    Lenskirt LSKIRT1 Reviews

    LENSKIRT Flexible Lens Hood is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 42.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommend this product I purchased the Lenskirt for taking photos on the Feb 2018 Air New Zealand Aurora Australis flight. The Lenskirt is attached to a window by 4 suction cups and the drawer cord ensures a snug fit around the camera lens to block out back light and reduce reflections. Lenskirt is made in the USA, of good quality material and is well made. Once positioned on the window it holds its shape and the rear hole is of very generous size. My 82mm lens fits with considerable margin. Product was out of stock when I placed the order . I can't fault B&H service- they immediately advised the order status and once on hand the item was dispatched and received in New Zealand in approx. 9 days.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Really Excellent Product I love to take photos from the train when traveling. I have used this hood many many many times traveling on the trains in Europe. It has allowed me to take photos from the train in situations where the reflections on the train windows made it otherwise impossible. It is simple to set up and use. To add some additional information, most of the longer distant trains have sealed windows... if you do not have this device available, you are basically out of luck in terms of being able to take photos... unless you are traveling on the slower, shorter-run regional trains where you may be able to open a window. If you take photos from the train you will want to have a Lenskirt as an important part of your photography equipment. This is a very highly recommended product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential for Photos Through Glass If you take photos through glass, then this lens skirt will improve your photographs results. With the hood, you will no longer have problems with reflections or light flare ruining or degrading your photos. I have used this skirt at zoos to take telephoto shots of tigers, lions, cheetahs, and other dangerous animals that are behind Plexiglass. The skirt is attached to the Plexiglass with the rubber suction cups and to the lens with a draw string that fits around the lens body. It may seem a bit of a kluge, but it works well. If you really want to eliminate any residual glare from light transmitted latterly along the plesiglass, add a polarizer for true nirvana.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great to prevent reflection from showing up This lens skirt I originally learned about from a YouTube lecture Event Space video on the B&H YouTube channel and one of the photographers recommended getting a camera skirt to prevent getting unwanted reflections to appear in the glass. I like shooting out of the car window, shooting in museums, and other things where I will shoot out of a window where I don't want myself or other lights so appear in the reflection. I like how compact it is. I also learned that is great if you are outside in a windy situation I can put the lens skirt over the on camera mic and it will eliminate the unwanted wind sounds.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does just what it should The reptile house at the zoo was my reason for buying this accessory, since I'm a member, and plan to go regularly. But I want that glass between me and the cobra. This lens hood worked very well on my latest visit to knock down glare. I'll keep this in my lens bag, as it folds very flat. The suction cups work very well, with little tabs to rock when time to remove (without a pop). I'd also recommend bringing a towel, for eliminating the fingerprints where you are going to shoot through. The Canon 5D sr with the 90mm Tamron f/2.8 was pretty well matched by the 7D MkIII with Laowa 60mm Ultra (2X) macro f/2.8, aside from manual focus on one. Monopod, usually with lens against glass.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprising uses I bought this for shooting through glass and other reflective surfaces like aquariums and windows (to show room contents, for example). Then I got the idea to use it as a blind when photographing birds at my window feeder. It works fabulously! I'm now photographing birds at distances of 24-30 using a Canon 135 f/2 lens with an extension tube, and the birds never even notice me (they did before I had the skirt). The small suction cups work well. The skirt is nicely made and my only criticism is that it's expensive for what it is. I bought it from B&H Deal Zone, which was a fair price, though.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from MUST for timelapse through windows Great product Very usefull Easy to use Just be carefull when removing the suction cups from the glass window that you have a firm grip ON the suction cup tongue and that you are NOT pulling from the cloth (skirt)

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works ok but not perfect The Lensskirt worked ok, but I still got some light leak from one of the corners. I was shooting a city scape at night through my office window. Better to have it than not for that shot.

    question

    Is the Lenskirt suitable for using with a GoPro camera attached to the window via the GoPro suction cup? I presume itd be a simple matter of pulling the drawstring closed behind the camera to keep light from entering from the rear. I like to do time-lapse photography at airports.
    Asked by: Philip Y.
    I have not tried with a GoPro and suction mount only a 5Dm3. From how you are describe you would mount the GoPro I think you will have success in your time lapse

    question

    Can the top edge of the hood be adjusted closer to the camera than the bottom if the camera needs to be angled downwards when shooting through a one-way mirror?
    Asked by: Allan
    Angling the camera lens within the hood would present no problem at all. This is an excellent product. I have used this hood many many many times traveling on the trains in Europe. It has allowed me to take photos from the train in situations where the reflections on the train windows made it otherwise impossible. Highly recommended product.
