I went to Keslow today and measured out a RED with an Optimo and MB-14 in preparation for making my rain-cover. And I'm currently testing fabrics.
Just wanted to get some thoughts on the features I had in mind. Looking at other various rain-covers for Varicams and Arricams, I thought I might be able to improve on the degree of waterproofness and the ability to adapt it to many configurations (like RED). Along with a few other improvements. Here's some of the features I had in mind.
-Modular for different lenses. Could be used with a standard speed + LMB5 as well as an Optimo 12:1 + MB14
-Access point for EVF and multiple access points for LCD
-Access points for needed areas, batteries, CF cards, etc, (normal stuff)
-Rated for temps ranging from -40F - 150F
-Makes Camera Body resistant to light small arms fire (overboard?)
Also making camera covers for temporary cover for camera. (while B camera is not in use, or while eating lunch. Will protect from dust and rain better than any other cover. Also UV Protected.
RED Camera Cart cover - Why buy bag-its again and again? Same specs at camera cover, but it could have access points.
