How do I go about shooting in the rain without destroying my camera? I've searched and couldn't find a topic on this. How do you people do it?

Ah very cool. I have a dimage A2, dont really know if any of those will fit, but the SS-ZOOM looks like it might work. Maybe I'll send em an email...

Heavy Duty gallon sized "Zip-Lock" type plastic bags work well. Drop your camera in, seal the bag, cut a hole for the front of the lens & duct tape around the lens hole. Try to get your camera set up for the lighting, etc, before sealing it & practice using the controls with the plastic over the camera before you get out in the rain...YMMV.

Thanks, I'll definitely have to try that. Would it be unsafe to cut a hole for, and tape around, the view finder?

I should have asked this question earlier, looks like this rainy spell has ended.
