Screen protectors on touch enabled screens ?? do they work ?
« on: November 10, 2018, 08:07:00 am »

I've just got a Canon 5D iv that has a touch enabled rear screen. IF they work, I'd like to cover it with a screen protector film.
Any recommendations of brands that work OK ? or any experience of problems using them ?

TIA

I have had two different ones made by Sony for my Sony A7RIII and both worked with touch. The first was a glass one which never sealed well; the second is plastic and has worked like a charm ever since installed. I use the touch screen for placing focus points. I have no experience with Canon. Good luck.

I've one for my D850 and haven't had a problem with touch. I'd strongly recommend you get one though, as with no protector, my screen had scratched about two weeks into it.
