    Default Taking photos while wearing "transition lens" glasses

    Hi all,

    Wondering anyone has any experience of taking photos while wearing "transition lens" glasses. Will it affect your judgement on the exposure ?

    Yes.. the transition glasses made me over expose some photos and judge the exposure wrongly on some instances as I was too used to the "automatic" dark glasses and did not notice it...

    So I solved the problem by reviewing the photos in LCD with my specs...

    I am new to photography so may not be correct. I am wearing transitional lens and while it darkens on the outside, from inside looking out it don't seems much difference to me. So the picture looks ok to me but I may not have the experience to see and intepret the photos correctly.

    Google is your best friend I think there was an article on luminous landscape that explained it quite well.

    YES. Major problem

    I always have to peer over my specs to look at the LCD screen to check the exposure of shots i took every now and then

    A little troublesome at first but i'm kinda used to it now

    Still, it does darkens a little

    looking through the transition lenses, there'll be a bias of aproximately +2/3 stops. Sometimes forgivable, other instances, a complete disaster

    It does affect me a little, but not to the extend of becoming a disaster though.
    Maybe cos mine is the other brand type of transitional lens, not the 'Transition' Brand type, so maybe not as dark as the original.

    Then again, the glasses only becomes very dark under strong sunlight and under such condition, I can't really see my lcd screen properly also. Gotta walk under shade to view.

    Transition lens only becomes dark due to the UV rays. Nothing to do with sunlight.

    Time to clip on your extra UV filters onto your specs
