Removing a shattered glass screen protector

Recommended Posts

Managed to put a perfect comic book shatter pattern across my Giottos Schott glass screen protector the other day, my Fuji just swung down and clipped it in the centre.

 

I wondered how to get it off, fingernails, credit cards, heat etc. ?

 

No, that dental floss trick from the 'Sony RX100 grip' thread worked a treat, quick & easy and no risk of damaging the actual camera screen.  Recommended.

 

But...I forgot to photograph it before I took it off!

No danger of damaging fingers either.😊

Yes, very nasty shards as it happens. I've ordered another though as it's a bit long in the tooth, a 5D MkII, there's not much of a choice. You can't seem to get the original Giottos or Larmor. I have read that the actual screen isn't too expensive or difficult to replace, though that was some time ago, they may not be available any more.
