First 130 Commercial Shoot Questions

Hi all

Did a commercial shoot with the 130 today and I love it. The 1/3rd sensors are was crying for ND filters as soon as I went outdoors in the bright sun and indoors it's nice to shoot indoors without an open iris and 14db gain like I'm used to!!! Autofocus worked well even in tough conditions..better than my HMC80

A few questions from 130/160 owners if I may please????

During filming the LCD got spots on it from the heat and humidity..I just wanted to know did yours have a plastic protector on it that can be peeled off??? I don't see anywhere to pick the edge up???? At it stands I just wipe the screen and it's back to normal.

My HMC80 used to reset the counter after each clip but the 130 just keeps a running total?? Can you get the 130 to reset a clip to zero when you start a new clip???

Finally an old person question!!! I'm using the LCD to frame and should be wearing glasses to get a sharper image but they are a pain!!! I was thinking about a magnifyer sorta 3X like the 80 has so the image is better...I'd prefer the 130 LCD to have to wear glasses than me!!! Anyone "mature" have this problem??? Could you mount a plastic document magnifier over the LCD ( I was thinking of have it so it can maybe flip down and magnify the screen???

Thanks for any input
