Does the job, but suction cup attachment to hood is poor.

Used the LensSkirt taking photos through the windows of old buildings at Bodie State Historic Park. We found that the suction-cup feet were not firmly attached to the LensSkirt, so if you weren't very careful releasing them from the window (which could be difficult, since the situation was sometimes awkward) you could easily pull them off the hood. You can put them back (assuming you don't lose either the little plastic plug or the suction cup), but they should be designed with a sturdier attachment. Other than that, the LensSkirt did very well at keeping the reflections out of the photos.

I take a lot of pictures through glass and this helps tremendously. I purchased the smaller one and had to buy the bigger one as I frequently caught the edges in my photos. I wish the suction cups had better tabs to help remove from the glass.

This isn't the greatest invention, but it gets the job done. I bought this item mainly for my visit to the One World Observatory because I had read about all the reflections that show up in photos due to it being behind large windows. It managed to cover most of it but some reflections still show up because there are just too many to deal with. I have since used it from hotel windows and other high places covered in glass and it helps a lot. I still think that for the price it could be better, so if you have any other remedy to deal with annoying reflections try that first as this product isn't 100% perfect.

Blocks out reflections, but not 100%

I bought this hood last minute before going on travel. My main purpose for this product is to shoot through aircraft windows. I was surprised to see that this hood didnt block out all the reflections, especially on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Due to how the windows are designed, they reflect everything terribly. I was disappointed in the hood as no matter what I tried, reflections would still appear in my images. The suction cups cause small light cracks to enter at the base. I tried every possible angle on the window, even to the extend of mounting it onto the plastic of the aircraft. Stuffing the light cracks with a blanket didnt work either. That being said, my latest flight on a Boeing 777 proved the hood to be useful (though not perfect). Overall, this is a decent thing to travel with, but for the price, I think the performance isnt adequate.

An option for reflection free photography

Good quality, somewhat over priced. Works better than universal or screw in soft lens hoods.

Excellent product

This rather simple but cleverly designed item blocks out any reflection from photographs taken through a window pane. The suction cups hold its surface firmly to the glass and there is enough leeway within the material to allow for rather large lenses to be used. It's really an excellent product and I recommend it to anyone who has encountered problems with reflections being visible when indoor photographs are taken. I think this might be most useful when photographing animals through the protective glass in zoos.

Which size for 16mm on full frame?
Asked by: Anna
Yes, the Lenskirt ""LENSKIRT Flexible Lens Hood will technically fit on your 16mm lens, because the draw string will allow it to fit. But, because of the extreme wide angle of that lens on a "full frame" camera, one will see the hood on the edge of photos. The Lenskirt LENSKIRT XL is a better hood for wide angle lenses like the 16mm. https://bhpho.to/3ahTUTC

Would this work for basketball backboard mounted cameras to block reflections?
Asked by: Benjamin
It will almost certainly work and probably quite well. I’ve used it on store windows to great effect and your proposed use sounds like just what this was designed for.

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
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.
