Re: Rain cover for the FS700

I have a camRade rain cover and it's well made. Haven't tried it in heavy rain, I think I'd forget the whole thing and have a drink.
In sand?, never even thought of that, a sandstorm? I'd do the same :)

When it's new it takes some time to put it on and get used to it. You have to study the weather forecast and how far you'll be away from the truck
to decide whether you'll fit it before you set out and start shooting.

Duck across the Adorama and try one.

Cheers.

Re: Rain cover for the FS700

I have the camrade, and like it for the most part. My only complaint is that it doesn't offer much protection to lenses. I have a couple weather sealed Nikons that I've used and not had problems with, but I wouldn't put anything else out there. I guess it's so you can access the lens easily, but it seems like you could have some kind of hood where you could still get at the lens from beneath.
