Default How to keep rain off my Uzi

I did enter Rain in the search and it came up with no results. I can't believe that. Perhaps I am searching wrong.. Anyway...

Was at the football on saturday and it started to drizzle.. I really didnt want drops of rain o the camera. the lens hood kept it off the lens but how do you people keep it off the camera?

Also if anyones about (Have asked in lens) whats a "Linear Polarising Filter" is it actualy a polarizer and just described posh?

You could see if you can get an aquapac case for it, or use a clear baggie and have the opening where the lens is.

It's tough trying to find one for the C-2100, but here's an example of one with an extended lens camera:

I bought a camera a few years ago that came with one of these, and I thought it was a neat and tidy idea.

In El Paso, TX, rain is not much of a problem. We receive only 8 inches a year. I use a zip lock bag. I cut a hole in it for the lens hood to go through. I can still use the shutter and see the lcd panel. It is cheap but effective.
