Is it OK to use a camera in the rain?
High-end DSLR cameras are built to withstand harsh conditions but few of them are completely waterproof. They have no problem with light rain but too much water can damage both the camera body and lens.
How do you protect a non weather sealed camera?
Cameras, lenses and flashes without weather-sealing should use a cover or another form of protection even in light rain and snow. Without protection, even small amounts of moisture can find their way into the camera, causing damage.
Can you weather seal a camera?
Some cameras and lenses come with weather sealing built -in, which is an added protection from a minor amount of water splashing or raining on the camera.
How do you dry out a DSLR camera?
Use a paper towel or absorbent cloth to dry the exterior of the camera and hold it in front of a fan or the air conditioning vent of your car for at least 15 minutes. Air-conditioned air is the best because it’s dehydrated or you can use a hair dryer or hand dryer in a restroom.
