Fotodiox Announces CamHoodie for iPad mini to Reduce Purple Haze and Lens Flare
Lens hood adapter works with almost any case to reduce lens flare on new iOS devices
Waukegan, Ill. – Nov. 14, 2012 – Fotodiox, a leading manufacturer and distributor of professional photography and videography accessories and creator of the CamHoodie for the iPhone® 5, 4 and 4S today announces the CamHoodie for the Apple iPad® mini, an adaptor which greatly reduces the lens flare or “purple haze” effect experienced by device users when taking pictures and video.
The CamHoodie for iPad mini is a lens hood adapter that slides into any hard backed case. The CamHoodie lens hood is made of a high grade rubber-like material that is highly durable and works to reduce lens flare on photos by blocking stray light rays from entering the lens elements from the edges of the frame. The rubber piece cocoons the lens and helps reduce reflections inside the lens from bright lights.
“We know from professional experience that lens flare is a common problem for photographers – even the most expensive cameras are susceptible to lens flare in certain lighting conditions,” said Drew Strickland, vice president of Fotodiox. “We developed the CamHoodie as a way to greatly reduce what’s been called the ‘purple haze’ effect and help users more easily capture the images they want with the new iPad mini in addition to the iPhone 5, 4 and 4S.”
The CamHoodie for iPad mini joins the line of CamHoodie products available for iOS devices:
