The RAINSLEEVE-Flash from OP/TECH USA is a must-have accessory for avid outdoorphotographers, offering a shield from the elements that fits easily in the pocket or camera bag.
It can be used either handheld or on a tripod. If shooting with a long lens, the tripod mount can be attached directly through the pliable plastic. If shooting using an OP/TECH USA neck strap, simply attach the quick disconnects directly through the pliable plastic. (Note: verify that you have a positive lock on the quick disconnects.)
The drawstring enclosure will fit any lens up to seven inches (17.8 cm) in diameter and up to 14 inches (35.6 cm) long.
The RAINSLEEVE-FLASH offers the same great features as the original RAINSLEEVE yet can accommodate a camera shoe-mounted flash. It effectively shields a camera, lens and flash unit from the elements and fits easily in the pocket or camera bag.
It also features a unique eyepiece opening that adapts to most camera viewfinders, allowing composition of shots through the camera's lens, not through the plastic. All camera, lens and flash controls are easily seen and operated through the RAINSLEEVE-FLASH.
Conveniently packaged with two per pack, RAINSLEEVE-FLASH is a great way to make sure camera and flash unit gear is protected in any kind of unexpected weather.

Worked well on a recent trip to the rainforests of Costa Rica. Inexpensive.

I use this in light rain or in a very humid location where you can get your moisture on your camera very easily. It is a good very basic transparent plastic to cover the camera. You can easily see through to see the camera settings. It can be easily folded and carried in a pocket. Sometime the auto focus does work incorrectly, so have to stretch out the plastic, same thing with the remote sensor.
This Rainsleeve was purchased for a camera with a Tamron 18-270 mm lens. It fits nicely and works just fine.
Its just as described in the picture and easy to use.
Perfect for those rainy days when you don't want to stay inside.
see my review of the other sleeve.
I always keep one or two of these in my camera bag - you just never know when the threat of rain might ruin a great photo op, regardless of the forecast. I have ThinkTank rain gear as well, but find that I use these more often due to convenience. I haven't endured a hard rain, just light drizzle. I do recommend using a few rubber bands around the lens hood to keep the sleeve in place. Adding a nice, wide rubber band to the package for this product will give it 5-stars.
I just needed something to carry in my camera bag for those times when I needed to shoot in the rain. This is great!

This simple product works as advertised. It keeps rain off the camera and flash.
Easy to use, very lightweight. Works well in snow situations and light rain. If you only need it occasionally its handy to carry with you and will do the job.
Out of the box with the standard 18-55mm kit lens, the Nikon D5300 is a nice basic DSLR, but you may eventually want to customize it, adding lenses, flashes and accessories that would help you get the kinds of photos you want to shoot to express your creativity.Read More Comments(1)
