Think Tank Photo Hydrophobia 70-200 Flash Rain Cover
The Hydrophobia 70-200 includes a Think Tank Camera Strap that is preconnected 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 Hydrophobia Flash 70-200 features a clear Flash Tower built-in to accommodate most sizes of hot-shoe mounted strobes. The Flash Tower has enough room to turn the flash head in any direction for bounce flash. It also fits most compact light modifiers attached to the flash head.
flash tower folds into a pocket on top of the rain cover, when a flash
is not being used. A hook-and-loop patch helps keep the flash tower
stowed and out of the way. This feature makes the Hydrophobia Flash
70-200 a versatile choice for photographers who only use a flash on
|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
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.
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
the similar way it blocks glare from sunlight.
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, while keeping a water
resistant seal. There are four different eyepieces to choose from, two
for Canon and two for Nikon DSLRs.
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
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
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.
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
a shorter focal length lens in the Hydrophobia may be possible
depending on the placement of the zoom or focusing rings on the lens.

"I used this flash cover with the new version of the raincover for a wilderness photography shoot during which it rained 4 out of 6 days. Think Tanks products get everything I have bone dry - I highly recommend it!"Author: David
