Pick up a pack or two of these and keep them in your bag. They're really easy to get on and off, and will protect your rig in the event that a small drizzle turns into an all-out rain storm. I keep some with me, and I'm glad I did last Spring when a random snowstorm interrupted a Baseball Game I was shooting.

I was frozen, but my gear stayed dry!

u/[deleted] · 14 pointsr/photography

OP/Tech rainsleeve would be perfect. Got to be careful with the front of the lens though. UV filter and tape + lens hood comes to mind.

u/SwampYankee · 13 pointsr/photography

You never really know until it's too late. I would not push a non weather proofed one too far. 5DIII has taking a strong rain and worked out, but I had a weather sealed lens on it. either way it's not covered under warranty. I've heard of someone washing salt water off a Canon 1DX with a hose but I don't think I'd try that. You really want to be able to take your camera out in bad weather so why not fill out your next amazon order with a couple of these?:

For future reference, I use these cheap plastic bag style covers. At $3.50 a piece, they're cheap enough to throw one in every camera bag and glove compartment you have.

u/imsellingmyfoot · 3 pointsr/photography

Light(er) rain, I'll use an OPTech Rainsleeve. They're cheap, reusuable a few times, and easy to set up.

Heavy rain, I don't have experience with, other than putting my camera away.

For a canoe trip, I would highly recommend looking into getting a dry bag. Something like this from Lowepro or something else from their Dryzone series.

u/Archie96 · 3 pointsr/SonyAlpha

Yes you can but to be sure I use these rain sleeve things...

I also read the battery door hinge is the water-weak-spot so I use blu tack on that, not pretty, but effective.

u/cassadagaohyeah · 3 pointsr/WeddingPhotography

For a wedding I had last Fall, I got a waterproof sleeve off Amazon - and a super fashionable headband-umbrella. I looked ridiculous but the guests got a kick out of it and the photos looked great all things considered!

u/fauxtodd · 3 pointsr/WeddingPhotography

I shot a whole bunch of rainy weddings in 2018 (a very wet wedding season for Pennsylvania). My second to last wedding for the year was in the low 40s with a consistent heavy rain. With that said, here some things I've learned...

-Change of clothes, including shoes and socks. Hopefully it won't be cold for you, but being wet for the reception sucks.

-Good protection for your camera. I used these: because they are cheap, but they are hardly convenient. I'd recommend practicing with them, because they change your access to controls, lens zoom, etc. I can't comment on other rain sleeves, hopefully they are much easier/nicer to use!

-Ditto on backlit umbrella shots. Those are tons of fun! You'll probably want an umbrella with white interior and black exterior for those shots. An all white umbrella works, but you'll see the couples shadow I inside. An all black umbrella would be too dark. You can also shoot backlit without any umbrella:

-Having nice umbrellas to hand to the couple is a thoughtful gesture. I like all-white umbrellas or there are nice clear umbrellas, too:

-Be ready for the couple to not want to be outside for anything besides the ceremony. It stinks, but it's their day. Have some indoor posing ideas ready.

I just keep a couple cheapo rain sleeves in my bag.

Like These

u/ageowns · 3 pointsr/photography

I put a UV filter on my gear, and this $6.50 (two pack!) rain sleeve from Amazon to shoot a GWAR show. There was a lot of blood.
rain gear in action

There is no money in shooting concerts. You will not get very far shooting events like that without a portfolio. Shoot what you can, have a good time.

Be careful with your gear though

u/BearFan34 · 3 pointsr/VisitingIceland

I just ordered a rain sleeve to allow me to shoot in the rain

u/replicant_nexus · 3 pointsr/SonyAlpha

Sure, it's here

u/cialowicz · 2 pointsr/photography

You can fashion something similar to an OP/TECH rainsleeve out of a very large plastic or zip-lock bag.

Bad weather makes good photos!

u/Kethean22 · 2 pointsr/canon

Optech has cheap ones that you can pick up at a local store. They are shaped for a camera and run about $7 for a 2-pack. I reuse them and they are pretty good for as cheap as they are! You can find them here.

u/la-fours · 2 pointsr/photography

I use this but it's very easy to make your own.

u/greenistheneworange · 2 pointsr/AskPhotography

A rain sleeve and an umbrella do it for me. I've also superclamped a camera to the umbrella to aid with holding it (too few hands).

u/rogue_smackles · 2 pointsr/photography

a rainsleeve would work great -

Also Get a filter for the end of your lens. Don't buy the cheapest one going but you don't need a b+w either. You can get decent uv filters for reasonable money. There are pages dedicated to discussing filter clarity and options for size. I don't know what size your lens is but you can check this out. It will Give you any info you need I'd think l. Not only will it help rain stay out but it will allow you to wipe off the filter without concern of scratching the lens.

Here are the results of you just want to see which ones won and by what margin. Pay attention to the model numbers. Many manufacturers have a bunch of models

This is a modern filter that rates very well for 72mm lenses. And it's under $50

u/lukejc1 · 2 pointsr/AskPhotography

It's up to you whether or not the extra protection from weather sealing is worth the money. It was for me but honestly you'll probably be ok with plastic grocery bag route or these rain covers. Both work well enough.

u/kickstand · 2 pointsr/photography

K-5 is a great choice. To get those big skies, you will probably want to budget for a superwide lens, as well.

u/brianbphoto · 1 pointr/photography

We get some heavy snow and rain on occasion so I keep a cheapo $6-7 rain cover in my bag as a "just in case". Light and doesn't take up much room.

Here's the link:

Tip: I don't put my hands inside the bag when I'm using it though to avoid condensation. I just hold on the outside.

u/renegade · 1 pointr/VideoEditing

There are numerous designs of rainsleeves and raincoats for cameras;
Also anti-fogging wipes for lenses

For anyone doing seriously hardcore water work you can get a diving case which will be completely waterproof including at depth, but they tend to cost a few thousands.

u/danecreekphotography · 1 pointr/photography

You want a rainsleeve.

There are fancier versions, but I've owned them and they are too hefty to carry and too much of a pain to use. The rainsleeves are dirt cheap and work great.

u/bulksalty · 1 pointr/photography

You can make a cheap one from a garbage bag (or other liquid proof bag and a rubber band) or there are commercial products ranging from inexpensive to more expensive.

u/bear_sheriff · 1 pointr/AskPhotography

I have a Nikon D600 and I've used these OpTech Rainsleeves in the past (also for my old D5100 and D40x), they are easy to pack, easy to use, and although they do the perfect job of blocking out elements like you are anticipating (I've used them in drizzle and in snow and they've been great).

Edit to add it's nice to not break the bank but have some decent protection.

u/ksuwildkat · 1 pointr/pentax

Ill add - while not WR, I have used the DA35 in some pretty rough conditions without any ill effects. The danger is not so much to the lens itself as it is of liquid entering between the lens body and the camera body and then entering the delicate electronics of the camera. There was a kickstarted for an add on rubber seal but it was 1) limited to Canon and Nikon and 2) didn't work well.

Another solution is a rain sleeve. I use these with my Tamron 70-200mm. One qualifier - I would not use these in hot/humid conditions. Your hand is 98 degrees. You will fill this thing with moisture under grey/cold conditions in a few hours. In Louisiana rain storms, a few minutes. Nothing worse for electronics.

As others have said, if you are tossing away your 18-135, toss it my direction :)

u/fatlace · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Pancakes make the world taste better

Photos in the rain make the world much wetter.

The world would be sad if the camera breaks

So sad that it wouldn't be lifted by the taste of pancakes.


u/HVPhoto · 1 pointr/photography

I have done about four of these with no ill side effects to my gear. But there is a lot of preparation involved.

  1. Get a camera rain coat. these work well for me. I usually use the lens hood and rubber bands going from the lens into the camera to ensure snugness.

  2. Plan on using one lens and use a UV filter. If you MUST switch lenses, make sure you have canned air or a blower and not to use it on the lens itself but rather to blow off all of the debris that you can. And of course, step off to the side.

  3. Use a camera bag that has a rain cover. Easier to clean.

  4. Expect some cleaning time for your camera. I use a DataVac ( to blow everything off and follow up with using a damp cloth to clean the outside of the camera.

    Its do-able and I always think its a lot of fun, but you have to be prepared. I used my D600 for the shoots and even switched lenses without negative outcomes.
u/techsmack · 1 pointr/photography

Lots of options. Ranging from cheap disposable, to expensive underwater capable housings. Depends on how serious you want to get.

u/lysergicfuneral · 1 pointr/photography

Yeah it's a feature mainly meant for people who might shoot in rain or snow and it's usually found on the more expensive cameras. Not knowing your budget, that was just an ideal case.

After thinking about it, the fan is probably still a good idea, but another cheap solution is to get a rain sleeve. Something along the lines of this:

It should keep most of the moisture out of the lens and camera. Hell you could even cut some holes in a large ZipLock bag and make something similar. Good luck!

Edit: A few more options:

  • Get a GoPro or similar camera that has a waterproof housing.

  • A Nikon AW1 (possibly used). A small, mirrorless, waterproof camera with a small, but useful lens selection.

  • A good-quality, "tough" point and shoot, which are also waterproof.
