Do you have protection?

On your digicam's LCD screen I mean... I just got a new little beauty, and I want to keep it mint, but I've no idea what's the preferred method.

It's a Canon SD800IS, btw... really blowing me away with its performance.

get a form fitting case for it. i got the canon case although lowepro might make something nice as well.

definitely store it in the case.

I'm thinking a screen protector to keep my grubby fingerprints off the LCD. The case I'm ambivalent about.

I own an older model of that camera. Aside from something really really stupid happening, the screen shouldn't be a problem. I'd be more worried about the camera bouncing around in a bag.

I get it now--it'll either be in a safe compartment of a photo bag, or (more likely) in my pocket.

I'm not worried about breaking the screen, just of having it look like the screens of my other digicams.

These guys make solid protectors...

Supporting anecdote - The one time I had my SD300 out of a case (or my pocket), I was in my car and the camera was in center console cupholder. Then another driver lost control and spun across the median into oncoming traffic (i.e. me). After getting out of the hospital, I found the camera under the seat in the back of my totaled car. The plexiglass protector has an impact fracture in the bottom left corner, saving the LCD. Camera still works like a champ.

P.S. This anecdote also functions to support the safety record of Subaru engineering. smiling smiley
