Willem is always my favorite subject when I want to try out some gear. These were shot with a Canon FD 200mm f4 S.S.C adapted to a Sony NEX-6. It takes effort to get sharp photo's with a subject as dynamic as my 1 yr old cat  ;D
My aunt's cat, Olive, is 7 months old and hyperactive doesn't even come close to describing her... look at her trying to paw my camera.

Cool!!! Big eyes, claws ready ;)

Being a cat lover, I have seen this before, never ends well..   ;D love that shot.  Thanks for sharing

I´ve been on a 10 day trip to Iceland, where a significant part of the time was spent with a fly rod in hand. This is not a technically perfect photograph, but I still like it a lot.

It shows my good friend Henrik. He has been flyfishing for +40 years. He had never before caught a +2kg trout on a dry fly, until this night. At that moment in time, he was the happiest man on the planet :)

24-70 f2.8L II, @57mm, 1/50s, f4.5, ISO2500. Shot at 1am.

This is not a technically perfect photograph, but to your good friend Henrik, its the best photograph ever!.. Great shot!

I feel you pain.  I'm vacationing in the northern regions of the Fijian islands with spectactularly clear nights.  My subject of choice the Milky Way is so clear and bright you can reach out and touch it. 

Day 1- computer died (hard drive failure)

Pretty disappointed but that can be fixed when I return to the statees.

Day 4 - My 5D III gets knocked over.  Good news is my 24-70 is unharmed.  Bad news is the camera is toast. 

My Fijian friends and family (Matevuvale) have a saying... Senga na lenga - translation is no worries

Have you checked out the Lowepro Dryzone 200?  Not sure if thats what you are looking.  I purchased this bag years ago for Island hopping trips in the South Pacific.  I was expecting to spend a lot of time on boats, canoes, rain, rain, high humidity and rain.  I am able to fit quite a bit of camera equipment in the bag with ease.  I humbly have had the opportunity to visited many deserted islands where the only access was a nice long swim.  While I was a little nervous jumping into the ocean with all my gear, along with the sharks and snakes, it worked perfectly. The bag floats high in the water and not a drop of water penetrated the bag. I probably logged a few miles swimming in the open ocean.

It isn't the most comfortable but it has never failed me in the most extreme conditions.

Just a thoought and good luck in your search.
