Was wondering what you guys use to protect your camera from rains. I'm planning on going on a cruise to Alaska this September and not sure what product is best to protect my D60 from the rain. I have been looking at stuff on Amazon but not sure what actually is worth it or not to buy. Thanks for any help.
You can protect the camera body with something as simple as a plastic bag. This is something that the videographers in my company do as a matter of course when there's bad weather and they must shoot outside. But if you need to change lenses, be sure to wipe everything down before hand and make the lens change somewhere that's under cover.
As for the lens, I'd recommend a few things. First, get some filters for your lens. I try not to expose the lens itself. Hoya's filter kit
is a good starting point. I like to keep a neutral density filter on the lens of my Nikon D-50 whenever I shoot outside. And a lens hood
will help keep any water droplets from getting on the filter. Last, keep a lens cleaning cloth with you. You can try really hard to keep the lens dry. But if you get some water on it you're going to want any appropriate cleaning cloth to dry it off. And those are $10 or so.
Oh, and BrentS...AWESOME PICS!
