Hey, we've got a helluva snowstorm raging outside right now and I'd like to go take some winter pics of the horses. I have a Canon Rebel and was wondering if there are any precautions to take so the lens doesn't get wet? Thanks!
I have a friend that puts her camera in a Ziplock-type plastic bag. I guess, if the plastic bag is clean and your lens is clean, you should be able to see the bag... I've never tried it so I don't know. You could try it, I suppose, and see if you can see the bag with some test shots...
Sad day! I hope you figure something out! Snow pictures are awesome. Maybe if you took if out there in the bag, and really quickly whipped it out to take pictures, then put it back before it gets wet? Or kept the camera/lens covered with the bag, except for the very end? Maybe? Haha
Or use a ziploc but don't shoot through the bag, just hold the bag closed around the lens. It can be a pain in the butt to do, but your image quality shouldnt suffer and it'll protect your lens pretty well.
