Flare Buster FB-98XL overview

  • 1Description

The Flexible Arm with Lens shade, Reflectors & Vignettes Kit from Flare Buster 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

    Flexible Arm with Lens shade, Reflectors & Vignettes Kit is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Welcome ... But ... A welcome gadget for those who shoot outdoors in light conditions that are less than perfect ... Instead of hadling a piece of paper,and holding your camera with one hand this attachement to the flash shoe is great and does perform well. BUT the build is not that serious : I found myself in the Oslo airport looking for the gadget of which only remained the attachement to the flash shoe of my camera. The rest was badly glued to it and had fallen without me,realizing.,After a,searchthat I felt was hopeless I found the whole thing, extension + clip + screen othe side of a garbage can obviously put there intentionally, thanks to the civilized attitude of the Norvegian ... I don't think it would have been the same in Paris, Naples or NY !!!! After regluing the extention to the attachment everything is in order but the manufacturer should checkhis product twice before selling it as this sloppy default should be easily prevented. Of course, once you bought the stuff I find it difficult to have the retailer accept to pay me back ... So the consumer takes all the risk. But yes, this is VERY USEFUL AND PRACTICAL : buyers should check the solidity of the gluing between attachment and extension before using it outdoors.

    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 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 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 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.
