Op/Tech Rainsleeve Let’s You Shoot in the Rain

Op/Tech Rainsleeve

Shooting in the rain can be hazardous to your expensive digital SLR camera, so you should avoid it. Wait for the rain to stop.

But if you really have to shoot in the rain, Op/Tech USA has got you covered. Their Rainsleeve offers you a shield from the elements, allowing you the freedom to shoot outdoors even when there’s a bit of rain.

The Rainsleeve features a unique eyepiece opening that adapts to most camera viewfinders, allowing composition of shots through the camera’s lens, not through the plastic.

Op/Tech said the Rainsleeve can be used either handheld or on a tripod, and a small hole can be made to accommodate mounting longer lenses to the tripod.

So go ahead now and shoot in the rain. Me, I’ll wait for the waterproof Pentax K10D and just utilize the Rainsleeve to wrap my sandwich. You don’t want a soggy sandwich, do you?
