Recently there have been several reports where iPhone 5 owners have noticed a certain purple lens flare when they take photos. Apple replied by saying that this is normal and suggested that they try taking photos differently. Well if you’d rather not change the way you take photos but want to get rid of the sometimes annoying purple flare, Fotodiox has come up with an iPhone 5 dubbed the camHoodie which is said to reduce the purple flare effect when taking photos. It’s your typical iPhone 5 case with the difference being that it comes with an added rubber ring around the camera lens portion, which we assume helps to shield it from excessive light from the sides which might cause the purple flare. Based on the comparison photos they showed, it seems that the camHoodie really does make a difference, so if you’d like to check it out, head on over to Fotodiox’s website where you can order one for $24.95.
