    Rain Slicker for Sony PXW-FS5 (Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Total Protection with Total Access I needed a waterproof cover for my Sony FS5. The pictures do not do it justice. It fits very well - a little oversize if anything. But the number of opening surprised me. There is a hook and loop opening on top that allows you to grab the top handle which is useful if you want to leave the Rain Slicker on before/after the rain. There is a zipper that gives access to microphone attachment. A hook and loop opening is available on the grip side of the camera, yet sheds the water with or without your hand on the grip and allow easy access to the grip controls. The other side has two clear plastic windows that afford a view of the control side of the camera and the LCD Screen. Hook and Loop allow you to tent the opening for the LCD screen to keep water out yet provide a clear view. Finally there is a h&l opening on the back to allow access to the battery and connectors (SCI, HDMI, etc) on the back. There is even a flap of material that allows a microphone to be open in the front yet protected from rain. This flap doesn't extend past the lens so you may have to move a shotgun mic back. The only negative I've found is the elastic opening for the view finder doesn't grip the eyepiece very well. If you have the large eyecup mounted it will hold everything in place but without the eyecup the cover will not keep the eyepiece held in place and you have to make an effort every time you want to look thru the view finder - but it does keep it dry that way. All of the opening are designed in such a way as to shed the water around the openings. I haven't tried it in blowing rain but I bet that you could adjust the opening for a tighter fit. The material is a heavy duty waterproof canvas that isn't going to tear or wear with normal usage.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cover, much better then the CamRade version I did the mistake to buy the Camrade version (because a friend loved his cover for the FS700), but I had to return it because the cover was terribly bad designed. The whole thing was made of velcros that left tiny holes around the camera, the LCD back of the LCD screen was not covered, the back was to tight to put a BP-U90 battery and there's no space at the top to put a wireless receiver. I was extremely disappointed (it's the first time I had to return a B&H order) Then i emailed Porta Brace asking if their cover would fit a BP-U90 battery and they replied to be in 10 minutes assuring it would. After playing with cover I can say that it's very well designed, my camera feels much more protected then with the camerade version. If you know how well your FS5 you shouldn't have any problems operating with the cover on. There's a lot of space if you have accessories on your camera and most importantly : The LCD screen is 100% protected. Great product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality Excellent cover build quality is second to none. It is a bit of a mission to get the cover on the camera so be aware you won't be able to quickly chuck it on your FS5 if it starts to rain all of a sudden like it does over here in Auckland. Never the less minor issue excellent product highly recommend, have one for my URSA mini 4.6k.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Alllllright This product is good. It makes the job. The fabric is a little bit stiff, but it's all right. The case is very big, it can cary a mic under it and a big lens. However, when you shoot in compact mode (small lens, no mic), it's a bit big. Used it under -40 and it was keeping my camera warm and dry.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unique Origami Puzzle A bit Difficult to figure out how it goes over the camera. One it's on difficult to hold and operate the camera. I would use it in steady rain and it looks like it would adequately protect the camera. .

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked like a CHAMP! Without instructions I was able to put it on with ease. I was working the NYC Bhangra Holi Hai Festival and it kept my camera spotless! Definitely worth every dollar.
