    My husband races dirt bikes and I was wanting to take some pictures of him. The only problem is that it is really dusty at the races. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a nifty at-home camera protector (like would a gallon ziplock bag work?).

    Any ideas?

    A big ziplock back would certainly work. It is wise to protect the camera from dust. You don't want your lens sounding like a pepper grinder when you focus :)

    Do you think it will blur the picture?

    Yeah if you don't cut a hole and tape it :D

    Actually you don't really need to tape it. Cut the hole smaller than the lens and stretch it over. You can keep the back open and operate the camera inside of the bag.
