Hello people,

As a photojournalist some times the strong sun light produces a heavy glare on my laptop screen. I have a Think Tank sun shade V2.0, but sometimes is not possible or pratical to use it in the street.

I was surfing in Ebay, and find this product (and a lot of similar ones) and I would like to know if anyone use anything like these to help to reduce glare, and if it work before I spent my money.

The product:

Thanks in advance guys!

Work ordered my Macbook pro with the matte anti glare screen, and it's not that much different to my glossy screen on my personal MacBook.
I use a Griffgear screen hood on the work laptop - and it works great for cutting glare, and making the screen useable in full sun

^^^^^Thanks mate for your kind opinion.

I've got the Think Tank Sun Screen V.2 but when I work in the street is too big. Work like a charm inside the stadium....

Kind regards

A laptop monitor emits light. The sun falling on the screen is a source of light which can easily overpower the emitted light from a laptop.
The best displays for bright sun are ones which rely upon Contrast to reflect back light (the page surrounding text) or not (the text), which is why B/W readers work so well in the sun, yet color readers and smartphone displays and laptop displays wash out.

'Antiglare' really serves to reduce the reflections caused from adjacent bright sources behind us, but it does nothing to reduce the intensity of light from the sun falling upon our screen and washing out the feeble light emitted by the monitor.
