Actually, it's protecting the cover of the LCD. To me, anything that prevent it from scratches is good enough.

The cheap one is all right if you're not the clumsy sort :) It protects against minor nicks n scratches quite well.
Basically it's just a thin film of plastic, like your typical handphone screen protector.

The GGS one is actually thin glass, which (presumably) is tougher than plastic. Since it doesn't cost too much more than the cheap plastic one, I think this is worthwhile to get just as an added safety precaution.

I used the thin film type (similar to hand-phones) for many years. It never came off. Just shoot away, if it comes off just replace it. Focus in pictures, not on protecting consumer electronics.

after checking on past postings, it seem two userIDs are under same person, validating our rule of no clone accounts,
if there is no explanation by end of today, both accounts will be deregistered.

im using the hard screen protector..$20 from Sony. Dosent matter much i guess as long you are careful..Good enough to protect your screen from fingerprints/dust etc is ok already. Just ensure nothing sharp get onto it.

Huh? Don't understand your logic.
So you create 2 accounts (with different "real" names as well) so that each account will get half the flaming for asking questions without prior searching? :bsmilie:

No,I am only worried that if i use a single name to ask for advice or tips under the newbie thread too often,i would be childed or flamed for being long-winded,etc...I really did not have any ill intentions by doing so and also not trying to pull off some kind of funny acts.Due to my ignorance & naiveness,if i have caused any misunderstanding,i am terribly sorry about the matter.i will not use cupid33 anymore.Hope the mods of CS can understand my standpoint here as i am still veri new to this forum.i have learned a lot from the mods,senior members as well as fellow Cs'ers...Just my moment of "stupidity".So sori about the whole issue & good day to all! Peace.

catchlights, i had some interaction with him through his stay here, though i dunno him personally.

having been a newbie in cs once, i can see where he's coming from. whether in cs or other forums, photography or otherwise, it's not new for newbies to get flamed. hence he thought of this idea.

i dun say i agree with what he does, nor that being new and not understanding rules is an excuse, i ask that he be given another chance.

through my previous pm exchange with him, he seem more like a enthusiastic newbie threading carefully in unknown waters more than one with malicious intent.

and my apologies if i spoke out of place. i just thought marcus, or cupid, deserves a place amongst us.
