You have guys ever use this XO skin before?

Is this easy to remove? will it leave any marks after removed?

Thanks, Dylan

Version 2 fits like a hand in a glove as Morrissey used to say :)
I don't know what version they sent me originally (perhaps a 7D) but this one is perfect on the top LCS and the back screen.
They went on a lot better too with next to no ripples or bubbles.
Knowing my luck the camera will get recalled tomorrow...

These XO skins do look nice. I have been looking for some decent protectors myself, but ended up with a protector that doesn't fight. Website says it's compatible with the Mk3, but the product package says 5D/5D-II. When holding the protector next to the LCD you can clearly see it's way too small.
Unfortunatly I do not have a creditcard and can't buy XO skins as they do not sell them in my country. Seems they are the only one with a screenprotector for the Mk3.... :(

Are there any other kinds of skins out there for the Mark III that don't involve liquids? I've used something similar to these XO things, called BestSkinsEver for like maybe my last 4-5 iPods that I have owned, however I find it a lot more difficult to use and it never comes out just perfect, be it super small air pockets that didn't squeegee out or whatever it is. I recently got a new iPhone that had some rigid protectors that attach to it, leave nothing behind, and have been exceedingly happy with those, but I would love to know if there are other options out there that you guys would recommend. I'm even down with the cutting to size, being an architectural student I have the whole Xacto knife, super precise cutting thing down to an art so yep :) Any other skins you would recommend?

I havent ever been happy with the hard plastic ones. They always end up peeling off and getting dust/dirt under them. Best skins are different. You use water, but they are super rubbery and have mad orange peel. I had a few bubbles after install with the xo, but after letting it dry for a day or two, everything goes away

Hey new guy here :)
Just been browsing the threads and reading a bit here and there.
Have a quick question about the post
I was wondering if it comes with the spray, or do soak it in water and soap?
Thanks for your help!

Hey Steve263, sorry for the delay. Been a while since I logged on. They come with spray, just a water/soap mix and a squeegee. I picked up a few micro fiber rags as well. They are cheaper there than anywhere. Costco used to sell big yellow ones, but I haven't seen them for a while.
