    My 4x5 was a Crown Graphic. I really didn't worry about it getting wet, but usually ended up shooting it from under the opened lift-gate of my Cherokee. Got me out of the wind, too.

    For 35mm, I cover my tripod-mounted camera outfit with a hotel showercap. Those are great. When taking the picture, I just pull it off for the exposure. A little water won't bother the rig. It's plenty tight. The "Ti" versions of the OM line are weather-sealed.

    If conditions are extreme, I'm using my Di*ital Olympus E-1 which is one-step short of being a Nikonos.

    When you turn your camera on, does it return the favor?

    I wear a backpack and then stuff the open umbrella between my back and the packpack. In many cases, I am able to tie it in to position. That means hand free and dry...works every time...but you end up having to keep you back quite straight Kal

    My low tech answer...... Take a gallon size ziploc bag, and place it open end down. Insert camera, prism finder, lens and film back into the bag and using a sharpie pen, and draw a line on one edge that is just a bit smaller than your lens diameter. Cut the line with a sharp knife and insert lens through the slit and push it just so the bayonet mount clears it and then install the lens hood. Then push down the the top of the bag onto the the viewfinder window and cut a slit like before. Push the prism finder eyepiece through it and secure with rubber band. You now have a portable sytsem that will take quite a soaking from above yet you can still get in underneath to crank the fillm wind, and to replace film backs etc. seems to work very well and it is SOOOOOOO cheap.
