Do you keep your cam in your bag straight away or just keep on shooting? I wanna shoot but I'm afraid that my cam will get wet T.T Do give me your suggestions and tell me what's your way of working into this problem ^^

Take out a towel to cover your lens and camera body. Then continue shooting ;) That's what I do.

Haiz... Your dSLR can take a drizzle lah... If there's really something worth shooting. If it's a massive downpour, then it's probably wiser to keep the camera.

i sound the alarm bells and then i cuddle my camera after wrapping it in 20 layers of oilskin to make sure that the water doesn't get to it.

after that i spend 20 minutes cursing and swearing at the sky for trying to take my baby away from me :angry:

i ve shot in thunder storms before. about 4 or 5 times. but i use a d200(weather sealed) and mostly old manual lenses (well built). wasnt an issue exp one of the times i shot for about 30 min, then the vf fogged up a little. after a holiday in the dry cabinet it was fine.

Get a rain sleeve. The one from optech quite cheap.

I will continue shooting, as long as i dont get drench. My D90 has been fully wet a few times and no problem there. I will hide it if it is raining heavily though, even weather proof is not same as water proof.

Few drops are OK but it is always better to be safe than sorry.
I put my camera on my bag and use the All Weather covers :cool:
I had a case when I was on the footpath, rain stopped alredi and one car splashed my gears :eek: I immediately cleaned with a towel and thank God!!
