Waterproof DLSR Raincover
on 19 April 2014
5 stars - does what it says on the tin!! Simple to use and work out - even without the great instructions from an earlier review! But that reviewer is spot on!
It is robust enough for amateur and professional use, and that sudden downpour - you know the one - you wait hours for the shot - just as it's about to arrive - yup! The black wet cloud appears - with this it will protect enough to allow you to keep shooting - I use it with my Canon 70D - great for setting up your camera outside and sitting indoors on Wifi with your IPad - no intrusion - camera protected - winner all round.
Easy to use - even on a Tripod. Two bits on side allows you to stick your hands in to operate camera controls.
Clear perspective area to see screens etc, bright yellow tags to close and secure, zips are of good quality, black waterproof elsewhere, lens area is a stiff plastic type hood secured by Velcro - a little inflexible at first but soon eases up, acts a little like a hood - better than a "shower cap" from the "B & B"!!!! But a bit more expensive - however Cost of lenses V cost of this raincover or a cheap (Free!!!) shower cap???? Well I would pay out for this any day! Should also provide good protection agains Sand and Dust on a windy blowy day - so good for travel!
Came in a soft package - but in 24 hours! Forget comments from earlier not in a box or package damaged! It comes wrapped in the hood! - it folds into itself Squished but fine! Great for squeezing into the camera bag - lightweight and quick to slip on.
Overall - yea it does what it says on the tin!! As for how waterproof - well enough for most amateurs and probably a lot of professionals - why? Well getting caught in a sudden shower is one thing and it works just fine and of course great protection against sand, wind, dust and spray! However Tsunamis! Torrential downpours! Cyclones! Or it is just going rain heavily all day - probably not - so hit the pub and wait till it stops!!!
Basically - it works, easy to use, squeezes into your bag, and good value for money
ADVICE - buy - stick in your camera bag - and when the dark black wet cloud turns up - you will be grateful!!! - a good worthwhile and value buy! I like it👍🙏
