    Great stuff! I’m using shower cap for years. Much better and cheaper than my expensive and heavy Kata raincover.

    I prefer to use a condom over the lens.

    Excellent work. If it rains, use an umbrella. Please, more pro tips like this.

    It is almost 3 am,so I will make it quick…I live in Pacific Grove, Ca. on Ocean View Blvd.

    I was on the trail behind the fence, and the waves were not wild. I still got a wave over my head; if I had been on the rocks I would have been dead. Many have been!

    Just buy the right stuff which is weather sealed than you don’t have to worry about anything. This means Olympus 4/3 or Pentax, sorry for Nikon, Canon and some others. Weather sealing just doesn’t mean that your body is weather sealed up to a certain level, also your lenses need to be weather sealed. A rubber ring for the mount doesn’t help. Beyond rainy days, also think of a wet forehead or wet hands during summer!
