Hi,

Has any of you proud 1DX owner installed a screen protector for the back LCD?

I was looking for the following product on eBay for the 5DM3:

And wondering if it fits for the 1DX too, since there's apparently no model available yet for it?

Thanks

Although the picture of the item is not shown on a 1dx, the manufacturers website does list them.

I have Kenko LCD Monitor Protection Film for the Canon EOS 1DX on my 1DX.
It comes with 3 films for main, top and rear LCDs and costs around $15.90.
I am very satisfied with it.:lol:

I just used one of the Zagg films for the iPhone and cut it to fit the 1DX. Sooner or later they will have the 1DX version but at least I'm protected until then. It is very transparent. So far so good...

Have one of these on my phone as well.
Will be great once a custom one is made for the 1DX as well.

All canon screens have the protectors. It's glued glass piece. Replacement is about 15-45$. You are basically putting protector over protector.

From what I read, the new 5DM3 and 1DX body has a new LCD setup that makes replacement much more difficult and expensive, hence a a protector makes sense where in the last it wasn't.

Here is parts diagram http://www.filefactory​.com/file/5xv7yvbqr99x (external link) for 5dm3 - on page 12 - actual TFT assemble is different from TFT window

I finally received it today, and installed it on my 1DX.

IMAGE: http://i.imgur.com/ypMQQ.jpg

It comes with 3 screen protector - 2 hard glass sheets, perfectly cut for the back and top LCD and a small plastic film cut out for the rear lcd (displaying the card info).

The small rear film cut out is a bit useless in my opinion, but the 2 hard glass sheets are great.

They don't actually touch the LCD, and just glue around it, so you don't have to worry about bubbles forming. Even if I press on the screen, it doesn't touch.

The back LCD protector covers a bit the Canon logo, but it has the great advantage of also covering the small gap between the LCD and the body, which somehow was always accumulating small sand grain.

The protectors are very reflective, so it might bother some, but it seems that it makes the LCD look even better, if that's possible.

Overall, I'd recommend it, and I'm happy I bought it.

Kirill,

Obviously there are people out there who want to protect the protector. I don't understand the logic either, if it came without one as standard, then yes I'd get it. But to duplicate what Canon have already fitted, why?

Because it's much cheaper and easier to replace a scratched or broken protector, than to replace the camera factory LCD cover?

Plus, as I said, the protectors goes over the gap between the LCD and body, so it prevents dust from accumulating there.

I think the "protector" craze came after Nikon shiped some pro body with an external cover - suddenly everybody had to have one.
