LCD Screen Protectors - Photography

I've noticed sellers on eBay offering LCD screen protectors. I assume these are some sort of plastic film that prevents grease and fingerprint marks. Are these really worth the money they're asking? GBP 5.00/USD 8.00 seems a little excessive or am I missing something. I can see they'd be useful for not getting the screen scratched by continual over-cleaning etc. Are they to be recommended? Or even better, is there a cheaper alternative that users have found? Cheers, Karl. -- Preston. UK....

    Depends upon your camera. I have a Nikon 4500.
    I got custom made a little bit of glass and glued it on top of my LCD
    panel. On the 4500 this is easy to do since it has a depression a couple
    of mm to each side of the LCD screen. It works very well and now i do
    not have to worry when i slip the camera in my pocket :)

    Hi,
    I bought those pieces of plastic film you can get for Palm and other PDAs
    and applied it on the LCD. It made it fuzzy and I decided to take it off.
    Just wasted $20 that I spent on the film.

    Roger-
    What I have been using flawlessly for at least a year is what the other poster
    uses-- window decal sheets. I bought a pack of Royal Brite window decal sheets,
    there are 15 sheets for like I can't remember exactly maybe $8 or so. But it
    will last me indefinitley. What I did is measure my lcd screen and cut up a
    sheet to just a hair smaller than my screen size. A tip here is to put one
    SMALL drop of water on the screen and you can slide that decal (emulsion side
    up) exactly where you want it. I also after it sets up for a minute take a damp
    cloth and wipe off the emulsion, it is then crystal clear and IMO much tougher
    than the softer stretchier plastic film. It also peels off nicely.

    In the US, you can get a solid plastic protector that is sized for your
    camera from www.daproducts.com. Mine cost $10, including shipping. I don't
    know if they ship to UK. If not, perhaps you know someone in the US to send
    it to, who'll send it on to you.

    My decal sheets were made by Xerox but anybody's should work. Easy
    to cut with scissors and then just squeegee the bubbles out. Doesn't
    seem to degrade the picture quality and sure keeps the gunk off the
    screen.

    Yep, Wallmart and Target even has them. There are quite a few different brands
    with different quantities and prices per pack but any should work.
