Rain cover?

Hi everybody,

To this date I haven't noticed a rain cover specifically designed for this camera. Is there anything out there?

Hi Andrea,

Not sure if you're still looking, but Kata do a couple of rain covers that they list as working with the HVR-HD1000U/E. Their RC-1 and RC-10 Pro Rain Covers are available from various places online.

I'll be getting a RC-10 in the next couple of weeks myself, so I'll be able to say what I think once it arrives.

Have Fun,
Jim

Rain cover

I bought one last month from an ebay shop, Indikit, for less that 40 and it seems well made, with lots of adjustments etc. It's not specifically for the HD1000, but suits it well.

Wel, I got the Kata RC-10 and used it over the weekend while I filmed a 5-a-side football (soccer) tournament in the glorious Irish summer. The cover is nice and quick to put on, and with all the adjustments fits well. A fifteen minute heavy downpour with a driving wind (see? I said it was summer(-: ) showed it really is rainproof, keeping the camera dry even if the camerman got soaked...

I'm happy enough with the RC-10, and will gladly reccomend it to others.

Have Fun,
Jim.

PortaBrace just announced a new rain slicker specifically for this camera. It's about $200 at their website. I assume it is or will be available through B&H as well.

Edit: Not at B&H yet, but here's the PortaBrace web page for the product:
