Digital Camera – SLR Rain Covers

Posted By On March 13, 2009 @ 12:27 PM In Digital Photography | No Comments

Camera Rain Covers are an absolute must for snapping photos in inclement weather, so I suggest using this great accessory to protect your expensive camera and lenses! Have peace of mind knowing that your gear will be protected and you can still get that perfect picture by using Camera Rain Cover. Hydrophobia is one of the leading brands that I have been using with complete satisfaction.

Here are the details:
Hydrophobia 300 – 600 is the first rain cover specifically designed to be pre-mounted for quick deployment. When in the field, where inclement weather can destroy a shot or gear, photographers need a simple and hassle free system for immediately deploying a rain cover to protect their SLRs and lenses. When it appears like it may rain, photographers attach the Hydrophobia over their lenses before going out into the field, rolling it up tight and out of the way. Then, when weather threatens, they simply unroll the rain cover over the rest of the lens and body, securely protecting both. The rain cover fits onto a 300 f2.8, 400 f2.8, 500 f4, and 600 f4, making it ideally suited for sports and nature photographers.



Hydrophobia comes with two extended sleeves through which photographers insert their arms to access all of their camera controls. It allows them to shoot vertically in either direction, and they can add a teleconverter to the lens by simply unzipping the back. (Eyepieces for different camera models are sold separately). The fabric used on the Hydrophobia is ten times as waterproof as normal fabric. Instead of a “spray” coating, a “film” is applied to the underside of the fabric, as well as a tricot mesh to protect it, making it a far more impenetrable three-layer fabric. In addition, a waterproof tape is applied to all seams, providing an even more waterproof barrier.

For professionals and amateur SLR shooters who can’t afford to lose a shot or to have their cameras and lenses damaged, the Hydrophobia 300 – 600 is a powerful new tool for getting the shot in even the roughest conditions.
