The Flex Lens Shade is an adjustable flexible lens shade that fits any SLR lens.The Flex Lens Shade is the only tool on the market to block unwanted light flare. At only 1.2 ounces, the Flex Lens Shade will become a tool that you always carry in your camera bag every day.

The Flex Lens Shade was developed to be durable, professional and lightweight. With its Ballistic Nylon shell, double stitch sewing and finished edges, the Flex Lens Shade is durable for everyday use.

At only 1.2 ounces, the near weightless Flex Lens Shade can be carried in your camera bag everyday with its lay flat design and lightweight feature. Sun flare, indoor light flare and studio light flare can ruin an excellent image.

Flare can also ruin an image due to the focus unit trying to focus through the flare causing the image to be out of focus. Often you are not able to move to avoid the light flare or maybe didn't notice it when taking the photo and that moment is gone.

There has been quite a few articles about the Sony RX1, but I think this PhotoPlus 2012 video has some of the best insight about Sony's Full Frame compact camera, and why they couldn't make it an Interchangeable Lens Camera. The lens is actually recessed into the camera body, and the shutter is fit into the lens. There is some additional information in the video such as a comment about uncompressed HDMI output for external recorders. The new Sony RX1 should begin shipping in about a week and can be found for $2800 dollars via B&H (click here).
