    Yashica Mat Rain Cover.

    I just recently starting using a Yashica Mat-124 that i purchased a while back. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions on shooting in the rain. What do you use a rain cover? How well does it work with a WLF?

    I have an umbrella clamp that goes on my tripod. It works okay when there isn't a lot of wind. Otherwise i use a big plastic zip lock bag.

    I just tuck it in my jacket and pull it out really quick to take the shot.

    rain

    In the late 1950s through the late 1960s I used a Rolleiflex while working as a pro photographer and then I used a Yashicamat professionally from the late 1960s through the late 1970s. I never used any kind of rain cover for my cameras. These boxes will stand a lot of abuse. I still have my Yashicamat and use it once in a while. I fact I now have two Yashicamats. The "new" one has German-made lenses. I love the camera and the quality I get from the big negatives.

    With my T.L.R. I use a plastic pedal bin liner that I carry in my pocket in case it rains.

    Thanks everyone for the input. I want to try shooting some pictures of lightening and this has helped a lot. Now if we just get that thunderstorm.

    Sounds like a plan. Rainy day's and ominous sky's make beautiful images forsure.

    This is what you need. You'll be the center of attention.
