I bought this rain cover for my Canon 400D with a grip, a 18-200 mm lens and a Speedlite 580EX II.
I was first considering making my own that would look like AquaTech ones but this one was cheap enough so I said what the hell...
It seem fine but the only problem I'm having is accessibility to a zoom and focusing ring on the aforementioned lens (and any other, for that matter). Luckily this lens isn't too small so the vinyl doesn't interfere too much. Do you have any ideas on how to use the zoom ring while the cover is on. It wouldn't be that much of a problem if this lens's front element didn't move when zooming but it does.
I would consider making adjustments to the cover but don't have the right solution yet.
Here are some:
- Perhaps a Velcro strap instead of the cord that it has now for attaching to the front of the lens?
- Or gluing a UV filter to the front of the cover so that it stays fixed when I use the zoom (but I think I wouldn't be able to screw the filter to the lens if it was fixed to the vinyl)?
Any other ideas?
