I am sure they have a better term than this, but does anyone have a source for camera condoms to keep the weather out if it decides to rain?

These work REALLY well...

A light amount of rainfall shouldnt hurt anything, even without a sleeve...keep your camera somewhat sheltered under an umbrella, inside your coat, etc...but in good downpours, the Op/tec sleeves work great!

Or just get creative with some electrical tape(waterproof once its stuck in place to a dry surface and easily forms to detailed areas) and some clear bags.

For true water proof check your scuba shops (http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-645/069711/Sea---Sea-MDX-40D-Housing-for-Canon-EOS-40D-50D.html) :D



Of course they do make less expensive ones :D

Ehhh, not exactly....the E3 has about the same weather sealing as the pro lines from Canon and Nikon and both of them will fail if you get em really wet...the E3 will too.

A 5 dollar glorified plastic bag will save you much sorrow...
