Excerpt: This is such a simple yet necessary item. I had to original one that came with my D70 for 5 years before someone else used my camera and lost it. You NEED it to protect the display. I wouldn't be without it.You may want to also get a popup cover for outdoor shooting in sunlight but you will still need this one.
Excerpt: What more can a piece of clear plastic do? It protects the LCD screen from dust, sand, dirt, and scratches. One issue (and it's probably my fault): when I hold the camera in the vertical position, I end up breathing on the cover and it fogs up both the cover and the LCD screen. Takes a while to clear out since the screen protector has such a close fit.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Improves Product Function, Lightweight
