DIY DSLR Camera & Lens Rain Cover / Coat
March 26, 2010
I’m Glad I have Glad in the kitchen. During rainy season or any season, it’s always a good idea to have a ziplock or glad freezer bags in your camera bag. You can use it to cover your camera and lens from rain, just cut a hole on the other end, and you now have a water resistant protective rain cover for your camera.
But remember, it’s not sealed, it’s not water proof, and you cannot use it in soaking rain, but in moderate rain, it can surely help you get the job done.
Sure there are DSLR Camera and Lens Rain covers from company’s like Aquatec, ThinkTank, Tenba and others, and it’s sure is a good idea to get one of these, but they are very expensive. They can ran from $100 and up, and to some people, like me, I might as well save the money for some other important things than to get an expensive rain cover.
Here are some photos of my DIY DSLR Lens Rain Cover/Coat in action:
