"Which GGS?"


Round Rock, US
          

Considering that there is a lot of screen real estate to protect now that I've upgraded from a D50, I'm contemplating better screen protection (a much more durable solution than the plastic protector). There seem to be several different versions of the GGS protectors that would fit the D7000. Any thoughts as to which are most recommended?

-Adhesive based applied directly to screen
-Clip-on D90 version w/o integrated viewfinder coverage
-Clip-on D7000 version w/extension to cover viewfinder

Thanks!

Scott

No experience but, I'm not sure I would want anything covering the viewfinder? The viewfinder is so important, I wouldn't want to lose any visibility. Would be interested to hear any user comments.

I have an adhesive Korean LCD cover, I don't think it's GGS but it works great.

Agreed. That's what I was thinking, and one of the reason's I thought I'd ask. I've never had any problems protecting the viewfinder, or thought it to be in peril.

I always had an GGS on my cameras. The one adhesive applied directly on the screen. It's just perfect, does not obstruct the view like the original screen protector does, it's like invisible. Easy to clean. I can't tell you how good the protection is, I never dropped the camera. Also, one thing, for some is important, for me does not matter at all: it will cover the "Nikon" writing you have on your LCD, and will show the GGS.

I use to buy it from ebay, but coming from China it will take a good two weeks, so for my D300 I got it from amazon, same price for me, I have the amazon prime, so I did not pay shipping.

Well, I've tried both the GGS clip on and the stick on, and have to say that I much prefer the stick-on kind. I was never confident that the clip-on kind wouldn't just pop off, and definitely felt like it decreased visibility, or at the very least affected off-axis viewing.

The stick-on kind seemed to have zero effect on visibility.

Just thought I'd provide an update.

Yep, I'd even go so far as to say much improved visibility as compared to the factory-supplied one.

I put a Giottos SP8302 glass screen protector on my D7000 today, and it is a great improvement over the plastic Nikon BM-11. I've used Giottos before and prefer them to others that I've tried.

Now, if Nikon would only use sapphire glass LCD monitors, we wouldn't need screen protectors.

I put a GGS stick-on version on my LCD's back and top. Great product, and yes, I think the view is improved over the plasic Nikon protector.

Rocky, thanks for recommending and mentioning the Giottos model number. Mine arrived today and I am really impressed with the perfect fit on my D7000. Visibility is much better than the plastic Nikon BM-11.
