Customer Reviews of FotoSharp's Camera Rain Covers
Some of the hundreds of comments we've received from happy customers.
You can read more reviews on various forums and ResellerRatings.com

"I’ve used these covers in rain and in wet snow and they do a good job. The Velcro opening and drawstrings on both ends are elegant in their simplicity. And the see-through material used for the “white” covers, silicon-impregnated ripstop nylon, is really tough and waterproof." (White 16", 20", 25", & 30" PRO covers)
Andrew Boyd, Times-Picayune - New Orleans, LA

"Simplicity is golden. Your rain covers eliminate the gaggle of straps, velcro, etc. that complicate other brand covers! One needs to be quick to get shots." (White 16" & 30" PRO -- for Nikon D2x)
Merrill Lowden - Douglas, AK

"My FotoSharp camera raincoats have protected my professional gear for many years, from snow, rain, soot, mud, and sand. They are still in great shape and continue to do exactly as they were designed to do. I recommend Fotosharp to everyone." ("See-Thru" White 16" & 20" PRO for Nikon D2x, D2Hs, D2H, 300mm 2.8, 80-200 2.8, 18-70mm, SB800)

"Thanks for getting those out to us and for the discount! They look and fit great. (Un)fortunately we didn't have any bad weather on our shoot so we never had to pull them out. However, they now have a permanent place in both of my camera cases and I know they will see some significant use in the future. You have an excellent product with awesome customer service. That's a winning combination that you don't often see in business these days." (White 20" PRO rain covers for Canon GL2 video camera)
James Brown - Orem, UT

"Saw your product on a list of recommended toys at Outdoor Photographer. Compared prices, etc at Adorama and B&H. Liked your price, simplicity, concept of 15 day trial." (White 16" PRO -- for Nikon D300s w/Nikkor 70-300mm)
Jeffrey Engel - Athens, GA

"This cover is simple, compact and keeps my equipment dry. I can carry it in my back pocket, and it’s ready to deploy if the rain should come. I also like to have it for early-morning shooting. I can kneel on the cover when there’s heavy dew on the ground. Great product. Recommended it to hundreds of students. " (Black 20" PRO)

"Simple, super light weight, does the job! Good velcro opening length to allow for different heads, camera configs. Excellent customer service - helpful!!" (White 20" PRO -- for Hasselblad H3DII)

"This cover is a godsend for all wedding photographers! I bought my second raincoat for my camera from you today. The first one is still great after a couple of years and has been with me all over the world. To the envy of other photographers in England I was able to take pictures even in the rain. Thank you! Anyway I wanted another for my spare camera bag and I also ordered a third one today as a gift for my associate photographer so she is well covered too. Further more I will go online and tell everybody in the photo forum to order one if they have not done so already...you guys are the greatest. Thank you!" (White 16" ORIGINAL)"

"I own several 'high end' rain products but I still find yours is my 'go to' rain cover." (Black 20" PRO & White 15" ORIGINAL)
Michael Brant - Mountain Lakes, NJ

"I was hesitant about this rain cover but ended up buying one anyway. Recently on a shoot where it rained all day, the cover absolutely kept my gear dry. It wasn't a lite drizzle either, but a constant downpour. Great product and looking to purchase a couple more." (White 16" PRO -- for Canon 1D Mark II N w/24-70 & 70-200mm lens)
Heidi Mrkulic - North Las Vegas, NV

"I am very impressed with the ease and durability of my camera raincoat. The material used allows water to roll off and away from my camera bodies & lenses. Your 15 day trial offer is unheard of in our industry!" (White 16" ORIGINAL -- for Canon 5D & 30D w/200mm f/2.0 lens)

"I would like to purchase the 16" Camera rain cover with tripod opening in Black. I will be using it with a Canon EOS Mark II, Canon 5D, or Canon 40D with Canon 100-400 MM or 35-350 MM lenses. I had your white one....loved it. Used it often and finally while on a trip to photograph Polar Bears at -30 to -55 degrees F it lasted about 5 days then it finally cracked. Still worked with duct tape. No complaints. Great product."
FotoSharp note: We asked for more info on this feedback and got the following response:
"The crack on the old one was at the front about 1.5 - 2 inches back behind the lens elastic. The push-pull motion at the extreme cold temperatures affected it and made it brittle I'm sure. It actually happened at night when we were trying to photo the northern lights and used the cover to prevent ice crystals from forming on the camera & lens. The temps were probably below -55 F."

Moments from Nature (TM)

"I do environmental still photo and audio interview portraits at Burning Man. Dust storm whiteouts are a common occurrence in the Black Rock Desert, this poses a serious problem for DSLR camera sensors. My images from 2005 needed a lot of retouching due to dust on the sensor. 2007 was my second year using the FotoSharp rain cover as a dust cover, it performed above my expectations. In 2007 we had some of the worst white out dust storms I've seen, 3 straight days of 4-6hr white outs with very high winds. Looking at my images I don't see any dust on the sensor! We purchased another cover for camera #2 this year. My only regret is that I didn't take the point and shoot rain cover Bob had sent me. Thanks again for an excellent product and excellent customer service." (White 16" PRO & 8" ORIGINAL)

"I just got back from a vacation trip to Canada. I took your rain cover and rain covers made by three other companies, yours being the least expensive. It rained most of the time I was there, and your rain cover ended up being the only one I used." (White 15" ORIGINAL)

"This is a product that is great for forest, wildlife and any still/tripod outdoor camera work." (White 16" & 20" PRO)
Laura Perrin - Switzerland
Outdoor-Interlaken

"I bought the 16 inch camera raincoat for my trip to Iguassu Falls. I am impressed how it kept my camera dry. I ended up using wide-angle lenses shooting the falls so I used the extra cover for my head. I wear glasses so keeping my face dry is a big plus. I wish there is a way to keep water droplets off the lens. I wish I had this product when I was photographing Victoria Falls. The conditions are even worse there. I highly recommend this product!" (White 16" PRO, subsequent purchase of White 30" PRO -- for Nikon D3s w/600mm f/4)
Robert Higaki - Watsonville, CA

"Just a little testimonial for your rain covers. I now have two, one white and one camo, and they are excellent. They do the job well, without fuss, are compact and easily stored. Other types seem over complicated and awkward to use, with little windows that you can’t see through properly, stiff material, and so on, whereas yours are very easy to use and seem to have been designed, and tested, with practical use in mind. Excellent product!" (White 16" PRO & 20" UNIVERSAL Camouflage -- for Canon 5D Mark II w/17-40mm, 24-105mm, 70-200mm, 300mm)
John Fryatt - Northamptonshire, UK

"1st spot of rain on Sunday was all it took [to my friends amusement] for me to try out the rain cover. Ease of use was a big plus, taking seconds to put on. On my 200-400mm Nikkor it just fits the bill length wise. I found that between rain showers if you don't want to keep it on you can easily fix it at the top of the mono pod using the draw cord instead of taking it of completely. At the end of the day a very positive first impression!" (White 20" PRO -- for Nikon D3)

"(The) camera 'raincoat' has proved it's worth. No longer nervous about the threat of water gettng my camera wet as coat protects it well. Recommend FotoSharp for fast efficient service. Also refreshing to see this type of 15 day free trial arrangement available in this day & age." (White 12" ORIGINAL -- for Panasonic FZ28)
John Bingley - Witney, Oxfordshire, UK

"A brilliant product useful for protecting all sorts of items from the rain, not just cameras, and with a 15 day free trial as well!" (White 12" ORIGINAL -- for Canon Rebel 1000D w/75-300mm)
Mike Senior - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, UK

"Just a note to say how impressed I am with the new rain cover. You provide a quality product at a reasonable price and include features which make it's use practical and simple. I will definitely recommend your product to my photo-friends." (Black 16" PRO -- for Nikon D300 w/70-300mm lens)

"I just got back from 10 days in the cloud forests of Ecuador and your camera raincoats really saved the day. We had a ton of rain. I had bought one (PRO) 25" white one for my Nikon 200-400VR lens and then a second one (PRO 16", black) to use with the Nikon 80-400VR lens. I should have bought them both in black--the white really screamed out in the rainforest. Thanks again--this is probably the most useful camera accessory I've bought in a long time!"
Janet Zinn - Brooklyn, NY
Janet Zinn Photography

"It's a remarkably simple little cover that scrunches up into a tiny ball in my camera bag when not in use, yet provides rain protection even with my big Nikkor 70-200 VR zoom on my D200." (White 16" ORIGINAL -- for Nikon D200)

"I was very impressed with the rain cover on a recent 6 week trip to the SW deserts for wildflower images. I used it mostly as a dust cover while photographing the Eureka Dunes at Death Valley NP. I would like to endorse your raincovers in my online journal with your permission." (White 15" ORIGINAL & 20" PRO)
Ed Book - Silverdale, WA

"I just had to write to say how pleased I am with my order #13629. I sent a message along with my PayPal payment, but wanted to add to it here. You gained a repeat customer with your amazing service, fast delivery, and quality products. I tried the rain cover on my D3s and 300mm f/2.8 lens today, as it began raining about two hours after I received my rain covers. Perfect timing! The big one is what I tried, and it worked great. Thanks for a quality product at an amazingly fair price!!! I learned about FotoSharp online, at a forum I am a member of, called the Nikon Cafe: www.nikoncafe.com It's a great community of photographers and I trust the members there to steer me straight. They did when they recommended your products. I'm really impressed. Also, something about the way you do business makes it seem "old school", where two people could shake hands and make a deal, knowing it would be just fine. Your 15 day trial period is generous, your prices are very reasonable, and you deliver exactly what you describe. Doesn't get any better than that, ESPECIALLY in this day of our internet, email (like this!), and electronic businesses. Thanks so much, and be assured I will recommend FotoSharp to all of my friends and family, and I will be sure to come back to you in the future!"

"There's no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong equipment/clothing!  I just spent five weeks shooting in Africa, often in the monsoon deluge.  Thank goodness for my clear FotoSharp pro cover that I always carry in my bag for shooting in the rain."

"In June had to go to my nephews’ wedding and all it did was rain, luckily I had purchased one of your rain covers for my Canon 40D. All I can say is your product far exceeded my expectations.

Raymond Laverdure - Havre, MT

"Since I'm not a pro and can't justify spending a few hundred dollars, this camera raincoat will be perfect for an upcoming trip to Alaska. It is so rare to see a true "try before you buy offer" and free shipping. The quality seems good (it's really waterproof) the price is fair, and with the 15 day trial you can't go wrong."

"Was in Yosemite and was able to try your products—worked great at the bottom of Yosemite falls when I tried to capture a moonbow last June 26th. Kept my camera/lens perfectly dry amid the nonstop wash at the bottom of the falls. Everything, my eyeglasses, my face, my backpack, my jacket, my tripod, werre drenched except my camera and lens. Great product and several photogs inquired—told them about your website." (White & Universal Camo 20" PRO covers -- for Nikon D700 w/70-200mm + TC-17E II)

"Just wanted to let you know what a great product you have. I purchase the 16 inch with tripod mount and just returned from Niagra Falls, you can't get any wetter than this place. Everything stayed dry and only the lens had to be wiped off. I know it will also work great on my ski trips in the snow. Thanks again." (White 16" PRO -- for Nikon D300)

David Ames - Fremont, NE

"Thank you for getting the camera raincoats here so quickly. It rained off and on all Saturday during a NADAC agility competition. We were able to fulfill our commitments as photographers for the event because we had your raincoats protecting our cameras. One camera sat on a tripod most of the day. The other two cameras we kept in our hands. None of the cameras got even one drop of rain on them. Thank you for a great product." (White 15" ORIGINAL -- for Canon D60 Rebel)

"I just wanted to drop you a note. I purchased your camera cover a few weeks ago and I was extremely happy with it. My wife and I had taken it to Paris for our vacation (to be used on my Canon 10D). We had anticipated some rain, so I thought that your rain cover may be of some use. Not only was it so easy to use, the cover did terrific when it rained! We took some great photos!

"The 16" Pro Camera Raincoat was a good friend to have along for the High School football season here. A big plus about the material in your rain cover is the visibility that it affords to the user to be able to see the display and controls through the material. I am very pleased with the performance and ease of use of your products." (for Panasonic DVC30 camcorder)

"Just last week I was in the Lamar Valley of Yellowstone Park photographing a grizzly when it started to rain. I did not want my Sony extendable 70-400G lens to get wet so I had to stop and go back to the car wht lens & camera under my coat. On the drive home I thought of how to make a rain cover. I checked the internet first and got a reference to your product from dpforum.com and ordered the 25" model. It is much like what I had envisioned but your sewing skills are better than mine. The 25" model is a perfect fit. It is generous but not too large. I liked the trial period because I was not sure I ordered the correct size." (Olive/Camo 25" PRO -- for Sony A55 w/70-400G lens)

"I have purchased two of your camera raincoats and they are very easy to use and work well. I really like the fact that you can use it on a tripod because of the velcro opening. I had used a different camera raincoat previously and after a few uses it was no longer waterproof." (White 16" PRO -- for Canon 5D Mark II & Olympus E-30)

"Living in the Smoky Mtns, we were tired of using plastic bags. Your rain cover is easy to use and is much more of a value than LensCoat or other products." (Olive/Woodland Camo 16" PRO -- for Nikon DD610 w/Nikon 28-300mm and Sigma 150mm macro lens)

Forum postings:

We use these covers on everything from 85mm to 800mm lenses they are cheap lightweight and very effective. Dave - dpreview.com

This product is great every photographer should have one. First let me say I never in a million years have seen a company like this. I ordered 2 of their camo rain covers. They sent them to me free for 15 days. Then if I like it I pay them. If not return simply return them. Your thinking oh I bet they take a credit card number right? No they simply took my phone number and address that’s it. 1 week later I received them in the mail. Amazing! A truly refreshing way of doing business. The rain cover is perfect and exactly what I needed. I love them sooooooo much I will order more for my friends. Djm2u - flickr.com

I like it, it works and it folds up to almost nothing. Billkt40 - dpreview.com

The Fotosharp rain cover is cheap, durable, and easy to use. I use the 16" version because it keeps rain off my long telephotos, and I can get my hand inside to adjust zoom and focus. Scrunched small, it fits at the bottom of my camera case or in a pocket ready whenever I need it. Dennis Phillips - dpreview.com

I've had an expensive Kata. It was effective, but cumbersome. It didn't work so well when I left it at home, annoyed at it's size. Unfortunately, many of the times I needed it were ones when I had no warning of rain. Then I had nothing, but to put the camera away. Now I'm using the silnylon cover from (FotoSharp). They come in several sizes, compress to fit in your palm, and are made of the same durable and waterproof material that is so popular in backpacking. It comes in black or translucent, which I prefer for the use of automatically diffused flash. Best of all, the man who makes and sells them is very professional. He sends you the product with an invoice. Once you receive it, then you mail him the payment. Now that's trust in his customers. I've used mine in hours of rain and have loved its lightweight flexibility, without any fears of leakage Spotts -dpreview.com

A cover is cheaper than sending your lens/body in for repair, or replacement. I keep one of these in my camera bag at all time, just incase the weather changes. Cheap protection for your expensive gear. Luca Foto - photo.net

I've owned Aquatech, Fotosharp and one of the others, the Fotosharps are the easiest to get on when it rains and the ones that stay with my camera bag. compuwar - macrumors.com

In the past five years I have been all over the world with my cameras, have been pretty merciless, and just finished a 1500 mile bicycle ride down the US Pacific... during Feb-April! I brought a Canon G11 and 40D. When it rained or got real misty, I used a fotosharp silnylon cover, which is always in my bag it's so compact. It works. the_open_life - dpreview.com

These hoods are waterproof, snow proof, and are very light and inexpensive. They are designed to cover the camera body as well. I use the "white" fabric covers as they are slightly transparent so you can see the lens controls through the cover. Mark Picard - naturescapes.net

After much research I ordered this one to use with the D200 + 200-400VR (25" camera rain cover). I like the fact that its clear so that you can see the camera controls, and also they claim it will accommodate the flash and that the TTL flash will work through it (albeit, I'd imagine, with some diffusion. I'm not counting on that working well, but its nice that at least the cover will fit with the flash on the camera.) Its inexpensive too. Plus, money-back guarantee (actually they don't even charge you for it in advance!). Janet Zinn - dpreview.com

...its simple quick and easy....i just ordered another for my 400 thats on the way...pretty much the exact same thing as the storm jacket without the huge logo...and 15 bucks less. Brad Barr - sportsshooter.com

For less severe weather conditions, effective covers from FotoSharp work quite well. They are a simple design ans a lot cheaper. As well they are available in camo. So you don't have to be advertising for ThinkTank, Optech or Aquatec. And they're light weight enough and pack small enough to take just as a quick cover if a shower comes over the ridge. Priced right at ~$45 for a camo cover for the 500 f4. Rodney O - fredmiranda.com

Best bit is .... you don't pay for it until you have tried it! This company are in the States and they post out their rain covers, you take a look and either pay for them or send them back. They are GOOD though. Alzibiff - talk photography.co.uk

You can put these on, adjust your camera from outside the cover, and it's light and compact. That is, if you are talking about shooting in wet weather. It's white, but clear when against a solid object and is made of silnylon. Kathryne - dpreview.com

They work very well, they're cheap, and they're translucent- you can even fire a flash through them. They're made of silicon-impregnated nylon. The company is a pleasure to deal with as well. They actually sent me my cover to check out for something like 10 days without me sending them any money, or any information other than an address. If I liked, I bought, if I didn't I'd send it back to them. I would highly recommend these covers. I've used the on my cameras in complete downpours and in a blizzard or two, and they work exactly as they should. Brian G - dpreview.com

Thanks Brian G for pointing me at these. I am sure the Storm Jacket is a fine product, but the ENORMOUS LOGO woujld make me feel foolish using one. I just want a product that works without the free advertising on the side. will baillieu - dpreview.com

As recommended by a veteran photojournalist friend, I keep a couple of FotoSharp covers in my bag 24/7. They are quite effective, durable, and reasonably priced (a LOT less expensive than those Nikon covers). Online at http://www.fotosharp.com/ (and no, I have no ties to this vendor nor do I receive a commission if you click on the link).

BTW for the people in North America (I don't know if they ship somewhere else in the world): check fotosharp http://fotosharp.com/pro_camera_rain_covers.html for their rain covers. The prices are 'cheap' compared to the other brands and it's a thousand times better than plastic bags. It folds very small, doesn't rip and I can operate it from the outside. And I recommend the Original instead of the Pro, unless you need the tripod opening.

"Light yet very effective for light rain, - never leaves home without it :-) Have been shooting motorsports for some years and big clumsy solutions doesn't work for me on the race track, this however I can put in a pocket and use when needed. And they are quite cheap actually :-) Mine is about 5 years old now and for 25 $... :-) it's a bargain.
