I just got this a few weeks ago and I'm noticing some fingerprints on the
viewscreen.

What do you folks suggest in terms of cleaning it off (I don't want to
scratch anything).

Since it is plastic, the same as reading spectacles these days, a soft cloth
only, no paper products, not even nose tissues.

If greasy some liquid detergent or glas cleaner. Don't get liquids around
the edge.

I agree...a soft cloth should do fine.

On a related note. does anyone have any experience with the digital
camera LCD protector sheets such as these made by Fellowes?

The ONLY cleaning method for the LCD monitor listed in my A75's
instruction book is:
Lens blower brush, soft cloth, or an eyeglass lens wiper.
It cautions against using water on any part of the camera, so any type
of soap would be ruled out IMHO.
If someone has used glass cleaner successfully, that might be worth
trying.
Me? I'm sticking with the soft cloth approach.

Spray the Windex (did I say that out loud?) on the cloth and then wipe.

On a related note, I went out and bought some LCD screen protectors
from Staples yesterday and put them on mine and my girlfriend's Canon
A75s. Aside from a few small air bubbles and cosmetic imperfections in
the protectant plastic film, it seems like they will do a good job of
protecting the LCD.

What I did was to gently cut the protective film round the LCD that
was on the back of the camera from new with a sharp blade. This
protects the LCD perfectly without any real loss in usage. I used the
small remnant to cover the serial nos on base as this apparently is
prone to rubbing off.
