Sony RX100 MKII accessories?
« on: December 15, 2013, 03:25:47 PM »
I'm planning on purchasing the Sony RX100 MK II, and I'm looking for some advice on a LCD screen protector and lens filter. 

I'd like to purchase a LCD screen protector, and I'm considering the Giottos SP83015 LCD screen protector, which is supposed to fit the RX100, but the reviews on the B&H website state that the SP83015 does not fit the LCD screen exactly.  Is there a different Giottos model number that will fit the RX100 MK II better...how about the SP8306?

Also, does anyone have a recommendation for a lens filter for the RX100 MK II, or should I go without one?

Thanks

Dylan, thanks for the reply.  Does the Sony LCD protector have an anti-reflective coating i.e. how does it perform on sunny days with glare/reflections? 

I was leaning toward the Giottos LCD protector, because it has an anti-reflective coated, which is supposed to help cut down with the glare in sunlight.

thanks

I'm not sure it has anti-reflective, but I see fine outdoor.
