As I am going through the manual testing my new EOS 80D it occurred to me that I should get a protective screen for the LCD panel.
So I started reading reviews of such screens and I found this...
"I used to go through these like cupcakes, I would at least break 2 or 3 each season; I finally said that's it! How much can I spend replacing these things. Well, not long ago I bumped my camera into something and I cracked my LCD screen (at least that's what I thought at first). I got home I looked at my LCD with great sadness and all of the sudden I had a Eureka moment. It turns out the Canon cameras come with a protective screen and what I have cracked was not the actual LCD but the Canon's protective screen. I was spending all this money to protect the protecting screen. I called Canon and it turns out the original screen that was on my 5d is half of what the xxxxxx costs. I think a lot of people place these on their camera thinking that it protect the LCD but in fact it was installed on the original protective screen which is way stronger and more scratch resistant. I think there is a slight misunderstanding on the part of xxxxxx; it should say it is a replacement for the original Canon protective screen if you want a part that's not an OEM. I guess you learn something everyday. Hope you guys find this review helpful."
Can anyone here tell me if this is true for the 80D, that there is already a protective screen on top of the LCD ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Years ago while waiting online in a camera store (back when such things existed) I met a photojournalist.
While chatting, he described to me how many times he had decapitated his SLR by accidently banging his shoe mount flash into something hard and solid. He was a VIP at the repair facility. 🙂 LOL !
