Now, I know that you have a waterproof Canon PowerShot D10...

...but you also used both the Canon EOS 450D, Canon EOS 30D (in picture # 8 !!!) and your preciouse Canon EOS 5D Mark II - and rigth at the end even a Panny TZ-5.

How do you keep them dry?


BTW - my favorite is #4 where the woman is hurry'ing across the street to catch the bus - I like the mood here, and the street-lamps in this shot create a rather nice and ondulating Vanishing Point.

And again - Thank's for the ride!

Walter,

Thank you. Sun's ok but nothing compared to a really heavy rain. The picture you referred to was taken under the ......... of the old opera house. I stood there for some hours, "pretending the sun was shining"

The picture with the woman running for the bus was taken from my balcony

You know there is always a solution in the cities. I'll get a rain poncho for the forests and the seaside

In Canada we have these funny hats which are small umbrellas which fit on the head like a sweat band. They are large enough to protect the camera and small enough not to be in the way.

Default I would like to see you wearing one of those, Bynx!

You'd be looking right silly, walking about with that contraption on your head!



Thank's, but no thank's - I rather stay inside.....

For those less flamboyant, there is a model in camouflage material so nobody can see it. Except when your eyes are open.

Gentlemen,

There is an expression in my language, "hundvńder", "dog weather". Doesn't mean that dogs necessarily like rain but rather that you have to (?!) "walk" them and let them relieve themselves, even when it's raining

But I have always liked rainy weather so it's no problem for me now that I have the dogs. That breed is also waterproof.

Rain saturates. Sun after rain is the greatest camera weather

About cameras: The only camera left untouched by humidity is the funny little Canon D10, waterproof down to 10 meters.

Now that I know a little more about photo I could very well have managed with that camera or almost any other smaller camera. Need some more WA and reach and a larger sensor for high ISO, though

Walter, looks like a description of your excellent Panasonic

Bynx, that mini umbrella might work as a sun shade to help avoiding flare etc in backlight photo. An ordinary cap, model american baseball, can also do the trick effectively, a true overseas contribution to photography

G'day

Torgny
