The Polaroid Weather Shield for Digital SLR Cameras will protect most of today's DSLR cameras with hot-shoe flash units and telephoto lenses from inclement weather. It features remarkably clear plastic making it extremely easy to monitor a camera's rear LCD screen. Zippered access allows it to be slipped over a tripod-mount camera and still provide maximum protection from rain or snow. Close the zipper and use the weather shield without a tripod. Insert your arms through water repellent sleeves provided with lockable drawstrings, which further prevent water from finding its way to your camera.
