Flare Buster FB-98XL overview

  • 1Description

The Flare Buster Kit Extra Long is a handy accessory that shields your camera lens from image-degrading stray light without the need for obnoxiously large lens hoods or shielding the lens with a hat or your hand. It stores in a very compact fashion and can universally shade all but the biggest of telephoto lenses quite effectively. The Flare Buster attaches to the standard hot shoe on a camera.

Included in the kit are three reflectors for bouncing white, gold or silver light onto the subject. This is especially useful for macro photography. Two vignetting shades can be used to cast a small amount of light exactly on the subject as needed. The reticulating arm will hold the shade in any position around the camera as needed, and an included 1/4"-20 tripod adapter screw will even facilitate putting the shade below the lens if conditions would warrant it.

Note: This item is only guaranteed compatible with a standard hot shoe, not a proprietary one.

    Flare Buster FB-98XL reviews

    Flare Buster Kit Extra Long is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flarebuster Kit Use this with sun to avoid flares but also with reflectors for macro shots that need more light Great utility gadget. Very easily attached and utilized with all its' various attachments and handy hints for other uses. Haven't tried them all and am already impressed. Does take some extra space to have available when out shooting but worth it !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes the Flare Away! I had been wanting something like this as I shoot a lot of back light pictures and always had to shield the front of my lens with either my hand or have someone block it with something. This works! It is lightweight and easy to maneuver to just where you want it. I haven't used the vignetting discs, but I'm sure they work great also!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Simple I have used it in outdoor macro photography, primarily to reduce lens flare. It has a simple compression clip that could hold nearly any light weight object (filter, gel, reflector, etc.) Simple to install (hot shoe), easily positioned. This is one of those little items that's great to have in your camera kit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Sometimes the best things are simple and inexpensive. Flare Buster is both! I used one with my 4x5 and purchased a new one with the Hot Shoe Mount for my Cambo Wide DS. I don't know why I didn't do it sooner. Now that I have it, I can't imagine taking it off!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every Photog Needs One Although shown with a 35mm camera, most buyers are using large or medium format cameras. But, 35mm film, digital, and mirrorless cameras can use this device often. It does everything expected and does it well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just perfect I bought this as a shade for a Canon 17mm TS-E (which can't take a hood) and it is pretty close to perfect. I wish it had a metal mount for the flash shoe, but other than that, it is exactly what I needed!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Might be useful I bought this on a recommendation and I think it will be helpful to reduce lens flair. It also may be possible to use it as a clamp to hold flowers still. I have not been able to test it yet of either.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Although I have not used it yet, I fill it is very useful when there is any filter holder adapter on the lens.That's the reason I bought it. It looks to have a good quality and easy to use.
