I was thinking of buying an LCD screen protector for my new Canon EOS 40D, but after some research, it’s not necessary.
The LCD for the 40D isn’t responsive to touch like a PDA or iPhone — it’s already protected. Also, it’s a waste of money to buy those other protectors. You’ll sacrifice some screen visibility, and the replacement parts cost about $20 anyway.

One thought on “The Canon EOS 40D LCD screen is tough!”
I wholeheartedly disagree with your opinion. I just got back from a hike. My lcd has a nasty abraded spot on it. I don’t know how it happened. I didn’t see anything in my case that would do that, but something was sharp enough to cause this damage. I am wishing I had a protector on my lcd.
