    looks good

    I have had a look at the website and the Skin gurad (Carbon) really appeals to me for the GF1.
    I see in the states it sells for $15.99 but is showing as out of stock!
    I have contacted them and asked them if they have UK dealers/sources or failing that, if they will ship one to me when back in stock - now have to sit and wait.

    Thanks

    Thanks you for this.

    I will wait for a response from SGP and then decide which route to go.:bravo-009:

    This looks cool. I like the deep black. Hopefully they'll do other colors too!

    Carbon fibre for me

    They all look great but for me the Carbon fibre version is my choice, just have to wait and see what they say about availability and stock.

    That carbon fibre is very cool - my camera would match my kayak paddle :)

    This really is ridiculous... I won't even have my G1 in hand until tomorrow yet I'm already scheming my way to a GF1.

    I'm justifying this in my mind being it's the easist way to acquire the 20mm lens :)

    Go for it

    Now is probably a good time to get the GF1 kit with 20mm lens as some retailers are selling stock from before Christmas for a good price before the price hike!

    Easy to remove?

    I would ask if they remain stains when you remove the skin. The skin is easily applied? But mostly you can just as easily removed without any signs that remain on the camera?
    Thanks in advance:drinks:

    I doubt very much whether these skins will leave any residue you won't be able to remove. The adhesive is well developed for this task.

    Cheers

    I was going to say the same thing but don't have the personal experience to know for sure. Maybe asking SGP is the safest route.

    They won't / don't leave any residue. 100% tested as I had to reset one piece. It came away flawlessly and restuck perfectly.

    They seem to have these for the pen as well. How "thick" is the material? Also, does it have a good feel/grip?

    It has quite a good feel and, I think, enhances the grip a little. It's certainly not slippery. The material is very thin, but also tough and seems quite scratch resistant. It blends well onto the body.

    It's the same idea but a different product. The fact that it blocks access to the interface door sort of killed that as a choice for me.

    Just got my Deep Black SGP Skin Guard from the SGP store in USA. Very nice, goes on easily - and can be removed again without leaving any residue. It makes the GF1 easier to hold, a quality product at the price IMHO

    Nicely done Bullfrog, that combination looks great with the skin, EVF and especially that shade on the 20mm.

    It really does remind me of a modern version of the Leica CL.

    Rock on!!
