LOL, yeah I can just see that now. Seriously officer, I was hired to take pictures of the children.

I usually flip out the screen 180 degrees on my 60D when taking photos through the viewfinder. It keeps my screen clean all the time.

That´s one of the great things about having the flip screen, you can flip it down and safe it from scratches when travelling with the camera or flip it out while shooting to keep it clean.

Lore & Dr.D you two are too funny… that’s great…in a creepy way.

Jay125 I have started doing that as well (left eye) but there was another post were the “Photographic community” seem to belittle this approach. I personally don’t give a crap what I look like as long as I get the picture.

I have always used my left eye. My screens don't often get greased up by my face or nose, just fingerprints.

+1 on the Zagg Invisible Shield and Clear Coat (Zagg knock off).
Both do a great job on scrathes on the LCD and also on what is referred to here as "Nose Grease".
Don't have to constantly clean the LCD after a few shots.

I shoot with my left eye and I wear glasses. I smudge both my LCD and the right lens on my glasses every time I shoot. I've been seriously contemplating getting contacts since it's annoying to look up and find I can't see well out of my right side.

yep, you read that right.

so how i keep my greasy cheeks from dirtying up my lcd screen when using the view finder. Yeah i know i can turn it in an close it.

Which is what I do to avoid the problem. Perhaps you just need to avoid chimping quite as much.

^ this. same here shoot w/ left eye, wear glasses, smudging up lcd & glasses ;) I've tried every brand of contact out there, all of em turn my eyes red within hours... :( up the power on the viewfinder diopter so it can be adjusted abit higher & I'd be good to go :D

Hopefully, I can get contacts that work for me. I do wish getting the cotacts fitted wasn't so expensive, though.

This happens to me a lot too. The only advice is to have a cloth on you like others have said. Using a screen protector is never a bad idea. I wouldn't buy anything expensive though. I got 3 no-name for 1$ on eBay and they work great. I have never had an issue with clarity or reflections.
