    I want to start taking photos in the rain and since I have a non weather sealed DSLR, I was wondering what is the best way of protecting both the camera and the lens. I tried using a jacket once and I found that it was either too hard to adjust the settings, or the jacket covered the lens. I'm also hoping to find something for less then $30 hopefully.

    Way over budget. I don't want to pay too much for just a cover. I could pay about $10 for a box of trashbags but of course those would take some manual labor lol

    I've heard about this radical new invention called an umbrella, apparently its pretty good at keeping things dry in the rain.

    lol unless you need to use two hands for any reason. It was a consideration though :)

    Option One Involves a whole new bag for no reason
    Option Two Doesn't help the camera much does it?
    Option Three has so many issues with it.
    Option 4 is a possibility

    And if you have to adjust camera settings, it becomes a bit awkward doesn't it?
