iPhone 5 case promises to fix camera purple lens flare issue

Various iPhone 5 users have complained about a lens flare that affects photographs when the device is pointed towards the sun or bright lights.

A Gizmodo reader sent an e-mail to Apple’s support team that knew about the issue and the solution received from them was to “angle the camera away from the bright light source when taking pictures.”

Recently, Apple posted a support article on its website, advising users to reposition their camera when taking pictures.

Acording to CNET, Fotodiox, an Illinois-based company, sells a new case called the camHoodie that promises to “greatly reduce purple lens flare.”

The case uses a special lens cover that helps prevent excessive light from the sides coming into the camera and serves as a camera hood.

The CamHoodie is available for pre-order for $24.95, with a delivery date of October 30.
