    Where can I get some kind of splash protection for my D90? Going to hike up some waterfalls up in Yosemite in a few months, don't want to get my shit wet. Recommendations?

    Op-Tech Rain-Sleeve or Rain-Sleeve Flash. ~$7 for a two pack.

    Probably going to get this. Are these one time use, or reusable?

    I'm pretty sure you can reuse them, but don't expect them to last very long.

    Technically they could be reusable, but think about it this way--they're ~$3 each, protecting $1000+, it's better to be safe than sorry (and that cheap!) :rofl:

    You could reuse them, but the problem is the way the eyepiece is used. You take off the eyepiece cup and stretch the plastic over the VF opening, then you put the eyepiece cup back on and you've got a nice water tight seal, but you don't have to look through plastic. The second time you use them you don't have as good a seal, and you would have to fold up a dirty, wet cover and stick it back in your bag.

    They'll stand up to a full day of shooting though, they're plenty durable.

    Great info thanks, we'll probably be hiking to waterfalls 2/4 days we'll be there. Thanks for the advice guys.
