This review is from: Delkin Snug-It Pro Camera Skin for Canon 5D Mark III (DDSPROC5DM3) (Electronics)
I have had the Delkin Snug It Pro on my Canon T1i for the last two and a half years. I took it off for the first time the other day to double check one of the features of the camera that I wasn't aware of, and the camera still looks like it is *brand new*! I just purchased a Canon 5D Mark III and the first thing I did after I placed the order for my camera was...order a Delkin skin for it. It fits *perfectly* and all of the button features are marked (either embossed into the skin or they are raised) on the skin itself. You have easy access to everything that you need to gain access to, and your camera (including the hot shoe) is protected. Only two things I would change....on this model it doesn't have a clear skin that goes over the top LCD screen (which seemed odd as they fully protect the main LCD screen on the back) and icing on the cake would be if they were to somehow color the markings for the different buttons in white or another bright contrasting color to the black skin so that those might be easier to read for people who are new to the camera and getting used to where all the buttons are (and are, ehem, getting a little older and might have a hard time seeing the black on black markings :). Other than that, this is a perfect edition to your camera to keep it looking uber new through years of use!

I just received the one I bought, and doesn't it feel a little slippery? I feel that will be loosing the grip on my 5dM3. Just want to know if you have the same experience, and if you do, how you solve the problem. Thanks.

Mmm...I haven't had any problems really. They provide the textured gripping area for your fingers. Have you ever had one of these before (the skin)? It may feel natural to me because I had one on my previous camera. The 5DM3 certainly is a heavier camera though...but I still feel pretty confident just hand holding. I have a wrist strap attached as well, but I never seem to use it, it bugs me so I will probably remove it.
