Think Tank Photo 740623 Overview

The black Hydrophobia Rain Cover 70-200 from Think Tank is a sophisticated cover that protects your pro DSLR from moisture, wind, dust and dirt and permits you to shoot under adverse conditions. It's over-sized and accommodates up to a 70-200mm f/2.8 or shorter lens. Its over-sized design permits horizontal or vertical use and can be accessed by its left or right sleeves. Moreover, it can be easily used when your DSLR is tripod or monopod mounted.

The beauty of this item is that it can be attached while the camera is assembled and, in addition, permits you to change batteries or memory cards without having to remove the cover. There's also a lens hood cover that protects the front of the lens. The clear back window of the Hydrophobia allows full access to the camera's LCD screen.

The unit contains a Think Tank Camera Strap V2.0 that is already connected to the cover via strong metal D-rings. It should be noted that you do not have to remove your camera's strap in order to use the Hydrophobia. Nor do you have to tweak the cover by trimming it. The Hydrophobia comes with a convenient built-in elastic strap retainer that is designed for your DSLR's strap.

The Hydrophobia connects to your lens hood by its hook and loop strap, manufactured to be non-slip. Optional Hydrophobia camera eyepieces are required to provide you with a clear view of your viewfinder through the cover. This rain cover comes with a cleverly designed built-in eyepiece pocket that is used to store the Hydrophobia eyepiece while the cover is packed away. Or, use it to hold your camera's eyecup while using the Hydrophobia's eyepiece.

For additional protection from the elements, an eyepiece flap is provided to shield the eyepiece from rain, sand or other potentially interfering contaminants. A lens hood is also provided and can be stored in its own supplied pocket located on top of the cover or it can be completely removed. The Hydrophobia comes with its own mesh carrying bag and is backed by a lifetime warranty against manufacturer's defects.

The Hydrophobia 70-200 includes a Think Tank Camera Strap that is pre-connected to durable metal D-rings on the rain cover. Proper use of the strap and rain cover does not require removing the strap attached to the camera. Nor does it require cutting holes in the rain cover or disassembling the camera's attached strap
The lens strap inside the Hydrophobia allows the external Camera Strap to fully support the weight of the camera and lens. Tighten the lens strap then clip it around the back end of the lens, ensuring a snug fit
There is no need to remove the strap already attached to the DSLR. Simply fold the strap and slip it into the Camera Strap Retainer, which is the elastic loop inside the Hydrophobia
The Hydrophobia securely attaches around the lens hood by a hook-and-loop strap with non-slip coating. Using a lens hood in the rain effectively prevents stray droplets from streaking across the front of the lens, in a similar way it blocks glare from sunlight
A specially designed eyepiece is required for use and proper attachment of the Hydrophobia rain cover. The eyepiece allows a clear view, straight through to the camera's viewfinder. There are five different eyepieces to choose from, three for Canon and two for Nikon DSLRs
An eyepiece flap can be folded over the Hydrophobia eyepiece when the camera is not is use. This keeps excess rain or dust from collecting on the viewfinder while the camera is just hanging by the external strap
An eyepiece pocket is built into the side of the Hydrophobia rain cover. It can be used to store the Hydrophobia eyepiece when the rain cover is packed away or it can carry the DSLR's rubber eyecup while the rain cover is actively being used. Look for the eye-shaped icon on the Hydrophobia
A soft lens hood cover is included for additional protection from the elements. Use it as a lens cap; it's too small to be a shower cap. The hood cover can be stored in the pocket on top of the lens or it can be completely removed to save some bulk
The clear window on the back of the Hydrophobia keeps the camera's LCD screen and controls visible. There is also enough room inside the rain cover to change memory cards and batteries without exposing the camera to rain
Using a shorter focal length lens in the Hydrophobia may be possible depending on the placement of the zoom or focusing rings on the lens

question

If water were to pool in the view finder, would it leak into the cover or camera? Or is the view finder stationary and well sealed?
Asked by: Anonymous
If I understand your meaning of the viewfinder that you mean the eyepiece; the answer is yes and no. The Think Tank eyepiece for the D800(EP-NSI) is basically an extension tube that screws into the penta prism after removing the factory eyepiece glass. You then take the factory eyepiece and screw it into the Think Tank extension eyepiece creating the sealed eyepiece/extension. So by adding the factory eyepiece on, it does create a sealed viewfinder. I actually like my newly extended eyepiece since it gives my face some distance from the back of the camera. Hope this helps.

question

Maybe I am missing something obvious but with a 70-200 how do you handle the zoom. It doesn't appear there is a way to get your hand in to zoom the lens. If I am trying to do with the cover on the lens it would seem the cover would get twisted. Is there something I am missing?

question

Nikon eyepieces have been out of stock for months. Are there any plans to address this, or should Nikon shooters look elsewhere for Rain protection?
Asked by: Ric Z.
I believe we have the Think Tank Photo EP-N Hydrophobia Eyepiece for Select Nikon / Pentax DSLR Cameras in stock at this time. Here is the link to the model eyepiece. Link: http://bhpho.to/1wr4PiJ

question

Is there enough extra length to fit a 70-200 and a TC-20E III under this hood? Or is the length maxed out with the 70-200mm?
Asked by: Jordan P.
Jordan, Great question. Use the Hydrophobia 70-200 V2.0 if you are using a 70-200 with a 2x teleconverter. You will have to attach the end of the rain cover a little bit further back on your lens hood but there's no issue with that. If you moved up to the Hydrophobia 300-600 V2.0 you would be dealing with a ton of excess material that would be tricky to maneuver around. I say this from experience. I work for Lindblad Expeditions / National Geographic in British Columbia and Southeast Alaska for about ten weeks each summer on board ships and small boats. I shoot photos every day and it rains constantly. This is what I use. I have not found one that works better.

question

This product came up in my search for camera rain gear for nikon, but the specs for the rain cover don't state that it will work with my Nikon D 800. The eyepieces don't specify Nikon either. So will these products work with my Nikon D 800? --- Thanks!
Asked by: Marith H.
Yes, it will work with a Nikon, you will need the special $35.00 eyepiece

question

Will this rain cover work with the Nikkkor 14-24 mm lens?
Asked by: Marith H.
I find it difficult to use on my Nikon 18-105 - too much material that I have to bunch up against the camera body. It would be much worse with the 14-24 - suggest you look for something else.

question

Will this cover work with the Tamron 150-600mm? Or should I go with the larger version from Think Tank?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Think Tank 300-600mm Hydrophobia Rain Cover will definitely be a better fit: http://bhpho.to/1pFALDe
