I have just got a D90 and I have to say that the std fitment looks like hell. It may do a 'good enough job' (although it is certainly not scratch resistant), but it looks like a POS. I bought some stiff stick-on covers for my D5000 when I got it, they are invisible, cost nearly nothing (£3 inc post for 5!) and I still have a bunch of them left because they seem to last forever. I'll get some for the D90 probably, but I reckon a company like Giottos would not put out a fragile screen cover.
Anyone using an aftermarket LCD monitor cover for D3 or D3s?(28 posts) (12 voices)
guys, check out the new ggs 111 covers, they snap on like the Nikon covers, so they are easy to remove and clean, and the edges are covered with plastic so they should last longer. Harder to break.
Got one for my D7000, however it is for the D90 and does not have the cut out on the right side for the multiselector, therefore it is a little close, but works and looks nice.
Edge are black so it matches, but has D90 printed on it, hopefully they brink out one to match the BD11/ D7000 soon.
Cheap and a good stand in ntil they make the correct model.
Adam let me tap the edge of a coin on the center of your glass cover and let me show you what I mean :-P
I'm not worried about the glass cover, Niko. I can pay a few £s/$s and get a new glass cover. The question is, does it protect the LCD screen?
And if you tap the edge of a coin on a cling-film protector? Does that protect the LCD any better? (A genuine question, not intended to be sarcastic)
Plus, breaking my screen is not my main worry; scratching (from, say, a zip) seems a much greater risk.
