Dinkum Systems

COMPACT™ lens shade

Regular price $35.95 1

The COMPACT™ lens shade is a professional “french flag” for DSLR’s and small video cameras.  Securing to the hot-shoe bracket, the multi-directional 10 link, 7.5” / 19cm long ball-and-socket arm holds the sturdy 5-inch wide aluminum shade securely and precisely to protect from lens flare, dust, and drizzle.   Fast set-up and ease of use make this an essential item to add to the kit of every serious photographer or videographer, saving time and money by eliminating the need for hoods specific to every lens.   

SPECS: Weight 4.1 oz.  

* PLEASE NOTE: the required rigidity of the arm means that while this device is length adjustable, good alignment and significant pressure is required to reattach the segments.  

The COMPACT™ lens shade is the only item in the Dinkum Systems® product line that is NOT interchangeable with the other heads, bases and additional links.  Please note that additional links are NOT sold separately for this product.

no more lens flares!

This little gizmo fixes a problem we've had for years! I shoot video for several of the sports teams at our high school, but the positioning of our stadium and pressbox means that late afternoon sun is right in line with the camera angle for one end of the field. This shade attaches to the shoe mounts on top of the iographer shell and the arm is long enough and the size is big enough to keep it out of the line of sight, but provide ample shade to prevent backlighting. Perfect solution for much better video!
