    the best accessory so far that I got is this 3rd generation GGS clip-on screen protector
    I got it from this eBay Seller for about $12 and really worth the money. I have never seen a screen protector this clear. its like its not even there. The frame comes in two colors - silver and black

    Does it interfere with the opening and closing of the screen? The screen on the NEX-c3 is slightly hard to open going by the reports.

    nope no more harder than before. infact with this on, it makes it even easier cause you got a few more latches to hold on to

    Looks pretty nice, although I use a pop-up screen hood which also acts as a protector when closed.

    I don't like because it adds width to the camera...maybe a thin LCD protective film will do the job.

    I always recommend ZAGG InvisibleShields, I use them on everything. Their customer support and warranty replacement is great too! No I don't work for them or get money from them, just a satisfied customer for many years. They are tricky to apply, they have kiosks in some malls that will apply them for you as well as Best Buy.

    I use a ZAGG on my LX3 and it works very well. For the NEX I went with the Sony rigid protector which also works fine.

    which solution improves the vulnerability to those ugly fingerprints on the NEX-Displays? On sunny days I really have problems getting a clear view on my NEX after a while... are my fingers too dirty? :D

    I guess the GGS won't allow to use the touch screen on NEX-5n. Does it make sense to use it and disable touch screen?

    It would interfere with touchscreen capability. The biggest advantage mine gives the C3, it gives you something for your thumb to catch and it's much easier to flip up the screen

    I understand that it will interfere with touchscreen capability. But I believe I can turn the touchscreen capability off. So my question is: does touchscreen have any real advantage to use it or it is just another gimmick? To me, the hard screen protector looks more reliable than thin film and I just trying to figure out if sacrificing the touchscreen capability for that purpose make any sense.

    I dont think it will sit properly and will probably unclip when the screen is closed as the small clip catchments are different in the NEX-7 compared to the 5N (or the 5, C3, or 3 for that matter) the clip attachments for the lcd of the 5N is located at the top and bottom of the screen where as the 7's are located at the sides and bottom of the lcd. Probably why they dont have an illustration of the 7 with the protector attached.

    Thanks Pheonix,
    I'm sure you're right, so looks like I'll have to buy the flexible film type of protector instead.
