"LCD Protector for D7000"

I had this on my Olympus E-30 and was very happy.

Found it for the D7000 with TWO protectors for both LCD's

Can you compare the "look" or view of images between the glass protector and the plastic snap-on one Nikon supplies. I'm toying with making a change.

Hi Bill

I have attached a couple of pictures of the screen on my D7K below (sorry about the quality, my iPhone was all I had to hand). It should give you a rough idea.

It's hard to compare with the Nikon clip-on cover as I have only had my camera for a couple of weeks. The real test is a few months down the line when the Nikon cover becomes scratched (which, as you probably know, is very easy to do) or gets grit wedged in between that and the screen.

It is similar to the Giottos screen I have on my D200, which has gone through hell and back yet still looks awesome! There appears to be no degradation in the screen image quality and it fits perfectly.

I would imagine the real test will be 6-12 months down the line to really see if the screen holds up well to abuse. At the moment, it is looking good.

Any other questions, feel free to ask!

I had the Giottos on my D-90 which I just sold. It was on for over two years and still in perfect condition. That said, it appears in OP that the package has two screen protectors ie top and back. I looked on their site and only see one pkg., for the back. Where did you get it from.?

The high transparency is probably the key factor coming with it, besides there is no influence of ultraviolet light/high-low temperature, well 7H hardness (truly hard and lasting). I prefer GGS lll which uses no adhesive material and it’s easy to remove. But it's not like GSS causes much of problem with its adhesive border. More caution needed removing GSS - don’t lift the corners hard but use sliding thin card (or plastic) around the edges style. GGS lll is still not out for d7000 but d90 (or d700 I guess too) fits precisely so. Just the little logo is different. I expect d7000 version out any time. The original Nikon plastic cover reduces visual quality of display considerably in comparison. The glass is impact resistant. I buy it from the US, haven't found source in the UK.

Best,

Hynek

Thanks Brian..
This is the GGS original version, I use the last GGS lll (non sticky one). Perhaps is due soon in the UK too from somewhere, I'll need it straight after it's out though thus reckoning on the US purchase.

Thanks again,

Cameraclean also offer the "third generation" protectors. I'm sure they will have the D7000 version for sale as soon as it arrives in the UK.

That is excellent.. I see it now. It’s mostly advertised more loud, looks like very creditable site to remember.

Although I haven't seen it first hand, I hear the GGS III for the D90 'fits the D7000 like a glove', anyone actually tried it?

Hi gregeh,

yes it looks like a common practice. I know for a fact it fits as firm as it does on d90 – I clicked it on myself. My GGS got broken on an emergency when I was removing all parts of the camera – my d90 with 16-35/4 got under water bath for 2 seconds – to achieve best drying effect possible. An accident I described a few times elsewhere led me to act immediately as for card, lens and eventually the camera. That’s the reason I use only click on version since. There was a high time to order them so I checked the d90’s one on d7000. My plans got changed due to weather and we can afford waiting – and ideally get the d7000 one I’d prefer. There are other parts in question though not interesting for me at the moment but there may be a slight change in the shape of the outer part of the frame (lcd cover) too. If you are not bothered or need a solution the cover fits d7000 perfect. Once you experienced the GGS you don’t think of using plastic ones.

Btw, the d90 got out with no harm whatsoever. Perhaps sort of dust seal on 2 year old camera helped too in places. It may be I was somewhat weakened by Lyme disease of which cure was just coming to the end – long time antibiotics etc (it wasn’t exactly early stage). And normally don’t fall into the rivers up to my neck on freezing mornings - the 16-35/4 absolutely fine as well as the sundisc 8 G card. But I and my wife did everything possible for it at the place - and then the d90 was kept under dust free conditions but in very dry environment - open as much as possible for a week.

Best,

Hynek

Hi Hynek,

Wow, sounds like quite a test for the D90 (water) and you (water and lime!). Hope you at least got the shot and have fully recovered.

Rgds ... Greg

Thanks Greg.. we just lost one day by this very happy overall (only dry thing for me was my wife’s sleeping dress) and the antibiotic course paid off thank God - fast action (infusions) at Cambridge Ward in particular. It's kind of a rarity at London hospitals, more seen in countryside regions and I guess in the US (the origin). I ignored symptoms long time.

The D90 version fits great on the D7000. But not perfect. It does interfere slightly with the operation of the multi-selector. I have pretty small hands and still have a little trouble pushing the left side of the selector.

I had a Zagg protector installed by the Zaqg guy at the mall, on a Panasonic G2, and fit was perfect, and extremely protective (even to key scratches).

Thinking of having the same done on my D7k, both LCDs. Anyone else done this yet?

TIA

Love Zagg covers on my MacBook Pro, iPhone, iPod, and iPad. If they make one for the 7000, I'm in!! 

What I have done, is to tie a small piece of fishing line from the LCD cover to the camera body. This puts a short leash on the LCD cover. I did this on my D70 and D80 and have never lost a protector.

The real question is: are these necessary any more? Do a web search on Gorilla Glass. It's a product out of Corning Glass that's being used widely on ton of the newest lcd devices. Both my new Nokia N8 and Dell Streak have them and it's an amazing product. They are both touch screen devices and I use them on a daily basis. Finger prints & smudges galore, but when you wipe them down they still look they just came out of the box - not a mark on them. The product is designed to take abuse.

So, the question is: does Nikon use this product on their displays? If so, you don't need any of these covers. If not, give them a call and tell them to.

BTW - I do have a set of these on my D200. Unless you look closely, you can't tell they're there. On the fence as to whether or not I should get them for my D7000 until I find out if it's already got Gorilla Glass.

Also, I'm not affiliated with Corning - just a happy customer.
