The Flex Lens Shade was developed by Tom Hogan, a professional sports and portrait photographer. As a sports photographer he found that light flare from indoor truss lighting was prevalent while shooting events. With nothing on the market, Tom developed the Flex Lens Shade to block sunlight, indoor lighting and studio lighting to solve the problem of unwanted sun and light flare.
In developing the Flex Lens Shade, he wanted to develop a product that was durable, professional looking and lightweight. With its Ballistic Nylon shell, double stitch sewing and finished edging, the Flex Lens Shade is durable enough for every day use. At only 1.2 ounces, the near weightless Flex Lens Shade can be carried in your camera bag every day with its lay flat design.
