    Looking for GGS protector for GF-1

    Does anyone know which GGS screen protector will fit the GF-1? Perhaps it's the identical size to the GH-1?

    Here's the screen cover for the GH-1:

    The G1 and GF1 screens are 3" on the diagonal and the DPReview review of the GH1 says 3 inches also. I ordered one for my GF1. I should now in a week or so....

    Cheers,
    Don

    I see lots of screen protectors, but none are the GGS glass. I'll fire off a question to the eBay seller for more info. I expect it's the same one as the GH1.

    Ah, you meant glass. What is GGS? Laminated? I have self-adhesive transparant foil. Cheap and effective.

    GGS is some type of very thin, rigid glass. I have it on my Sony A900; it's a very hard surface, and leaves no ridges or bubbles. I cannot tell that there is anything covering the LCD screen. In my opinion this is the best type.

    Tom,

    Is there any issue with the glass breaking and scratching the LCD?

    I was considering the GGS cover before my GF1 arrived. But since I've had the camera, cleaning the LCD with my shirt tail, no scratches, so I'm going without. I was concerned because my Canon G9 screened got scratches just looking at it. But so far so good. Panasonic must have some hard type of coating.

    Did a bit of googling: should be the same as the LX3/D-LUX4. Maybe then you can find it?

    I don't claim to have a vast knowledge on this topic, but thus far it's been no problem for me, and I have read no reports of problems.
