Petrol Bags Intros Rain Cover For DSLR Cameras

Now DSLR owners have a way to work safely in adverse or unpredictable weather: the new Transparent DSLR Plus Rain Cover from Petrol Bags, a Vitec Group brand.
Petrol Bags' latest weather protection system is especially designed to shelter and safeguard DSLR cameras fully equipped with video accessories, such as a viewfinder, follow focus, camera plate, etc. - on or off a tripod. Constructed of transparent polyurethane for maximum visibility and handsome black waterproof nylon, it offers quick and easy access to all camera features.
Petrol Bags' ingenious one-piece design makes the cover extremely easy to install while shooting. A new front section of ripstop fabric and transparent polyurethane that attaches to the cover via hook and loop material provides an additional shield to protect a telephoto lens. The rigid front hood section comes outfitted with a hotshoe connector that stabilises the raincover on camera. On top of the hood, a 6" polypropylene track allows for the addition of an on-camera light and/or wireless receiver. At the rear, a tight auxiliary cord anchors the cover around and protects the viewfinder.
The new Transparent DSLR Plus Rain Cover (PD510) will be available in July.
