This may be the wrong catagory for this post - feel free to move it if it is under the wrong catagory admin. but i thought it might make for a pretty descent topic.

We all see great photos of Models in the studio (controled conditions) or outside when it's over cast - perfect days morning, noon and night. On beaches - or in the snow. All in great or ideal weather conditions or in controled climates as mentioned.

But, what about shooting or being on a shoot and the weather is or turns bad? Great shots can be had during these conditions. That is a given and been proven. But still what about the gear?

My best gear is not plastic. Humid or wet weather conditions do affect it. Internally as well as externally. It's not electronic but i can only image the guy with a Hassy and a 22mp digital back tethered or not teathered getting caught in adverse or a change in weather conditions and his fears.
With most of todays cameras though plastic - they are all electronic and the effect this weather has on it let alone the lenses can't be a good one.

So what do you do? What are some of the tricks of the trade if you will? Obviously you don't see everyone throwing out their cameras or lenses after a shoot every time it was humid or rains or snows.

I realize i may be asking trade secrets here, but divulge away,
- So what do you do? What are some of the tricks of the trade if you will?what do you do to protect your gear in different adverse or less than ideal weather conditions? Especially for humidity were the moisture is atomized gets into everything. It's a daily thing for many at certain times of the year. And natural fog settings make for a great prop.

Pre shoot solutions to get it ready for adverse conditons if you can
- during the shoot solutions
- and especially post care solutions after having been in adverse conditions?

thanx

To answer my own question in part - at least for wet weather I found this by Kata.



and one by AquaTech and the Shutter hat.

The one above by Kata though it would fit a SLR and may fit a Small MF - and it is a great design for sticking your hands inside - like a car when your inside and it's raining to me would suggest it would fog up and create moisture condensation inside.

All the ones i found thus far are for SLR - I haven't found any for MF or even LF. The others have the backs open for DSLR viewing of the screen which leaves the back open to the elements.

Mist and Fog easily can get in - as well - changing the lens jsut opens the camera up to these elements as well.

And this doesn't answer the fact of what to do in Dry dusty conditions.

I haven't found anything conserning after care for cameras yet.

I did find the Shutter Tent which is a small tent for protecting gear bags which looked interesting enough and might provide a small place to do lens changes. Like a never tent never leaks at the seams or if you touch the material while wet or raining, right?

A larger stand in Change tent might work in remote locations to shoot from - but not in all situations. and limits mobility greatly.

I don't know the anwers yet - but hey - I'm trying.

No replies?

Whats up with that guys? You giving me the silent treatement? Didn't that kind of thing go out with the seventies or something?

Don't tell me you guys are still pissed about the Photo Realistic 3D thread I started last time i was here?

No biggy if that is how it is to be, If you'd prefer - Just have RG or site Admin kill my account... it's not going hurt my feelings if that is how you want it.

It's not like we're married or joined at the hip

I'll go my way - you go yours.

All the best to you.

Hmn whats the go hormones playing up!
no replys well most photographers don,t get there gear wet if they can help it, several years ago middle of summer shot a wedding in the rain and its a pain my solution held my eos 5 under a tasmanian bluey all wool and my camera got through unscathed just shot and then tucked it under my coat, died a thousand death wether the shots came out but thankfully they did ,the video stuffed up and not to many others got any reasonable shots.
Bought an eos 3 the next week for the better weatherproofing and along came digital, how would they go don,t know not much better i suspect.
Looks a good system that you have posted although pretty static for
model and glam shots,landscapes it looks to fit the bill nicely.
My LF schnieder 180-315 convertable locked up on me after the lightest of showers came over the location we were shooting just put my dark cloth over the camera took 6 shots came home and unloaded left the camera set up in my case 2 weeks later rusted shutter blades argg. took me several months and 6 or 7 pull downs of the shutter to rectify ended up using silacone spray and the shutter has never worked better.
If You are still here there are some of my experiences
regards
