It looks like smart thing to have for someone like me who is a lot on hiking. Weather condition on mountains can be very changeable…

Thanks on comments!
Cheers!

Interesting, but does it protect from bad weather? I can only see mention of protection from impact. :cry: If it doesn't keep water out it might actually make things worse if water gets trapped between the armour and the camera.

Well, Bob U are right. It does not protect camera from rain, but I even don’t expect that. I am thinking more about protection from fog, strong wind, low temperatures, dust (not on sensor), and mostly starches.
I haven’t decide yet either I’ll buy it or not but I’m pretty close to purchase.

Cheers!

For rain I'd suggest this:

I don't own a Canon, but that "camera armor" is just outright ugly. On the other hand, the "storm jacket" seems to protect from what matter most: rain and dust.

If you're holding your camera and let it drop on something like cement, or something hard like that, there's no way any protection is going to keep it in one piece. Always use your neckstrap! I use mine around the wrist.

I always use my neck strap, and if its not round my neck, its twisted around my wrist twice to prevent it falling off my wrist if i some how drop it.

I don't think I'd buy the armor thing, but something like that would be pretty good.


As for the storm jacket, looks really nice! I was thinking about buying an underwater casing for my 350D around June next year before I go on holiday, so I supposed I could use that when its raining if its not obtrusive, but until then, the storm jacket thing would be nice to have.

It is nice to hear all that opinions! I’m not 100% shore either I’ll buy it or not, but camera armor looks like good thing to me. Some pro photographers say very positive things about cam armor.

Cheers!

Well just keep this in mind, If you don't endanger the camera it should be fine, I've went hiking with my DSLR and the senond best thing to do is to clean when you done! :)
