Camera Strap that Doubles as an LCD Screen Glare Shield

Now here’s a clever idea: Olympus has filed a patent in Japan that allows you to use your camera strap as a makeshift LCD glare shield, shielding your screen from direct sunlight.

    Too bad they won’t be making any more DSLRs with which to use it :/

    Doesnt really work especially how small the neckstrap is my hand can cover more.

    Get outta here…

    1) You have to take the strap off from around your neck to use it. 2) Two extra items on the strap to cause discomfort, or dig into your neck. 3) How many hands does it take to hold the camera and the two guides?

    By the time you actually got the strap and the guides in place, the preview would have shut off and you’d have to start all over again. This seems more cumbersome than clever.
