With the modular nature of the FS100, what are other folks doing for a rain cover on this camera? Are you modifying gear from other cameras or is it garbage bags and gaff tape? Any pics would be cool. Thanks.

I've been using a backpack rain cover, and it actually works well. I am able to wrap the camera up pretty good and still have access to the functions.

something similar to this

Since I have that "exo-skelleton" cage, I wanted something that covers the whole shebang plus the monitor.

I ended up buying some waterproof clothe bags and shoe bags and heavy duty clear plastic sheets.
Than I made a pattern and talked the wife into sewing everything together.

Came out quite well. So far Im really happy with it, especially for just 10 bucks and some sweet talk to the wive. :happy:

Ah very nice thanks fellas. That beats garbage bags and gaff tape!

I was just wondering this myself.....I had to use the garbage bag and tape thing for a shoot a couple days ago, and since it pretty much rains constantly where I live, I was interested in finding anything that might work and not make me look like a total hack in front of clients.

I have an OpTech Rain sleeve which looks like it might cover the whole thing with some items rigged up, but I'm not sure. I like Frank's setup better.
