In Cultural Heritage imaging it’s especially important to prevent any stray light from causing lens flare. To that end, DT has developed these custom lens shades specifically for our iX camera series. Their geometry has been precisely calculated based on the specific field of view possible for the 72mm and 120mm lenses on the iX platform. They have an inward slope that forms a natural light trap. Finally, the interior is painted with the most light-absorbing paint available. Initially developed at the request of the Library of Congress, these lens shades are now available to any of our clients.
