    Replacement Screen Protector for 50D - where to get them from?

    I scratched the living crap out of my rear screen on the weekend. I had the camera around my back, just at the right height of the metal button on my back pocket. The damage is mostly to the anti-reflective coating as I can't feel the scratches with my fingernail, but it looks bad.

    I've found a few websites that have instructions for changing the rear screen protector, but can find a source to buy them from.

    The Canon part numbers are CB3-4949-000 for the protector and CB3-4948-000 for the gasket and seem to be in the $50 range. These are from a 5DMk2, but I assume they'll fit a 50D?

    Does anyone know where I can get these from. I'll be calling Canon on monday to try but are there other sources?

    Thanks.

    Got a response for Canon regarding the screen. Part numbers for 50D are:
    CB3-3764 for the double sided tape, $2.50+GST
    CB3-5014 for the 'display window', $33.39+GST

    Pretty cheap for photography gear spare parts IMO. Nice not having to hand over the first born for a change.

    For reference, I got these from Parts Overnight ph.1800 814 450.

    Out of interest do people put those plastic film protectors over the screens? I have used them on my PDA's and phones for years and wondered about putting one on my camera screen. Has anyone done this?

    I did use the one's you can buy from Ted's, it was crap. I ended up buying one from eBay. It's glass and is multi-coated. There is a adhesive ring around the perimeter that doesn't touch the original screen and is very thin. Big thumbs up to this

    I had a protective aftermarket screen (plastic) on my 50D and have one now on my 5DII, bought from HK, cost only a few $ worth every cent.

    They are fairly cheap on Ebay....I put a solid glass (I suppose that's what it is?) one on my 50D...bit tricky to fit but I hardly notice that its there. The other Canon gear only got the el-cheapo flexible ones, you get an occasional bubble in them but doesn't bother me, scratch them and just peel off and apply a new one.

    I've been wrong before!! Happy to have constructive criticism though.Gear used Canon 50D, 7D & 5DMkII plus expensive things hanging off their fronts and of course a "nifty fifty".

    Thanks XR6Dan,
    I left my 50D on my desk and the temptation was just too great for my kids. The result was a cracked rear screen protector.
    Fortunately the rest of the camera survived and is still in working order.
    Your post was the solution to ordering the replacement bits needed.
