    Wondering if there are any recommendations for a G3 screen protector availaible in UK, that will be anti-glare, fingerprint proof, and allow touch funtions.

    Most of the ebay ones state they are ok for G3, but the detail has text like "no bubbles on your phone", getting me to think it is not for the G3.

    ps. of course, I can close the lid, but I am looking for a screen protector !

    thanks

    Simply buy good screen protector for large mobile phone and cut it down to size of Your G3 screen ;) I have done in the same way and it works great :)

    Hi. Not sure if its as simple as that. Not sure what type of touch mechanism we have on the G3. So not sure if it should be capacitive or resistive.

    The screen on all Panasonic Touchscreens is resistive (except the gH3 which is the first capacitive implementation) which is why all Panasonic Touchscreens work far better if you use a thumbnail rather than the surface of you finger or thumb to use them (and also why a plastic stylus is included with the cameras)

    Thanks for that, Rob.

    I bought my G3 used and it didn't come with a stylus. It doesn't matter because I don't use the touchscreen, preferring to use menus. I would like to fit my G3's screen with a glass protector but that would prevent me folding the LCD against the camera back.
