Attn: Gas Station Auditors

I learned something today. Maybe I was the only person who didn't realize this to begin with, but a customer at a station showed me a trick. He was pumping nearby and could see I was taking multiple pictures of the pump across from him. I was taking them because of those LED lights on the pump always blinking in sun glare, and I wanted the lights to be on for the pic I put on the report. This is probably a dilemma for all of us.

Usually when a customer approaches me, I get ready for them to ask me questions, but this guy was cool, and works for some company that deals with LED lights. He could tell I was having an issue with them. Simple trick he taught me: Put sunglasses in front of your camera lens. Stops the blinking, doesn't ruin picture quality. Works like a charm!

Thought I'd share, unless I was the only person who didn't realize this already!

Wow! Cool! Thanks for the tip. And no, you're not alone with that dilemma! Thank you!
I’ve always chalked that one up to “you get what you get.” What a great tip!

Seriously, nobody cares that you're offended.
Think its bad for a photo, try taking a movie of them dang lights. Get the same effect that you get watching propellers spin in Youtube videos. Although the deal with the sunglasses I will have to try.
