    Has anyone bought a sunshade for the iPad Air to use with the P3 TX?

    I'm toying with getting one like this..

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/321751999385?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2648&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

    The only thing that is making me hesitate is the rubber grips on the top and bottom of the TX clamp are not very deep and I'm wondering if I place this kind of sun shade underneath the iPad Air there might not be enough room for both to fit comfortably without risking the iPad falling off?

    Is anyone using one like this on the P3 TX?

    The Summitlink shade is similar. And, if you look at the photos, you can see the rubber grips clear the tablet. So, I'm assuming the one you linked will probably clear it too.

    Here's another option that sits on top of the tablet:

    Yes the HoodiVision does look good but with the price of shipping to the UK it's nearly double the price!

    But with the HoodiVision it looks like there's nowhere for the top clamp to pop through?

    I have one of these they don't fit great to say the least, i have had to cut it about a lot but it does the job now, and for the price i was willing to take the gamble cutting it about.

    That's exactly my thoughts - for the price I don't mind "customising it"...
    Can you show me a pic or two of your handywork :)

    I have a sun shade, but if you bump up the exposure to 1.6 and lock the AE, it works pretty good with out it. Tried it yesterday.
