Being caught out in the field when the heavens open isn't good for camera gear. Fear not, keep a clear plastic bag handy and follow our guide to help you carry on shooting when the heavens open.
|1. Bag it|
Take off your lens hood and place the bag over the lens so that a corner covers it and makes a cone shape.
|2. Cut it|
Keeping the bag taut, use your fingernail to rub the edge of the bag so it cuts it perfectly to the lens shape.
|3. Hood up|
Refit your lens hood taking care to make sure the bag doesn’t move and cover any part of the front element.
|4. Eye eye|
All SLR cameras have a removeable eye-cup. Take it off and pull the bag over it so the open end faces down.
Pinch or tear a small hole using your fingernail and pull it tight so it sits snugly around the eye-cup surround.
Place the eye-cup back over the mount so the bag sits in between the camera body and the eye-cup. Done!
