Ruggard RC-P18 overview

  • 1Description

Photographers who like to shoot in the rain will appreciate the 2-pack RC-P18 Rain Cover for DSLR with Lens up to 18" from Ruggard. Each cover provides an easy to use way of protecting your DSLR and lens from water, dust, dirt and mud. The cover will accommodate a DSLR with a lens up to 18" long and 7" wide. The polyethylene cover has openings for your camera and lens that are secured with drawstrings. The cover also has enough space to accommodate your lens hood.

The cover is tripod-mountable by first placing your camera/lens combo inside and then placing the entire assembly over your tripod. The see-through design gives you complete access to your DSLR's controls and viewfinder. The pre-cut viewfinder hole lets you attach your camera's rubber eyecup from the outside of the cover. This assures optimum viewfinder clarity, even in harsh weather conditions.

    Ruggard RC-P18 reviews

    RC-P18 Rain Cover for DSLR with Lens up to 18" (Pack of 2) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 188.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too tight, not as easy to use as others. It's got an extra piece of plastic inside to help protect the lens, however, it's just too small to fit over the body + lens + put your hand inside it to shoot. (This was with a Canon 70D + battery grip + 70-200 2.8). The product highlights section states Tripod Mountable - Customizable for Camera's Eyepiece. Well ANY piece of plastic can be if you have to cut a hole in the plastic like these covers require you to do. I guess I was hoping/expecting there'd be pre-cut sections that would make it easy and neat to attach a monopod/tripod without having to cut it myself. Stick with the OP/TECH covers for a couple of bucks more if you're looking for a cheap, easy to carry plastic cover. They're bigger so your hand fits nicely inside of them, and actually do have an eyepiece cutout that allows you to put the plastic over the viewfinder and your eyepiece back on so you can easily shoot through the viewfinder without having to cut it or shoot through plastic.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from inexpensive, reasonably tough and well-designed Our use is mainly for emergency protection from a Rocky Mountain thunderstorm for our Canon 70D with a long lens like the EF 100-400mm and we still want to take some shots. Each cover has a pre-cut circular hole for the viewfinder eyepiece which you may want to doctor a bit before using with your dSLR. Practice in comfort before actually needing the cover in an emergency, esp. if you want the camera's eyecup removed and put over the cover and eyepiece. One cover will now be part of our gear for trips into the high country.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, inexpensive protection The purpose of this gadget is to protect a camera that is being used during a rain, mist or snow. This is little more than a plastic bag. Yet, the more than is several things that add greatly - a draw string to pull it tight around the front of lens or better, on the lens shade. Another important thing is that it is long with a diameter suited to a DSLR. It is convenient to reach the camera and still keep everything covered. There is also a hole for the viewfinder, so a good, clear view. If you work in the rain often, this might not be ideal, but it is adequate for the occasional user.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good price and works well I bought these for my wife to use with her DLSR and 500mm zoom, for use while on vacation in central America. They work well, and since she shoots using the viewfinder and not the back panel, sliding the eye shield off and fitting the plastic over the viewport and putting the eye shield back on worked well and easily. My only true concern is if doing this repeatedly will eventually result in a loose eye shield. The one thing we did not try was putting your head completely inside the cover and shoot in that manner. Otherwise, inexpensive and it does the trick in protecting the camera and lens in rainy conditions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Downpour, no Problem! Took this during a high school football game I was covering for the local paper, and the rain came down in sheets. It wasn't a problem with this rain cover, just take a look. Photo was shot with the Nikon D7000 using the 70-200 f2.8 VRII. Love this!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised It works great. It's not a super heavy plastic but it doesn't need to be. The first time I used it was in an absolute down pour during a thunder storm. I was trying to get a lightening shot and the storm hit hard and fast. The draw string around the lens didn't slip or fail in anyway. After the the storm passed, I didn't get a lightening shot, but my camera and lens were completely protected. I would recommend putting on your UV filter just to give your glass some coverage. You can reach in the one end if you want to change some settings, but I had no issue viewing the images I took or changing settings through the plastic.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the price I used this hand-held on a D7200 with an 80-200 f/2.8. Pros: -cheap, I use them as disposable -waterproof -viewfinder hole Cons: -viewfinder hole needed to be stretched a little to widen and fit under the rubber viewfinder eyepiece and it was tough to get it just right. - if you're using this on the go, the drawstring will not keep it in place on a lens. Next time I'll bring a rubber band. A quick reminder: you'll not be able to use this with a neck strap, so pack a hand strap if you're not using a monopod/tripod.
    Date published: 2015-11-03
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great covers but a little unwieldy These do a great job protecting your camera from water but can be annoying if you're using a shorter lens since there is so much extra bag hanging off.
