    I believe this has been discussed before but my attempts to find an earlier thread were unsuccessful. What screen protector works well for the E-P3? Is there a GGS model available? Importantly, can you use a protector and still retain touch screen capability?

    Thanks in advance for info and/or a link!

    I am still waiting on ACMAXX to bring about their EP3 screen protector. My friend has one from Amazon or eBay I don't remember the brand but he can still use his touch screen with the screen protector on. Kinda like with the iPhone and touchscreen phone screen protectors.

    My e-p3 came with some Vivitar universal screen protectors. You have to cut them to size yourself. They work fine, but mine came off because I cut it a hair too big and it got caught on my clothing while wearing the camera on a neck strap. I should put another one on but I'm lazy.

    You can find universal protectors just about anywhere they sell electronics these days.

    I bought a $4 LCD protector with no brand and I can still use touchscreen. The LCD performance with or without the protector is the same and it doesn't use glue

    I've used a protector called screenpatronus on my dslr's and m43's.
    They are easy to apply, easy to remove, cheap, clear and my E-P3 screens works fine with them. They're made to measure for different cameras.

    A hard screen protector sounds nice but i worry about practical application. Funny that their actual site says the ep-3 ones are still in process and nothing can be bought yet... They really should update their site haha. I was more leaning towards those flimsy ones that stick on by static, kinda like the ones on my iphone. I'm no good with those universal ones as i cannot cut straight for beans haha. Maybe i'll just get the ones off amazon or ebay that my friend has. He told me it works no problem :D

    Delkin do a good protector/sunshade, they are done by size rather than model.
