    Smile EOS 30D newbie

    hello guys

    This is my first time posting a thread in here !
    For the past few weeks, i have be coming in here to read about canon DSLR, wondering which to invest, a 350D or a 30D, when the 400D came out, i was a bit excited about it.
    but when i really get to hold the 400D with my huge hands, my mind was set to get myself the 30D, this serves as a start in my photography journey and I finally bought my first DSLR, the 30D.
    I wish to thanks all fellow members who had shared their valuable opinion and i am truly grateful.
    I will be attending the pss courses in due time. can't wait to ultilise the 30D
    Cheers

    hey guys,

    I am wondering whether there is a need to use those protective LCD screen sticker, to protect against scratches ???? Like most of us who use it for our handphone ????
    i bought one today, but i screwed up, bubbles can been seen, so i am really thinking twice in getting anoter one, or maybe i ask those experience shop owner to paste it for me .
    Thanks for the advice

    I did attach the lcd screen sticker to my ex 300D, and i found it very useful, no complaint about bubbles at all. btw i'm going to get my 30D soon and i will definately attach the lcd screen sticker as well

    Yes, when you buy from the same shop, ask them to paste the LCD sticker for you. If got problem, they will give you a 2nd piece. If they ask you to pay for the spoilt 1st piece, complain to CASE and don't pay $$$ and walk away.

    There no need for the LCD screen protector. I was told that the LCD screen itself is already protected by a layer of clear plastic piece, when you send in for servicing Canon technicians will vacumn-suck out the plastic piece and replace it.

    But then again another layer of protection won't do you any harm, just let it be done by the shop sales so if any imperfection you know who to find!

    Why are getting worried over trivial things like that? Scratches are bound to come by be it the screen or anywhere on the camera. It would be more fulfilling to start learning how to make full use of your camera. You can start by reading the manual.

    hey guys,

    I did the LCD protector in sim lim yesterday, at the podium area. There is no exact size for my 30D, however the stall owner got me a bigger piece and cut it using the chopping board. It fit pretty okay. there isn't any blurry look for the preview though. Cost me $15.
    I was told that alan has the customised exact size screen protector at the price of $40. I am not sure how true it is ?
