Hi and welcome in this video. Today I have a
quick tip for you how to build a rain or snow protection for the camera for less
than let’s say one euro, one pound, one yeng, whatever yeah for very cheap. I’m right now in Scotland and it rains a
lot. If you are not lucky like me because we have very great weather. Today it’s a
bit cloudy but we have almost no rain just two days there is almost nothing so
for Scotland in March. So what you can do when it’s raining or when it’s snowing
one thing first cameras usually can go through a lot of rain through a lot of
snow I photographed in Norway with that thick snow on my camera it still worked
but if it’s too wet or if it’s raining very heavy i use a protection for my
camera and it’s very easy to build one. You just need your lenshood, need a plastic
back and you need a rubber band and plastic bag is always good to have with
you in your photography back like I have right now. For rubbish so never leave
rubbish anywhere when you’re out in the nature and I have one plastic bag as
well for my protection so how does it work? First of all I screw my lens hood
on I have a polarizer now on it so it’s a bit more difficult to get it on.
Alright just like that alright. Always you sign on top that is the most important
thing so next I’m going to open the back let’s just place it over my camera like
that. So that’s the rain protection at first so you can use like that if you’re
just standing somewhere and you just want the camera to be out on the tripod
then it’s also rain protection but you want to photograph through the through
the back. So what you can do just do it like that. Take your rubber band put it
over your lens-hood like that. Then just open it up here on the top just a small
scratch and then just pull it over your lens-hood and boom done. No rain on your
lens, no rain on your camera. You can go like that through your camera still see
anything or everything and what I did once I even cut a small hole or scratch
the hole for my viewfinder and attached it just
with the thing over the viewfinder here so this small thing here. You can put it
off go over like that just clip it on it and then scratch a small hole and then
you can still see through your viewfinder. So it’s pretty easy, it’s
pretty tough it’s MacGyver like it’s all or it’s Jaworskyj like and I
use it a lot of time always when I need a fast rain protection. I also use like
real rain protection those heavy thermic things which cost like maybe 30 euro or
something you can put it over a camera but it’s not that comfortable to use
like just a plastic bag. So whenever you’re on rain or snow use your plastic
bag rubber band lens hood boom done. All right nice so if you liked the video
