more durable I see no reason to buy it again.

      Comments about Giottos Aegis Professional M-C Schott Glass LCD Screen Protector for Canon EOS 5D Mark III / 1D X:

      1) THE GOOD: This is the same quality glass as B+W filters, which I use. I found it easy to install on my 1Dx. It does what it's designed to do.
      2) THE BAD: It's very high priced for what it does. It only protects the main LCD screen, not the other two.
      3) THE UGLY: My screen cracked pretty easily (see photo). I had the camera hanging on my side and it just bumped a table. No hard impact,just the type of bump that happens every day. You can see my screen is fairly scratched from just normal use, even though there's not a scratch on the camera body. Too expensive for me to replace this screen everytime I bump the camera. On the other hand, better to crack this screen protector than replace the LCD screen.

        Read the instruction, have a clean room. If it's not straight you still have a second or third time like me, just don't press down hard until you are done. It looks dark but when you power the camera up you can see the difference how clear it is and much better out in the sunlight and then the main thing !(PROTECT YOUR CAMERA).

            Comments about Giottos Aegis Professional M-C Schott Glass LCD Screen Protector for Canon EOS 5D Mark III / 1D X:

            I've bought several of these screen protectors for my cameras. They don't scratch, are easy to clean, and on occasion prevent LCD screens from damage. Once I put one on my camera, and within a week it cracked after being struck. But the LCD screen was undamaged. Sizes may not match perfectly, so measure your screen carefully before you buy. Highly recommended.

                  I'm tough on my camera gear. After spending $170 on my S95 to $450 on my 5D MkIII to replace my LCD screens, I have now settled on spending a fraction of those amounts on these high-quaility glass protectors. This will make the 2nd time I"m replacing a glass protector on my 5d Mk III, and I think i've replaced it on my s95 3 times. LIke i said, I"m tough on gear.

                  I tell everyone I know to use these things. cheap insurance, no change in LCD readout (color, size, etc.)

                    First of all, what the hell is a "Casual Photographer" doing with a 1Dx? That's BS. Second of all, this is a decent thing for your camera. It did allow a lot of dust under it when I was shooting the Bonnaroo festival this year so I had to order a new one so I could clean the dust that got underneath it. It's good.

                    This is my second go with this product. First let me say it is of very high quality and easy to install. My dilemma is that I had this product in my camera for two days before it cracked and during those two days I only used the camera once. I'm not sure how it broke as I didn't notice anything until I pulled it out of the bag to use... So my question is;Did this expensive high quality product do exactly what it was suppose to do by protecting the camera screen???... Or is it extremely fragile and prone to easy breakage???The screen underneath the cracked protective glass was fine with no signs of scratching. My guess is that this was a freak out if the ordinary occurrence so I was willing to give it a second try, ( expensive second try)

                      If you spend $3000 on a pro camera body, just be smart and spend [$] on something that will undoubtly protect the LCD Screen. This is by far and away one of the best items you can buy for your camera.

                            Easy install, solid materials, great price.
                            I like the colors better than what is given through a "skin" of another manufacture.
                            Surface cleans up really well.

                            Comments about Giottos Aegis Professional M-C Schott Glass LCD Screen Protector for Canon EOS 5D Mark III / 1D X:

                            I was reluctant to spend the money, but now am glad I did. Here's why:
                            1) MY LCD screen was constantly getting smudges on it from my nose, which didn't clean off easily. Then I took my 1Dx to the beach and the LCD got scratches on it from the sand. You need to protect the LCD screen.
                            2) I tried using the film type LCD protectors, could never get rid of all the air bubbles, plus they scratch easily, too, and they do degrade the image you see on the LCD.
                            3) The Giottos is made with Schott glass, the same glass used in B+W filters, which I already use for my lenses. If you think B+W filters are worth the extra money, so is this.

                            Bottom line: Expensive protection, but cheaper than replacing the LCD screen! And it's the best you can get.

                                    The glass itself seems great. I was completely happy with the whole set up after I carefully applied it to the LCD in a clean, dry room before leaving to film in the South Pacific for 2 weeks. In the relentless sun of the atoll where I was filming, the whole thing popped off several times however (whenever I would use the external viewfinder, which was pulling on the Giottos via the magnetic frame I had attached on top of it). So- that wasn't great. It was just too hot for the Giottos to keep sticking when I used the viewfinder, and so bright that I had to use the external attachable viewfinder.
