ACMAXX LCD Protector - Pentax DSLR

Wait for them to make one for the K-3...
There is an ACMaxx for the K-3. I have already installed it - perfect fit!

Thanks for sharing. I've ordered both the ACMAXX and the Expert Shield K-3 screens. Will report their fit and finish when installed

Klh. Looks great on the eBay site. Was it easy to install? If you make a mistake can you start over or do you have to order another one?

It's very easy. You just clean the screen, peel off the backing, and stick in place. The adhesive is only around the edges. I've installed them on my K20D (2009), K-5 (2011), K-3 (2014), and MX-1 (2013). If you don't get it quite straight, I think you can warm with a hair dryer and move them. They are excellent for giving me some peace of mind about not scratching up the screen.

Thanks Kevin I ordered mine when you posted the link and it already was at the house tonight when I got home. I just put it on taking my time and it is a perfect fit, I too have a bit more peace of mind about the screen.

I just ordered mine from ACMaxx on eBay too. I put a ProMaster Screen Protector on mine and after 1 day of shooting the Ft. Worth Stock Show, it peeled off! No good!

It might be good to have a film protector over the glass protector! But Schraubstock, your site is English and I'm in USA. I go up to the flags in site, and no USA!

So I asked GGS...apparently the answer is no because the 3.2" screen is an unusual aspect ratio:

"Sorry, we have no such plan because not so many people use Pentax DSLR comparing Nikon and Canon.

We should get the whole forum to message them and teach them a lesson

Vocal users doesn't mean it's a big enough market for them

If the K-3's 3.2" display were a more normal aspect ratio, we could use one of the other system's 3.2" protector...they do make those.
