    Of course the downside of any of these solutions is that they work best for hand-held cameras. Once you get into large format stuff, what do you do? A giant golf umbrella I guess...

    There are lots of ways and methods to keep rain off your equipment but simply put, unless you can afford monetarily and physiologically to expose your equipment to moisture, best to stay indoors.-Dick

    Working only in good weather really limits your possibilities.
    Most of the time, in the light, drizzly rain common here, I just keep the camera in the bag or under a jacket, except when shooting, and wipe off any moisture whenever I can. I've never had a problem, with ether electronics or all mechanical cameras.

    On one outing with the view camera when a storm was pressing, I bought one of the extra large ziplocks sold for storing pillows and such in.
    The rain stopped just in time though, and I didn't actually need to use it.
