Excellent cheap efficient solution to sun glare
on 1 September 2012
The Delkin Pop-up Shade is a neat simple solution to a problem that plagues everyone who uses a digital camera that doesn't incorporate a viewfinder in that it completely eliminates sun glare allowing the shot to be properly composed and the resultant photo checked. It's such an essential addition to our camera that I wonder that the camera manufacturers do not include it as standard on their products. It would also be a useful add-on to a dSLR for use with Live View and for checking and displaying the photos taken. It consists of two parts; a transparent film that affixes to the rear screen of the camera to protect it from scratches and the pop-up shade itself. It is easy to fit and simple to use. Pulling the rear of the shade upwards allows the two sides to spring outwards and into position providing cover from both sides and above. Pushing the two sides in reverses the process. Sliding the entire shade sideways allows it to be removed leaving just the protective film in place. However, there seems little reason to remove the shade for even when conditions mean that it's not needed it doesn't interfere with camera use in any way and when folded flat its so slim that our camera is still easily stored in its case with it attached.
