I am still afraid to take mine around water untill I figure this out.
I have used a rainhood from Ritz Camera (relatively inexpensive). It is an l-shaped plastic bag with a draw string front for the lens. Even though I was using a Pentax K20D and the DA*50-135mm lens which together are a weather sealed combination, I too was afraid to expose the gear to direct rain. The hood worked great: kept the camera dry as well as allowed me to take pictures.

Patty - yes, the first one is the paved walkway that you see in the third picture (forgot to mention that).

I've been impressed with the weather sealing on the K20/K7 cameras. Mine have been in the snow and light rain several times, including this downpour (though they weren't out that long). I'll keep the camera under my jacket for some extra protection, taking it out when I have something to shoot.

John, you would have to mention heat, no rain and all that summer stuff. Maybe all that Pennsylvania rain wasn't so bad - I'm not looking forward to summer at all.

Hope you get some rain soon, shouldn't you be heading into autumn soon?

I forgot about Roadside America - I haven't heard about it in a long time. It wasn't all that far away from where we were, it would have been a much better day trip for a rainy day. Oh well, perhaps we'll find our way back some day.
