Hello all
Was wondering what type of screen film would be good for glare problems on my ipad. I have a sunshade on it but still have this glare that makes it difficult to see in mid afternoon. What do you guys use? Thanks for any input...

Glare filters do not work.  Shade the best you can, and tilt the screen so that you are not perpendicular to it.  Also, set your iPad to the highest brightness.

I bought a $25 film that promised to reduce screen glare dramatically and be fully usable in sunlight. It does not work well at all.
The best thing you can do is get a sunshade from DJI, or a soft padhat from HoodiVision http://www.hoodivision.com/ or a full immersive hood from Hoodman http://hoodmanusa.com/

Don't waste your money, none of them work and I've tried at least 15 of them. A black cloth thrown over your head and the controller helps

You've tried the Hoodman? With that one there's no glare at all on your screen.

No problem, with any sunshade, you still will get screen glare unless you are in the shade, but they do help some.

No, I meant all the anti glare screens. Hoods work well

Has anyone had experience with the HoodiVision PadHat Vs the DJI sunshade, is it really much better since it's still open at the bottom like the sunshade which helps but still quite a bit of reflection.

I have tried all of the ones talked about on here and the best hands down is the hoodman.  The padhat is cut at a goofy angle and it makes viewing the screen difficult.  It doesn't stay in place very well either.  The hoodman is high quality and it stays in place.

My favorite screen cover is the Moshi iVisor AG.  It's perfect.

I bought one of these http://www.gearbest.com/fpv-system/pp_229045.html for my Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7, arrived yesterday and fits perfectly.
Low cost and it works {:4_181:}
