I guess it's not possible due to the "bubble shaped lense".

I have the Tansistion lense. It is like wearing sunglasses in the bright light, and clear as day in the darker areas. I dont know what i did before i had these. And i dont know why not every company/ person is making/ using these. Best lense ill ever use.

There isn't really a "best" one. It's all about what you're playing in. If it's sunny out you may want a dimmed lens. If it's shady or overcast you will probably like a clear one. Reflective lenses work similarly to dimmed lenses. If you play where light changes enough you will probably like a photochromatic one.

It doesn't really matter if you're "sniping" or doing whatever, the same idea applies to wearing a mask in general.

Agreed again. Photochromatic are the best lens EVER. Darken in the bright light, clear in the shade. Heavenly. I agree, i don't know why every company doesn't do them.

My only problem is that the chromatic seem to change at a rate way too slow to matter, when dealing with glasses at least. Is there any correlation here? What kinda change speed are we talking about?

It's really fast with the V-Force lenses. I have seen some glasses that are just about instant though...

Most glasses I've seen change fast enough that you don't even notice a difference most of the time.

But Photo chromatic changes from clear to tinted (for when it's sunny, in which case clear isn't easier to see through).

I'm not a sniper, I do a little of everything, but I've got a yellow lens in my mask and it's worked pretty well for me. It does seem to bring the details out a little more than clear. The downside is it's more or less like looking through night-vision, and by that i mean you can see the details, but the colors are a bit skewed. You get used to it after a while, and it's not that bad. I'd say yellow or clear, as we all know what clear looks like.

I would say yellow.

In my experirence it brightens up everything and kinda cuts through shadows.
definately not smoke/mirrored as they make it harder to see in the woods (though they do look bad buttocks)

if you are worried about blending in you could alway cover your head/lens with netting/mesh

So where can I find v-force profiler photocromatic lenses? I don't think Special Ops has them. Do they?

I use Dye I3's with the orange HD lenses. These are GREAT in woodsball, as they make people in camo stick out a bit more.

i think the best lens for sniping is the amber ... i have played in deep woods as well as lightly covered areas .. and the anmber seems to "brighten" the areas you are looking at much better .. i don't know if it is a type of filtering, but when there is a lot of cover ( and if you are sniping, you will be in cover, right ? ) it is fantastic for bringing out people colors and camo colors. plus you should get a camo goggle skin to keep down any reflective glint from your lens.
