If Martians were landing the Mothership in a driving rain, then yes. Other than that, no way...
No, with every SLR camera body from every manufacturer it's a gamble. That includes the 1D's, the Nikon D-whatevers, the Olympus bodies, pro lenses of every model and manufacturer, all of it.Marsu42 said:The only really sealed camera bodies are the 1d series, with everything else it's a gamble.
As well as the ones you've mentioned, doesn't the 100L macro require a front filter to complete the sealing? And 24-105, 24-70, 24L 1.4?neuroanatomist said:Only a few lenses actually have that requirement - the 16-35, 17-40, and 50L (although using a front filter on all sealed lenses that take them is recommended by Chuck Westfall).
Sounds strange since the 6d is built 60d-like but afaik with sealing at the lens mount and less potential critical points (few buttons, no swivel screen or pop-up flash, for the latter canon explicitly mentions that it'd result in better sealing (next to making gps/wifi possible)). Unless of course Canon has consciously worsened sealing for the 6d which might very well be possible if looking at the tech specs made to protect the 5d3 :-odtaylor said:But in practice reports have been very good for the 7D, good for the 60D, but bad for the 5D2 and now possibly the 6D.

and then a big diffuser to seal off the flash. Or how about a little umbrella with a hot shoe attachment. This would seal off the hot shoe and shelter the camera too......
I hope it works for you....oscaroo said:Camera still in rice bowl. Haven't moved it. I'll give it one more day.
That army video with the dust and water is not really a "real life example". He should keep the camera under the tap for an hour or two while doing the above button/knob/zooming/focussing actions.
I didn't think of the hotshoe. *shrug.
Turns out my creditcard provider gives worldwide insurance on all items purchased on it, for 90 days with a $100 deductible/excess. Yay! That's my plan B should the rice bowl not work. The T+C explicitly mentions accidental damage.
At least you freely admit it but I'm also missing a "subscribe/unsubscribe" feature here.Ryan708 said:im mostly posting so this shows up in my replys. But do keep us informed!
Good to hear, I hope you won't do as Homer Simpsons does ("It did worked last time, why wouldn't it work next time?")...oscaroo said:So .... The 6d works ... Fine!
