Some photographers do anything they can to avoid lens flares; others seek it out like their lives depend on it. If you fall into the latter category, Technical Farm has a product around the corner that might pique your interests.
It’s called the Flare Adapter.
As its name suggests, the Flare Adapter is a lens adapter made of transparent plastic. Unlike opaque adapters, this little gem lets light pass through to give your images the artistic touch flares can add to an image.
To customize the flare, you can block off how much light is entering your camera by using gaffers tape, objects in your surroundings or even your fingers if nothing else is nearby. If you’d rather add more light, you can do that too using the included LED lights.
No price or release date has been determined, but Technical Farm says there will be a PL to E-mount, EF to EF and Ef to E-mount options to start out with.
Alternatively, you could by flare overlays for both stills and video. They might not be as customizable as the Flare Adapter, but I have a feeling they’ll be less expensive (and won’t take up any more room in your camera bag).
