Camera skin for 5D MK III
« on: September 05, 2013, 02:08:00 PM »
Anybody used this product to protect your 5D III ? It looks ugly to some but may be good for transport.

BTW, couldn't find a LCD screen protector for the top info plate. Where to find one please ?

I use GGS optical glass protectors from Amazon.com.  The 5DIII version includes a protector for the info LCD.

I have one of these. The hard screen cover it comes with sucks but beyond that it's amazing

I have no problem with the rear lcd screen protector but the top info lcd have some curve and glass protector won't fit. I broke one when trying to apply a little pressure on it. Will try the GGS you recommended. Thanks.

Hi Sama,
I bought one of these for my 40D, fitted it and hated the way it felt in the hand, can't really put a finger on what it was though, it fit real snug, did not slop around, did what it was meant to do! I just didn't like it, much prefered the feel of the bare camera. Also I wasn't convinced that it offered enough extra protection to justify putting up with the way it felt, I put it back in the box and put it on the shelf.
I do however keep looking at the box on the shelf and only a couple of days ago I thought I should try it again, thought as the 40D is now my backup to a 7D it might benefit from the extra protection.

I would see if you can hold a camera that is wearing one before you buy one as this is a very subjective item!

Hope this is of some help to you.

Cheers Graham.

Edit I also use the 2 piece GGS screen protectors on my cameras and found them a good fit and easy to apply.
