Dinkum Systems COMPACT lens shade

You Pay: $39.00
Product Highlights
  • Anti-Reflective Aluminum Flag
  • 7.5" x 5.5" Flag
  • 7.5" Long Adjustable Arm
  • Mounts on a Hot/Cold Shoe

The Dinkum Systems COMPACT lens shade works as a French flag for DSLRs and small video cameras. The aluminum flag is attached to a 10-link, 7.5" long adjustable arm that secures into the camera hot-shoe bracket. The flag is 7.5 x 5.5" large, and it securely and precisely protect from lens flare, dust, and drizzle. Setup is fast and easy.

Note! Although the arm is length adjustable, good alignment and significant pressure is required to reattach the links. The COMPACT lens shade is not interchangeable with the other heads, bases, and additional links like other Dinkum Systems products are. Additional links are not sold separately for this product.

Dimensions Flag: 7.5 x 5.5" (19.5 x 13.5 cm)
Arm length: 7.5" (19 cm)
Weight 4.1 oz (116 g)

            Comments about Dinkum Systems COMPACT lens shade:

            The wider the lens, the greater the flare. The Dinkum compact lens shade is the answer in many cases. Example: photographing 2-story home with camera extended 9-feet high on a lightstand. Can't use your hand there! Even at eye level, one frequently needs both hands for other things. I don't use it often, but it's real handy when I do.

            Comments about Dinkum Systems COMPACT lens shade:

            I have a Nikon 14-24 lens mounted to a D800. I'm a professional real estate photographer. I needed a product to prevent lens flare from this ultra-wide angle lens. I think the product is well made, and will serve its purpose. However, it does not have the length needed, to provide adequate sheilding. I contacted Dinkum, and they suggested I purhcase a second one (which I did), to cannabalize it, and extend the articulating arm. I'm expecting the second one in the mail. I think this is a potentially winning product. But the manufacturer, needs to provide additional links (not currently available for purchase). Secondly, having a moldable flag (similar to a rogue flash-bender) would allow a greater degree of cusomization. The fact that it is a large, flat and sharp object, makes it complicated to pack, without damaging other accessores in one's bag.
