Is there any way to protect my camera from snow and rain thatdoesn't cost alot. I know that substituting cost from quality isn't the way to go but right now I'm a little tight on the budget.

Is there a way I could make a create something to help protect it. I own a D70 with the 18-70mm lense nothing special.

Transparent plastic bag (so you can see the buttons, etc.) with a hole cut out for the lens, and an elastic band put around the bag at the end ofthe lens. Doesn't get any less expensive (or any more efficient) than that.

There is a company called fotosharp that sells inexpensive rain covers for cameras as well. Haven't used them but they look interesting.

Clear plastic rain pants cut up the middle, camera points out the leg which usually already has elastic in it, portion that used to be the middle covers the camera and even your head. You also get 2 covers out of each cut up rain suit. :lol:
