An umbrella for your camera. Sometimes you see a new product that just makes you smile, not knowing what to make of it, at first. And then you realize that it just could work.
The Probrella is one such product. You see it on a fair day, and you just smile. But when youâ€™re out shooting and it starts to rain, oh, you just wish you had one!
The Probrella not only protects your precious DSLR and lens from the rain. On a sunny day, it can also shield your camera from glare. Of course, in a bind, you can use it too as an umbrella although itâ€™s a bit smaller than a regular one.
It attaches to your gear by way of an attachment to the underside of your camera, via its tripod screw mount. Itâ€™s adjustable; the Probrella tilts, slides up or down, and adjusts from side to side, giving your camera 360-degree protection from rain, snow or sun glare.
It even has a smaller sibling, the Popabrella, which works the same way for smaller digicams and camcorders. (â€œâ™« Iâ€™m shooting in the rain, â™ª Iâ€™m shooting in the rainâ€¦â™«â€)
