I ordered the XO skin and received it the other day and removed it hours later. I didn't like how it didn't cover up the entire screen. It's off by a few mm. Also I couldn't get rid of some air bubbles no matter how much I squeegeed it and waited for the bubbles to dissipate. The material felt solid though. 13 bucks down the drain. Looks like I'll go screen protectorless.

thanks for the heads up. i think im going to wait for a good brand to come out with one. will probably use a crappy one for now

XO is awesome. They are the new kids on the block... but they don't suck. Very good skin manufacturer. I have them on my 5DMKIII and they fit great.

How long did shipping take?

Takes about a day or two in the US. As for globally, I guess however fast USPS or FedEx ships and what you pay for. There are like 10 options

Does anyone know if Canon will be making an eyepiece extender for the 5D MK3, or if there are any 3rd party ones available right now?

Hey everyone, I just got some awesome screen protectors off of ebay shipped from Hong Kong.  They are perfect and includes a big one for the main screen and a small one for the smaller top LCD.  The typical kind of LCD screen protector, attaches via a thin silicone layer that doesn't leave a residue when removed.  Only costs $1 for one pair shipped, although I paid $3 for 5 pairs shipped.  Took maybe 2 weeks to get them.  They fit perfectly (just use a wet wipe before applying to avoid dust under the screen protector.  I'll take a pic if anyone wants to see it (not much to see though).

Yes, I found a few ones on Amazon.

I have tried the acrylic ones before, dust ends up getting pushed up under them and your screen ends up scratched anyway. They wet ones are made to cling to airplanes, they are significantly stronger.

The only protector I would even consider using would be the GGS glass ones. The plastic ones are terrible.

I don't plan on using any with my 5D3 though.

I've already scratched my unscratchable Bestskinsever protector. But at least it served it's purpose I suppose! Tip - don't rest your new 5D3 on your camera bag, as it just may fall off.

Xo has a lifetime warranty, so if anything does happen to it, you get a free replacement.

Thanks for posting.  These look pretty good.  I got the XO skins, but when I look at it on my LCD screen in a certain light, I can see a slight orange peel effect.  These look more like the Power Support skins that I've used previously on my iPhone and iPad.  I like the fact that you don't use water to apply and they are really inexpensive. I did use the GGS Glass protector on my 50D, but when I removed it (very carefully, I might add), it shattered.  Luckily, I didn't scratch my LCD, but I'm hesitant to use one again.

XO ones aren't plastic, they are polyurethane, like what the military uses.

 I couldn't find any company that offers a screen protector. So I used XOskins for my 5DMKIII. Ordered from them about a month ago and haven't had any problems with them at all. Was easy to install and affordable. Fitting was fine, don't know why people are saying theirs didn't fit 100%.
I jut wanted something to protect my camera and spending a few extra dollars defintely seemed worth it.

There's another thread on the same topic here:

Might be something relevant here for the OP.
