Best $11 I have spent on camera gear....

Discussion in 'Other Cool Gear, Camera Bags, Camera Straps' started by RickW, Sep 17, 2008.

  1. I just received GGS glass covers for LCD screens on my D700. Perfect fit and world's better than the stupid plastic clip on covers that Nikon insists on putting on its cameras other than the D3.

    I have a D3 and love the fact that I don't need the cover. On my previous Nikon bodies (D2's), I used the Da Protectors which worked quite well. But the GGS unit is glass, not acrylic and the fastening system is easier to use.

    I cannot remember the last time I bought anything pertaining to Nikon that costs only $11.

    Perhaps Nikon ought to order a couple of hundred thousand of these things from Hong Kong (I am sure the price in bulk would be far less than $11) and just add the extra $11 (less the cost of the piece of cr*p plastic that they now install) to the cost of the D700? Reminds me of the days Nikon used to charge $4,000 for an F5 or D2h and include a garbage, white body cap in the box rather than a "real" black cap.

    I'm so glad I saw this thread. I have bought these twice for my D300's but now need them for the D700. Thanks for the reminder!

    Just to note, I installed my first GGS just slightly crooked on my D300. Being quite anal, I purchased another one and installed it more carefully.

    The first one came off with no problem using a credit card to work the edges, then a lens cleaner to remove the excess residue. Took about 5 minutes to remove the GGS and clean the factory glass. It can't be reused after removing it. It's also tough to break and scratch! (I did some experimentation since I couldn't reuse it.) ;-)

    Install it in a dust free area so you don't get dust between it and the factory glass.
     
  9. Next time you try to remove one, use dental floss instead of a credit card. Way easier.
