Hello people of Videomaker:
I recently bought a Sony Handycam DCR SR47 for the primary purpose of using
it to stormchase lightning. Since is so small I can always carry it in my
pocket or a small bag and quickly capture the unpredictable lightning, but the
only problem is that the camcorder will get wet by the rain. I was looking over
the underwater casing for the camcorder but it’s ridiculously expensive and I
will not buy this just to protect it from rain. I have try using plastic bag in
other camcorders but because of the wind and the rain sometimes the bag cover
the lens and if I move it away I could lose a lightning striking at that
precise second. In video footage of lightning every second, better said, frame is vitally important.
Does anyone have any suggestion to make a homemade casing to protect the
camcorder from the rain? I will try a few things but any recommendation will be
Thanks in advance
