Wet Enough For You?
Went to Busselton. Saw the Busselton Camera Club at their weekend conference. It rained. It hailed. It blew. No volcanic eruption, but that was probably because the volcano got wet. I was largely indifferent to the downpour as I was inside and the camera club members were out walking through the bush and along the seashore, but fortunately I included a product in the trade table that sold very well.
The Op/Tec Rainsleeve protectors come two to a packet and feature a clear flexible PVC bag with a drawstring at the front to snuggle up to the rim of your lens and a small hole in the back to allow the eyepiece of your DSLR to poke out. Your hand fits in the bottom of the tube to let you control the camera. The rest of you may be soaked but your camera and right hand will be dry!
There are other rain protectors on the market made by other firms but this is one of those quick-use emergency products that is a real life saver for outdoors photographers. Keep one in your camera bag to stave off disaster.
Of course none of the above applies to the lady who exhibited her photos taken at the Busselton jetty. She can get as wet as she likes and so can her camera because she has them in underwater housings...that cost as much as the camera. But her colour photographs of nudibranchs were stunning.
