When I was taking photos with my Zenit 12 xp, I never worried about the rain 'coz I knew nothing serious would happen to my camera, except of rust (kidding ). But now I'm totaly afraid of my digi cam, because there is no mechanical things - only electronics. Do you have any special "clothes" for your cameras to take pics, during rain? Or how do you do it? I had a waterresistant Minolta but it was compact. I also tried with an umbrella but it is quite uncomfortable, especially when I'm alone and have noone to help me with holding it exactly above me.
