Professional cameras are expensive, and you don’t want to risk ruining yours in a single photoshoot.</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">Use a<strong> camera rain cover / rain sleeve</strong>; these are generally inexpensive. Some well-known brands include <a href=\"https://amzn.to/2PaWIKB\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Zacro</span></a>, <a href=\"https://amzn.to/37KpKr5\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">OP/TECH</span></a> and <a href=\"https://amzn.to/2HT9ycJ\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Movo</span></a> [Amazon Affiliate Links]. You can find waterproof camera cases, lens hoods and custom rain covers. The <a href=\"https://amzn.to/3cRYyKv\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Think Tank Photo Emergency Rain Cover</a> [Amazon Link] is another product with mostly positive reviews on Amazon.</p>\n<h2 class=\"p4\">How to weather seal a camera?</h2>\n<p class=\"p5\"><strong>Weather sealing</strong> a camera refers to having rubber gaskets in the seams to keep water from the camera’s internals. But if the lens doesn't have weather sealing also, water can still enter into the camera through the lens mount. Therefore, make sure to keep the lens mount dry.</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">Many cameras are already weather sealed, but don’t assume that your camera is necessarily sealed just because it’s a new model. Be sure to check with the camera manufacturer to verify.</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">If your camera isn’t weather sealed and you still want to risk shooting in the rain, consider getting a <strong>camera condom</strong> – yes, that’s a thing! A camera condom (or skin camera protector) is a rubbery skin for point-and-shoot cameras, similar to the cases that have been protecting iPods and iPhones for years. Well-known brands selling these include <a href=\"https://geni.us/cEAV5\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Surpassed</span></a> and <a href=\"https://amzn.to/2HILhFS\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Polaroid</span></a>. [Amazon Affiliate Links]</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">But, ideally, if you're really into shooting in rainy conditions, get a sealed camera body and lenses.</p>\n<h2 class=\"p4\">Backpack rain covers / waterproof backpack covers &amp; waterproof backpacks / waterproof camera bags &amp; camera cases</h2>\n<p class=\"p5\">If you’re out in the rain with your photography gear in your backpack or camera bag – but that backpack or bag isn’t waterproofed or properly covered – you could damage your gear, so consider a <strong>backpack rain cover</strong>, <strong>waterproof backpack</strong> or <strong>waterproof camera bag</strong>.</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">Some well-known <strong>backpack rain cover</strong> brands include <a href=\"https://amzn.to/3csh38n\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">MOOCY</span></a> and <a href=\"https://amzn.to/2V6SeIU\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Kerxinma</span></a>. [Amazon Affiliate Links]</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">Some well-known <strong>waterproof backpack</strong> brands include <a href=\"https://amzn.to/3bWYIjm\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">NEEWER</span></a> and <a href=\"https://amzn.to/2V9wkVy\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Endurax</span></a>. [Amazon Affiliate Links]</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">In terms of <strong>camera bags</strong>: the <a href=\"https://amzn.to/32e6u4f\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Peak Design Everyday Messenger Bag</span></a> [Amazon Affiliate Link] has a waterproof galaxy foam bottom liner and was recommended by notable product review website Wirecutter. The waterproof <a href=\"https://amzn.to/2uePAWn\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Tenba Cooper 13 Slim</span></a> [Amazon Affiliate Link] was also recommended by Wirecutter.</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">For added protection, consider wrapping your photography gear in <strong>padded equipment wraps</strong> before placing it inside any backpack. Some brands in this space are <a href=\"https://amzn.to/3bYuexM\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Ruggard</span></a> and <a href=\"https://amzn.to/37FntgM\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Ape Case</span></a>. [Amazon Affiliate Links]</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">Keep a <strong>microfiber cloth</strong> in your bag/backpack to wipe down your photography gear, if necessary. Some of these clothes are designed specifically for cleaning lenses, such as the <a href=\"https://geni.us/9zUjMlN\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Carson Stuff-It Super-Soft Microfiber Lens Cloth</a>&nbsp;and the <a href=\"https://amzn.to/2Vw828n\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">MagicFiber Microfiber Cleaning Cloth</span></a> [Amazon Affiliate Links].</p>\n<h2 class=\"p4\">Some Rain Pictures / Rain Images / Rain Photos / Water Drop Images</h2>\n<p class=\"p5\"><i><img src=\"https://cdn2.hubspot.net/hubfs/61352/blog-image-uploads/rain%20photography/water-drop-rain-photography-forweb.jpg\" alt=\"Water drop Rain Photography\" style=\"width: 600px; display: block; margin: 0px auto;\" width=\"600\"></i></p>\n<p class=\"p5\">Water drop.</p>\n<p class=\"p5\"><strong>Source</strong>: Shutterstock Royalty-free stock photo ID: 402271438</p>\n<p class=\"p6\">&nbsp;</p>\n<p class=\"p5\"><i><img src=\"https://cdn2.hubspot.net/hubfs/61352/blog-image-uploads/rain%20photography/umbrella-rain-photography-forweb.jpg\" alt=\"Rain drops falling from a black umbrella \" style=\"width: 600px; display: block; margin: 0px auto;\" width=\"600\"></i></p>\n<p class=\"p5\">Rain drops falling from a black umbrella concept for bad weather, winter or protection.</p>\n<p class=\"p5\"><strong>Source</strong>: Shutterstock Royalty-free stock photo ID: 323261750</p>\n<p class=\"p6\">&nbsp;</p>\n<p class=\"p5\"><i><img src=\"https://cdn2.hubspot.net/hubfs/61352/blog-image-uploads/rain%20photography/pug-rain-photography-forweb.jpg\" alt=\"Pug dog wearing orange raincoat Rain Photography\" style=\"width: 600px; display: block; margin: 0px auto;\" width=\"600\"></i></p>\n<p class=\"p5\">Funny pug dog wearing orange raincoat in raining day.</p>\n<p class=\"p5\"><strong>Source</strong>: Shutterstock Royalty-free stock photo ID: 660076444</p>\n<p class=\"p6\">&nbsp;</p>\n<p class=\"p5\"><i><img src=\"https://cdn2.hubspot.net/hubfs/61352/blog-image-uploads/rain%20photography/rain-window-rain-photography-forweb.jpg\" alt=\"Drops Of Rain On Blue Glass Bokeh Rain Photography\" style=\"width: 600px; display: block; margin: 0px auto;\" width=\"600\"></i></p>\n<p class=\"p5\">Drops Of Rain On Blue Glass Background.

Professional cameras are expensive, and you don’t want to risk ruining yours in a single photoshoot.</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">Use a<strong> camera rain cover / rain sleeve</strong>; these are generally inexpensive. Some well-known brands are <a href=\"https://amzn.to/2PaWIKB\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Zacro </span></a><span class=\"s2\">and</span>&nbsp;<a href=\"https://geni.us/AWcL\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Movo</span></a>&nbsp;[Amazon Affiliate Links]. You can find waterproof camera cases, lens hoods and custom rain covers. The <a href=\"https://geni.us/leGnC\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Think Tank Photo Emergency Rain Cover</a> [Amazon Link] is another product with mostly positive reviews on Amazon.</p>\n<h2 class=\"p4\">How to weather seal a camera?</h2>\n<p class=\"p5\"><strong>Weather sealing</strong> a camera refers to having rubber gaskets in the seams to keep water from the camera’s internals. But if the lens doesn't have weather sealing also, water can still enter into the camera through the lens mount. Therefore, make sure to keep the lens mount dry.</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">Many cameras are already weather sealed, but don’t assume that your camera is necessarily sealed just because it’s a new model. Be sure to check with the camera manufacturer to verify.</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">If your camera isn’t weather sealed and you still want to risk shooting in the rain, consider getting a <strong>camera condom</strong> – yes, that’s a thing! A camera condom (or skin camera protector) is a rubbery skin for point-and-shoot cameras, similar to the cases that have been protecting iPods and iPhones for years. Well-known brands selling these include <a href=\"https://geni.us/uqal4\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Bindpo</span></a> and <a href=\"https://amzn.to/2HILhFS\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Polaroid</span></a>.

The waterproof <a href=\"https://amzn.to/2uePAWn\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Tenba Cooper 13 Slim</span></a> [Amazon Affiliate Link] was also recommended by Wirecutter.</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">For added protection, consider wrapping your photography gear in <strong>padded equipment wraps</strong> before placing it inside any backpack.

Professional cameras are expensive, and you don’t want to risk ruining yours in a single photoshoot.</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">Use a<strong> camera rain cover / rain sleeve</strong>; these are generally inexpensive. Some well-known brands are <a href=\"https://amzn.to/2PaWIKB\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Zacro </span></a><span class=\"s2\">and</span>&nbsp;<a href=\"https://geni.us/AWcL\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Movo</span></a>&nbsp;[Amazon Affiliate Links].

But if the lens doesn't have weather sealing also, water can still enter into the camera through the lens mount. Therefore, make sure to keep the lens mount dry.</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">Many cameras are already weather sealed, but don’t assume that your camera is necessarily sealed just because it’s a new model. Be sure to check with the camera manufacturer to verify.</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">If your camera isn’t weather sealed and you still want to risk shooting in the rain, consider getting a <strong>camera condom</strong> – yes, that’s a thing! A camera condom (or skin camera protector) is a rubbery skin for point-and-shoot cameras, similar to the cases that have been protecting iPods and iPhones for years.

Well-known brands selling these include <a href=\"https://geni.us/uqal4\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Bindpo</span></a> and <a href=\"https://amzn.to/2HILhFS\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Polaroid</span></a>. [Amazon Affiliate Links]</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">But, ideally, if you're really into shooting in rainy conditions, get a sealed camera body and lenses.</p>\n<h2 class=\"p4\">Backpack rain covers / waterproof backpack covers &amp; waterproof backpacks / waterproof camera bags &amp; camera cases</h2>\n<p class=\"p5\">If you’re out in the rain with your photography gear in your backpack or <a href=\"/articles/top-10-camera-sling-bags-for-photographers-and-filmmakers\" rel=\"noopener\">camera bag</a> – but that backpack or bag isn’t waterproofed or properly covered – you could damage your gear, so consider a <strong>backpack rain cover</strong>, <strong>waterproof backpack</strong> or <strong>waterproof camera bag</strong>.</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">A well-known <strong>backpack rain cover</strong> brand is <a href=\"https://geni.us/eeIWr\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Sugoidan</a>.

Professional cameras are expensive, and you don’t want to risk ruining yours in a single photoshoot.</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">Use a<strong> camera rain cover / rain sleeve</strong>; these are generally inexpensive. Some well-known brands are <a href=\"https://amzn.to/2PaWIKB\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Zacro </span></a><span class=\"s2\">and</span>&nbsp;<a href=\"https://geni.us/AWcL\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Movo</span></a>&nbsp;[Amazon Affiliate Links]. You can find waterproof camera cases, lens hoods and custom rain covers. The <a href=\"https://geni.us/leGnC\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Think Tank Photo Emergency Rain Cover</a> [Amazon Link] is another product with mostly positive reviews on Amazon.</p>\n<h2 class=\"p4\">How to weather seal a camera?</h2>\n<p class=\"p5\"><strong>Weather sealing</strong> a camera refers to having rubber gaskets in the seams to keep water from the camera’s internals. But if the lens doesn't have weather sealing also, water can still enter into the camera through the lens mount. Therefore, make sure to keep the lens mount dry.</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">Many cameras are already weather sealed, but don’t assume that your camera is necessarily sealed just because it’s a new model. Be sure to check with the camera manufacturer to verify.</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">If your camera isn’t weather sealed and you still want to risk shooting in the rain, consider getting a <strong>camera condom</strong> – yes, that’s a thing! A camera condom (or skin camera protector) is a rubbery skin for point-and-shoot cameras, similar to the cases that have been protecting iPods and iPhones for years. Well-known brands selling these include <a href=\"https://geni.us/uqal4\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Bindpo</span></a> and <a href=\"https://amzn.to/2HILhFS\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Polaroid</span></a>. [Amazon Affiliate Links]</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">But, ideally, if you're really into shooting in rainy conditions, get a sealed camera body and lenses.</p>\n<h2 class=\"p4\">Backpack rain covers / waterproof backpack covers &amp; waterproof backpacks / waterproof camera bags &amp; camera cases</h2>\n<p class=\"p5\">If you’re out in the rain with your photography gear in your backpack or <a href=\"/articles/top-10-camera-sling-bags-for-photographers-and-filmmakers\" rel=\"noopener\">camera bag</a> – but that backpack or bag isn’t waterproofed or properly covered – you could damage your gear, so consider a <strong>backpack rain cover</strong>, <strong>waterproof backpack</strong> or <strong>waterproof camera bag</strong>.</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">A well-known <strong>backpack rain cover</strong> brand is <a href=\"https://geni.us/eeIWr\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Sugoidan</a>. [Amazon Affiliate Links]</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">Some well-known <strong>waterproof backpack</strong> brands include <a href=\"https://amzn.to/3bWYIjm\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">NEEWER</span></a> and <a href=\"https://geni.us/9oxGCQ\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Tarion</span></a>. [Amazon Affiliate Links]</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">In terms of <strong>camera bags</strong>: the <a href=\"https://amzn.to/32e6u4f\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Peak Design Everyday Messenger Bag</span></a> [Amazon Affiliate Link] has a waterproof galaxy foam bottom liner and was recommended by notable product review website Wirecutter. The waterproof <a href=\"https://amzn.to/2uePAWn\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Tenba Cooper 13 Slim</span></a> [Amazon Affiliate Link] was also recommended by Wirecutter.</p>\n<p class=\"p5\">For added protection, consider wrapping your photography gear in <strong>padded equipment wraps</strong> before placing it inside any backpack. Some brands in this space are <a href=\"https://amzn.to/3bYuexM\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">Ruggard</span></a> and <a href=\"https://geni.us/exNBfX\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\"><span class=\"s2\">kilofly</span></a>.

What to Know About Rain Photography: Protecting Your Camera in Rain

Rain Photography: Protecting Your Camera in Rain

Source: Shutterstock Royalty-free stock photo ID: 1095459860

NOTE: This article is specifically about protecting your gear from rain and is not applicable to underwater photography. Underwater photography poses different kinds of risks and requires additional underwriting information to insure. If you do any photography underwater (or at the surface of water), contact us to discuss your insurance coverage options.

How to protect a camera and lens from rain?

Insurance claims do occasionally arise from cameras being damaged by rain, so let’s review some best practices to prevent rain-related damage to your photography gear. Professional cameras are expensive, and you don’t want to risk ruining yours in a single photoshoot.

Use a camera rain cover / rain sleeve; these are generally inexpensive. Some well-known brands are Zacro and Movo [Amazon Affiliate Links]. You can find waterproof camera cases, lens hoods and custom rain covers. The Think Tank Photo Emergency Rain Cover [Amazon Link] is another product with mostly positive reviews on Amazon.

How to weather seal a camera?

Weather sealing a camera refers to having rubber gaskets in the seams to keep water from the camera’s internals. But if the lens doesn't have weather sealing also, water can still enter into the camera through the lens mount. Therefore, make sure to keep the lens mount dry.

Many cameras are already weather sealed, but don’t assume that your camera is necessarily sealed just because it’s a new model. Be sure to check with the camera manufacturer to verify.

If your camera isn’t weather sealed and you still want to risk shooting in the rain, consider getting a camera condom – yes, that’s a thing! A camera condom (or skin camera protector) is a rubbery skin for point-and-shoot cameras, similar to the cases that have been protecting iPods and iPhones for years. Well-known brands selling these include Bindpo and Polaroid. [Amazon Affiliate Links]

But, ideally, if you're really into shooting in rainy conditions, get a sealed camera body and lenses.

Backpack rain covers / waterproof backpack covers & waterproof backpacks / waterproof camera bags & camera cases

If you’re out in the rain with your photography gear in your backpack or camera bag – but that backpack or bag isn’t waterproofed or properly covered – you could damage your gear, so consider a backpack rain cover, waterproof backpack or waterproof camera bag.

A well-known backpack rain cover brand is Sugoidan. [Amazon Affiliate Links]

Some well-known waterproof backpack brands include NEEWER and Tarion. [Amazon Affiliate Links]

In terms of camera bags: the Peak Design Everyday Messenger Bag [Amazon Affiliate Link] has a waterproof galaxy foam bottom liner and was recommended by notable product review website Wirecutter. The waterproof Tenba Cooper 13 Slim [Amazon Affiliate Link] was also recommended by Wirecutter.

For added protection, consider wrapping your photography gear in padded equipment wraps before placing it inside any backpack. Some brands in this space are Ruggard and kilofly. [Amazon Affiliate Links]

Keep a microfiber cloth in your bag/backpack to wipe down your photography gear, if necessary. Some of these cloths are designed specifically for cleaning lenses, such as the Carson Stuff-It Super-Soft Microfiber Lens Cloth and the MagicFiber Microfiber Cleaning Cloth [Amazon Affiliate Links].
