    I need a cover for my 30D, and possibly to also cover whatever lens I am using at the time.

    I most frequently use my camera for shooting remote control cars at a local 'backyard' track. Its always extremely dusty, and with a good rain and the new irrigation we are installing, its going to be muddy at times too. Just today I got pelted by some huge gobs of mud, and figure its now or never.

    I need something to most importantly cover my 30D, but still allow access to settings (obviously), and possibly something to help protect the body of the lens I would be using at the time. I have been shooting lately with a 50mm prime, but also use a variety of L glass.

    Anyone have any experience with bag type covers? I am wondering if a rain cover will do the trick for me. Just mainly looking for feedback on particular products, and links to info/pricing. :x:

    TIA :wavey:

    First one is nice, but definately out of my range at this time. The other two are on the range of what I am looking for.

    I also just found Camera Armor....

    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/465465-REG/Camera_Armor_CA1103SMK_Canon_30D_Camera_Armor.html

    Anyone used/seen/heard of this?

    that camera armor looks like it covers everything that doesn't matter, but doesnt cover the things that could potentially get dirt and mud in it ie dials and buttons. ESPECIALLY the lens...muddy lenses FTMFL

    i'd get a cover as well

    I'll prolly end up getting one of the linked rain covers, but I figured for $35 this armor might be worth the money just to keep the body looking good. I'll post up when it comes in.

    extra large ziplock bag - one corner (cut off) + rubber band + gaffer tape = cover.

    total cost: about $1.50
