Protecting camera from the elements
I have a dlsr and would love to use it to film skiing. I was wondering how people on here protected there cameras from snow?
i normally protect my vx and dvx by feeding them smashed up bits of dslr cameras
Simply don’t bring it out when it’s pissing rain or dumping snow. If you’re filming a street spot or something, you could stick an umbrella down the back of your shirt or use some sort of bag laid over the camera body but leaves the lens open to film.
on some real advice i like using regular old plastic shopping bags and just sticking the lens through a hole in them. just be careful because this could also cause condensation to form inside the bag.
I don't have a weather sealed lens so I only run into problems when it gets below zero really. When it's snowing I'll stick the cam under my shirt between clips
Most bodies are weatherized nowadays. If not garbage bag and duck tape.
