Tip on polarized sunglasses.Polarized sunglasses are a tool you have to fight...


Tip on polarized sunglasses.Polarized sunglasses are a tool you have to fight the effects of sun glare. The design for these sunglasses was first developed and implemented more than 60 years ago. When they were first developed they were used mainly by those in sports, as a way to help protect the player's eyes from sun glare. While they are still heavily used as sports sunglasses, they are now used by anyone, anywhere. Their benefit is in providing you with the ability to see well even in the harshest of sun glare conditions.<br /> How Polarization Works<br />Understanding polarization can help you to see why you need to use polarized sunglasses in any situation in which, there is a lot of sun glare. When sunlight hits a surface, the photons in it are vibrating in one direction, which means it is polarized. When this happens, the light travels away from that place, called the pole-to-pole movement, on that plane. <br />When does it make sense to have polarized sunglasses?<br /> * Light reflects off water with glaring effects (if you have ever been fishing and been unable to see the water, this is why)<br /> * Light reflects off wet pavement in the same matter, which means having them while driving is highly effective<br /> * The snow can also reflect very brightly and polarized lens sunglasses can be helpful at seeing through this<br /> * Sun glares off the car's bumper in front of you in traffic, polarized sunglasses can help<br /> * Light beams off the baseball bat at the game you are pitching, polarized sunglasses can help minimize this<br /><br />Using Polarized Sunglasses Appropriately<br /><br />Because polarization can be blinding in some situations, it is essential to use polarized sunglasses whenever you could be exposed to this light. One thing is unique, though. The color of the lens used in polarized sunglasses can be important, as different types of reflective surfaces are dealt with better with different colored sunglasses.<br /> * Use gray sunglasses for an all purpose type of protection, it provides true color perception, too<br /> * Yellow sunglasses are a good option for blue light, such as driving on a cloudy day<br /> * Red is a good option for virtually all sports activities as it works well when there is a lot of bright sunlight<br /> * Blue polarized sunglasses are an option to use when playing tennis and golfing, especially on a day that is partly cloudy<br /> * Choose brown polarized sunglasses for driving and fishing, as it is a good option for improving the contrast you see<br /> * Go with copper polarized sunglasses when you need good contrast (it provides the maximum amount)<br />Polarized sunglasses are an ideal investment when it comes to protecting

Reflection off of screen


Plasma TV's are known for their glare and reflection issues, you can still fix it by buying a third party anti-glare filter and applying it on your television. For example, "ViewGuard" makes filters that goes up to 65" in size. It is not cheap though, depending on the size of your television.
Of course, the best solution is to adapt your room accordingly. If the glare is caused by the sun light coming from the windows, installing curtains on your windows or moving your television to a better spot is a very effective way to reduce the glare and the reflections on your television.
If the glare is caused by the room's lights, the best solution is to install ceiling spot lights with a dimmer.

Hope that helps!

I have a CQ56 compaq and do not know which type of screen to order a matte or a glossy screen.


The Two Kinds of LCD Monitors lens1946174_1208282041macbook-matte-screen1.jpg There are two kinds of modern LCD screens: matte (anti-glare) and glossy. Both have their pros and cons and are a subject of many discussions.

Matte screens don't get glare or reflections on them; however, the same rough surface (polarizer) that reduces the intensity of reflected light results in less contrast and brightness since the light from the LCD screen passes through it. Matte screens diffuse light instead of reflecting it so they might be easier to read outdoors, if the backlight provides enough brightness. You don't have to worry as much about reflections as with a glossy screen.

Glossy screens have vibrant colors and the highest contrast and brightness because they have a smooth, high-gloss surface. As a result, it is often the choice for movies or gaming. However, strong lighting causes glare on these screens which is very annoying and may tire your eyes if you have to stare at it all the time. You can also see reflections on the screen. Some graphics designers may also find the colors inaccurate. Glossy will work great for you if the lighting in your room doesn't create any glare on the screen.

When I am taking pictures outdoors there is so much glare that I can not see the picture I am taking.


Have you tried a glare shield, or LCD hood?

A glare shield reduced reflections, whilst an LCD hood folds out and provides "miniature shade" to assist in viewing.

Here's a 2.5" example (for pentax). Generic ones (such as Delkin) are cheaper.

For more types, search for "LCD Hood" on eBay, Cameras

Reflection and glare on a 55'' Mitsubshi projection TV


I have the same problem with my Mitsubishi and the only solution I have come up with is slightly moving the TV's angle so the reflection is not as bad and closing drapes or curtains. Also turn off lamps. This is a poor design but Mitsubishi is not the only TV that has this type of problem. It is something I have become accustomed to and do not notice it as bad since I have moved the TV angle.

Glare on lcd screen


it's pretty normal.. try wearing a brimmed hat to create shade, turning the brightness up on the screen, the lcd's tend to get washed out in the bright sun.
