Have you ever struggled with taking a picture outdoors on your iPhone because of the oppressive glare of the sun washing out the Retina display? A new Kickstarter project might have the perfect solution for you.
The Daylight Viewfinder attaches to an iPhone 4, 4S, or the newest iPod Touch or iPad. The Viewfinder blocks out external light, letting you see your phone’s screen glare-free to take a photo. When you’re not using the Viewfinder, it collapses and becomes small enough to carry around in a pocket or purse.
Creator Paul Anderson set up the project on crowdfunding site Kickstarter with an ambitious $44,000 goal to get the equipment he needs to start mass producing the Viewfinder. So far, he’s got 18 backers who’ve pitched in $400.
Interested? If you invest early, Anderson will give you a 33% discount if the Daylight Viewfinder meets its Kickstarter goal.
