I have not used this yet, but very unimpressed with the design. Velcro closure flap is way too stop and wide for practical use. I plan to cut that off completely and mount my own velcro secure to the end of my lens. The other end that covers the camera is exactly what I was hoping for.

i thought i would really like this because i could put both hands in it to control the camera. i was able to do that however the clear plastic did not fir well on the back of the camera and was very hard to see thru. i fought with the opening foe the hands. this was NOT very easy to attach to the camera. I would NOT recommend this cover. I had to return (B&H was assume) and purchase a different rain cover

This elements cove is an essential part of my seascape imagery. It has saved me from major repairs due to sea water splashing onto my camera! Been using this for the last 2 years, it was time to retire my old one & purchase a newer cover.

Best all weather cover ever!

I bought this cover when Kata had the distro license - 5 or more years ago. Now Manfrotto makes it, but I would buy this again and again for every camera I own. Yes, it is awkward at first, but I shoot in rain, snow and on sandy beaches. In all cases, putting this cover on as I head outdoors in bad weather, or to the beach, has save my camera and lenses more times than I can count. You have to get used to leaving one hand 'inside' the bag and moving the other in and out. If you like 'live view' or shoot lots by using the back screen, then it may be awkward. I shoot viewfinder unless I am at an angle, on a tripod that's oddly positioned, or at an impossible height. Of course, with most wifi cams you can focus or aim over wifi if you are on a tripod. Handheld you have to get used to looking through the thick plastic, but this is the best protection around if you plan to be out in dicey weather.

Will this standard E-702 PL cover (without the accessory extender) properly protect my 100-400L lens with my 60D body? do the rain drops on the clear plastic make shooting frustrating?
Asked by: Anonymous
This rain cover works quite well. I have not experienced any issues or frustrations with the rain drops on the clear plastic. You will not want to use this cover with a short lens as the velro that will surround it is a bit lengthy and it can be cumbersome.

Will this work with the Canon 24mm TS-E ll ?
Asked by: Anonymous
I have to be very honest. Yes, it works. But, I really prefer my plastic bag. I ended up going back to it because it is so easy to work with. So, for pennies, you can have a wonderful rain cover and I carry 2 or 3 with me at all times.

How do I mount the camera in the E-702 elements cover?
Asked by: Anonymous
Undo the long line of velcro. Place your camera into the clear plastic area lens first. Guide your lens through the tube. Their is another velcro which you will fasten around your lens. Fasten the long line of velcro to seal your camera inside. Your hands go in on each side to access the camera. It can be awkward with your camera strap as it will project out through the line of velcro. I imagine if you are set on a tripod you can remove the strap to make everything well sealed. I hope this helps.
