    Any suggestion what could be a good option for a perfect fit custom designed for the GH3, not those generic ones that you have to cut at home, thanks

    UPDATE 4/16/13: I can confirm that the screen protectors for the Olympus OM-D E-M5 are a 100% PERFECT fit for the DMC-GH3 camera, I just installed one of them today on my GH3.

    Dunno -- my screen is usually facing the camera, except when I do menu things.

    I bought one designed or a Sony DSLR - it was a genuine Sony item with that nice blue anti reflective coating and a perfect fit
    I kept the packaging for the part number in case others wanted to use them
    Leave it with me and ill get back to you with the part number (obsolete Sony DSLR I believe)
    Regards

    Hi update:-
    The Sony Part Number is PCK-LS6SM
    THIS WAS A SCREEN PROTECTOR FOR A SONY A230 DSLR
    GREAT FIT AND VERY HIGH QUALITY - much better than the typical aftermarket variety
    Regards

    Hi
    I dont have the GH3 now but I have the packet

    Dimensions are (stated as approx) 75.6mm X 50.5mm (3"X 2")

    Could you kindly confirm how well those dimensions fit for the benefit of others reading
    Regards

    The present.
    Got you covered... First off, check this assumption... GH3 screen is the same size as G5 screen. (See: https://www.mu-43.com/f43/gh3-vs-g5-41613/#post404380 - this was the extent of my research.)

    I got these for my G5 screen and it went on with zero bubbles, is an exact fit and I'd swear on a stack of bibles that the touch function is slightly more sensitive...

    3 x Ultra Clear Screen Protector for Panasonic Lumix G5 | eBay

    Three (3) in a pack. So good I also got one specific to my EM5. Nice to have a high quality screen protector that does not cost $19.00.

    Hope this helps.

    The LCD Screen (Rear) on both cameras are exactly the same ?, if I use Camera Size to compare them, the GH3 seems to be wider because it has thinner borders, please check the link:

    PS re my earlier post - the protector does not have a blue coating - the blue was on the actual screen of the GH3 !
    The protector is actually clear

    I just measured the GH3 LCD Screen (rear) and it's exactly 3" x 2", is that the exact same size of the G5 screen protector?, thanks a lot

    No. It's not. The active portion of the LCD MAY be the same, however, there is a fair amount of glass around it, and in the end, you want to cover all of the EM5's glass and a protecor designed for the G5/GH3 will not fit the entire glass portion of the screen.

    Sopi does have an lcd protector specifically for the EM5 made of the same material. I ordered one after I sized it against my G5 protectors.

    I'll double check tonight, but if the screen sizes really are the same, the answer will be yes. The G5 protector was a perfect fit.

    Did you mean the G5 and E-M5 are not the same or the E-M5 and the GH3 are not the same?, I know already the G5 and GH3 are NOT the same, thanks

    Correct Fit

    Hello, I'm new here, I was wondering, if you put a screen saver on the GH3,
    does it affect how the whole screen fits to the GH3 when placed in what I call the protective position, face down. In looking at the camera it seems that there is not enough room for additional thickness which may impede it from closing properly. Also is there any negative effect on the touch screen using the screen protector.

    Thank you:smile:

    Hi
    As long as you use a plastic foil protector (rather than a glass one ) there will be absolutely no problem with closing the screen in the folded in position. Have previously fitted these to several Panasonic Vari Angle Screens including the GH3
    There is no negative effect on the operation of the screen
    Regards

    Name Brands

    Are there any name brands that anyone can recommend for the GH3?
    Thanks for the info.:smile:
