Is the rear screen on the 6D user replaceable like the other Canon cameras? I'm not too sure if it's like the 5D3 and the glass is bonded to the LCD or not.

It is plastic, not glass. I don't know if it is do it yourself replaceable but it doesn't appear to be.

it just sits there with a strip of double sided foam around the edge. I can literally put my thumb on the back glass and wiggle it slightly. I know its replaceable.

Thanks. Have a part number by chance? Is it replaceable with a glass GGS? Anyone try this?

yes, U can replace with glass GGS. Normally, I put extra one layer on the screen protecter when get new camera. When accident happen, only external screen protecter broken, easier to replace.

Thanks Tat. To be clear I'm wondering if I can take the plastic Canon one off completely and just put a GGS on. Anyone know the best place to get a GGS screen?

My is already scratched too. It's much less scratch resistant then my 20d was. Will try to change it but I'd prefer to put on something more durable

the screen itself is called the TFT display window, part # CB3-9239-000

the double sided tape is basically that. TFT double sided tape, part # CB3-9240-000

I think the screen was like $13 and the tape was $2, but that part is blacked out on my invoice...

Thanks gnome. The double sided tape doesn't come pre-attached? Uggggh I'm so not good at putting that stuff on straight.

I would think you would want to put the tape on the body edge part where the glass fits. Makes it easier

it comes on a stiffer plastic "frame" sheet, for lack of a better word. You remove one side, and press the tape onto the rim. Once you do that, you then remove the remaining side of the tape. Its pretty easy, just take your time and make sure that when you apply the tape, to make sure that it is firmly pressed down into the rim before you remove the remaining side of the tape. Also note that the window has arrows on one side, and this is pretty much visible only when you remove the protective coating that it ships with. Arrows should point up, and be on the inside

Which is why I'm trying to figure out if I can just replace the plastic one with a GGS glass one.
