A wet camera can be expensive to repair. To keep your camera dry, get a waterproof camera bag, a camera rain cover, an umbrella, a lens hood, and a towel. “Your lens can get foggy, so you have to use your lens cloth a lot. I always use my lens hood when I shoot in rain, because it helps keep the rain off the lens. But if it’s really windy, or you’re in a downpour, that doesn’t always work,” says Jones. Camera rain gear doesn’t need to be complex or expensive. Even a plastic bag wrapped around your DSLR camera is a good precaution.
If moisture does get inside your camera and you see it fog up internally, dry it as fast as possible to avoid mildew buildup or internal water damage. A little moisture today can spell out big problems down the road.
