Canon LCD Optical Glass Screen Protector,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: GGS LCD Protector glass for CANON EOS 450D 500D T1i XSi (Camera)The LCD glass protector is worth its weight in gold. Recently my Canon XT1 was lying on the back seat during a wildlife shoot. I had to make a sudden, hard stop and the camera tumbled off of the seat onto the floor with a heavy 100-400 lens attached to it. The camera must have landed on the LCD screen because when I inspected it for damage the camera screen was broken and the edges were chipped off.
I thought the damage was to the Canon's LCD screen but when I pulled the GGS DSLR Optical Glass Screen Protector off the LCD did not have a single mark on it. The glass screen protector had taken the impact and saved the Canon's LCD screen. Maybe this was because it sticks out just the thickness of a playing card or maybe because the self-adhering tape on the optcal glass protector held it in place during the fall.
Whatever the reason I immediately replaced the GGS DSLR Optical Glass Screen Protector with a new one. I would rather replace these all day than to have to send my new Canon XT1 to be repaired.
Also, I will never, ever place my camera on the seat again! Further, the Canon XT1 and the Canon 100-400MM lens were both still working very well! This demonstrates the durability of the Canon line of cameras and lens.

The extremely thin glass does break easily upon impact, sometimes giving the false impression that it saved the LCD screen from a similar fate. Of course, one can't know for sure what damage, if any, the LCD screen would have suffered. However, it would likely not have shattered or cracked after falling off a car seat. Still, it's easier to replace a thin cover!
