Dust/rain cover for my nx5

Hi All,
I am looking for a dust / rain cover to protect my NX5 from the elements, I shoot mainly weddings and last week had to resort to a garbage bag that I always carry to put over the camera to finish filming the ceremony. There has to be something commercially available... what do the rest of you use....

thanks in advance

Re: Dust/rain cover for my nx5

I have always used Portabrace rain covers. However I noticed the CamRade wetsuit design is more suitable to operating the camera (IMHO) and so for my EX1R, I've switched. They are made in the UK and I'm happy with the design. Especially the pocket to accommodate the flip out LCD.

I use a Kata rain cover for filming motorsports. Works great. About $100 from B&H.
