Features

Features


1 Hydrophobia 300-600 V2.0 protects the camera and allows full operational use when the rain cover is deployed.
2 The Hydrophobia 300-600 V2.0 pre-mounts to the lens hood to be quickly deployed during inclement weather. If bad weather is intermittent, the rain cover can stay in the pre-mounted position but pulled out to cover the camera when needed.
3 The rain cover can be attached while the DSLR is attached to the lens. To deploy from the pre-mounted position, loosen the red elastic cord at the bottom, then simply pull the rain cover fabric out from underneath the flap. Pull the fabric completely over the lens and the camera, attaching the neoprene eyepiece collar around the eyepiece. Finally, close the weatherproof zipper at the bottom and cinch the elastic cord tightly around the monopod.
4 A clear flap is designed to cover the Hydrophobia eyepiece while the camera is not in use. The flap prevents any droplets from falling into the viewfinder and obscuring vision when ready to shoot.
5 Hydrophobia 300-600 V2.0 now offers a larger clear window on back for increased view of the camera and LCD screen.
6 Version 2.0 also features a tethered lens hood cover to keep moisture or debris from hitting the front lens element, while the camera is not being used.
7 An elastic camera strap retainer is located on the inside of the rain cover, near the camera. Fold or roll the camera’s strap, then tuck it under the strap retainer to store neatly.
8 The elastic cords on the rain cover can now be tightened or loosened by single-handed operation.
9 The Hydrophobia eyepiece can be stored in the dedicated eyepiece pocket to prevent it from being accidentally misplaced. (Eyepiece required and sold separately).
10 The right and left hand sleeves are placed strategically to allow full control of the camera and lens functions, including manually focusing the lens. The arm sleeves are both oversized to accommodate for bulky outwear and gloves during extreme weather. (Version 1.0 pictured)
11 Properly attached, the Hydrophobia 300-600 V2.0 will still allow the DSLR to turn vertically in either direction, for right eye or left eye preference. (Version 1.0 pictured)
12 A teleconverter can be attached either by opening the rain cover or inserting the teleconverter through an arm sleeve. Hydrophobia 300-600 V2.0 has plenty of room inside for detaching the DSLR and connecting the teleconverter.
13 Change memory cards without removing the rain cover. (Version 1.0 pictured)
14 Batteries can be also be changed without removing the rain cover. (Version 1.0 pictured)
15 A 600mm lens extension sleeve is included for use with a 600 f4 or 800 f5.6 lens.
16 A mesh carrying bag is included for transportation and storage.
