What are these things covering the LCD?
Was wondering if anyone knew. Thanks

Second opinion... I don't know, but it looks like an articulated screen like on the 60D but not sideways.

Nothing. The one with the 70-200 attached is a 60D with an articulated screen.

Indeed?  Evidently you're seeing several things that aren't there...  First off, there's no 70-200 in the pic, the white lens is a 100-400mm.  Second, the camera attached to the white lens has a multicontroller (aka joystick), which the 60D does not, and also lacks a popup flash. 

I still don't know what the accessory is, but I wanted to correct obvious mistakes...
