Samurai screen protector?

I've looked through my old smartphone and even Hoodman screen protectors but not yet found a perfect size match for the Samurai screen. Anyone have screen protector suggestions for a good fit? I won't mind cutting something down either, and I'm not bothered by any resolution loss - greasy fingers on a screen annoy the heck out of me though.

Thanks, it did finally occur to me that just getting a large iPad sized screen protector and cutting it to fit was probably the best way to go.

Re: Samurai screen protector?

Does the ZAG protector allow you to see the Samurai screen adequately to focus in bright sunlight? I have found that even with a 6 inch long, four sided hood that this is not possible, even in the grey days of an English summer!

Geoff Addis...have you down-loaded the latest Firm-Ware? V. 3.0 seems to have increased the Samurai screen brightness. To me, it seems pretty good, but I'm not a great judge. I built a 'three-sided' monitor shade from Matte-Board and Gaffer's tape that really helps with the Sun.

Regards,

J.

Yes, I have updated to v.3, but I'm seeing very little, if any difference in brightness!

Another readily available possibility is the screen protector for the Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet. Available at book stores nationwide (USA).

I agree, I have not noticed any change in screen brightness with the new firmware V3.

Thanks for the tips on screen protectors !!

Re: Samurai screen protector?

Well, I definitely notice a difference in screen brightness as well as the screen is ~1/8" narrower (1/16" less top and bottom) then it was before. ATOMOS confirmed this in one of their video pieces from NAB '2012.

JMHO, YMMV.

Regards,

J.

Mmmm! Don't see any difference in picture size either, but just about to update to 3.01 perhaps that will change things or perhaps there are different LCDs being used.
