Think Tank Photo 740626 overview

  • 1Description

The black Hydrophobia Rain Cover 300-600 V2.0 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 lenses from 300mm f/2.8 up to a 600mm f/4 with an optional Hydrophobia eyepiece attached. A 600mm lens extension sleeve is included for use with a 600mm f/4 or 800mm f/5.6 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.

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 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.

Proper use of the 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 elastic cords on the rain cover can now be tightened or loosened by single-handed operation
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 optional 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
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

Can be attached while camera and lens are assembled

    Think Tank Photo 740626 reviews

    Hydrophobia Rain Cover 300-600 V2.0 (Black) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from bad experience This worked okay for the Canon 400 2.8. The clear plastic you look through to see your images doesn't stay clear but comes opaque over time (at least it did for my two hydrophobia sizes). Also, this does not for the Canon 200-400 well. I was very disappointed and finally decided my $+ for two of these was a waste and finally bought another brand.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, well thought out but. Too big for a 400mm. There is just too much fabric. Used this on a Fjords tour in Alaska on a canon 100-400mm and a 5DMarkIII. It was just too big. I had purchased this for my husband and his 7D with 400mm prime, still too big. They say the eyepiece for the 7D won't work with a 5D, but it does so don't know what that is about. My husband ended up using the canon rain cover and it was perfect. I think this is phenomenal for use with super telephotos such as 500 or 600 mm primes that have large diameter lenses. Otherwise, it's just too big. Great packing case, great hood cover, well though out holes, well made. We encountered lots of rain but the gear stayed dry.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don't let a little weather stop ya. I use this product for action sports and wildlife photography. It keeps my equipment dry so that I can get shots I need.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great in Extreme Weather I've used the Think Tank Hydrophobia rain cover 300-600 in extreme snow/rain/wind conditions in Colorado (shooting sports action). It works as advertised keeping my equipment and hands dry. Its easy to install and fits my 1DX & 400mm 2.8 correctly. It can be adjusted to fit firmly and it does not move/shift after insulation. I used it in both horizontal and vertical positions - moving the camera inside the cover. My only negative comment is it's a little snug inside when adjusting the camera to the vertical position. I would thoroughly remind this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I use this to shoot high school and college sports. What I like best about this rain cover is it's easy and quick to put on my camera when needed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible piece of gear Think Tank never ceases to amaze me. It's consistently the most well though-out stuff and this rain cover is no exception. The material is excellent quality. It has just the right amount of adjustability. Fit my 400 2.8 right out of box, but has the extension piece to make it longer for a 600 f4 and the second loop for the velcro fastener on the hood that makes it tighter for a 300 2.8. And the pouch for the cap...and the pouch for the eyepiece...and the ability to roll it up without removing it from the hood all make this thing amazing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best! It's really a rather simply decision to make. If you want the best weather protection bag, buy this one. Like all Think Tank products, it is well designed and made. The plastic back cover is NOT cheap plastic that will crinkle, crack and gets creases in it. It is soft and supple. I actually look forward to shooting in the rain so I can get my moneys worth. True.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart investment for expensive gear Spent 5 hours on a cold and rainy Saturday afternoon shooting college lacrosse and my equipment was dry as a bone. Then 3 days later shot during monsoon type rains and wind and again dry as a bone. Its a wonderful product that I was reluctant to buy because of the expense but now am very happy and wont hesitate to shoot in heavy rain.
