What do you do when you've got to use your laptop outdoors and the sky is too bright to see the screen? Think Tank Photo's solution is the Pixel Sunscreen.
Using a laptop outdoors can be a challenge. Daylight, even on an overcast day washes out the screen, making it difficult to read menus, let alone improve an image captured in the field.
The Pixel Sunscreen is a portable darkroom designed just for your laptop. No one complained about Version One, but Think Tank Photo couldn't resist making a few improvements and sent us Version Two to test.
We took it out one day to see if it really could make our antique LCD panel useful outdoors. It did. But what really surprised us was how well Think Tank Photo had anticipated our needs. Read our review to see what we mean.
