    Camera cover or case WHILE shooting? Lenscoat Bodyguard? Anybody using it?

    Does anybody use Lenscoat Bodyguard?

    Here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/LensCoat-LCBGP...uard%C2%AE+Pro

    I am looking for a solution to protect my cameras while we are shooting a wedding with my wife. I would love to keep the lens cover on the camera. I am not really interested in lens covers which protects photography gear in your bag.

    What do you recommend?

    lenscoat web site seems to say that those coats are to protect the camera while temporarily stowed -- look like a glove for the body with the lens poking out.

    Not sure this would be useful for a wedding photgrapher -- don't you need to have the camera available fairly quickly in those places? This coat looks like an interesting variation on the classic "never-ready" case, cause of fumbling and anger when you need the camera quickly.

    What's the big hazard to your gear shooting a wedding -- spraying champaigne? Tossed flowers?

    Useless for weddings, because you can't open the camera back to load and remove films quickly.

    Yes, I can see it now. I thought they make them for all cameras not only digital...

    I guess it's time for Sean to chose a epigram for Apug again.

    I told my son who's a bass player about "my pictures are better than they look", he was very amused and said the next time goes to an audition he's going to tell the producer his playing is a lot better than it sounds
