How Water Resistant Is EOS20D?

Mon Dec 19, 2005 2:18 am

As winter is now with us, I've been thinking of trying to get some rain/snow shots. I've seen quite a few on different sites and was wondering if I need to take any extra precautions with my camera, I use the 20D with a 100-400 L USM lens.

I've had my 5D out in snow and rain. It handled snow quite well, with a good drying afterwards. In rain, I put it in a 2 gallon ziplock baggie, with the lens through a hole with a rubber band around the outside. A little awakward when shooting, but didn't get a drop on it.

I had my D60 with 100-400mm L out in the rain for about half the day and wiping off water off the top of the camera as best as I could but still ended up soaking in the end. So far it survived the entire day shot at KIX and still kicking and alive today so I presume 20D will be equal or tougher than the D60. Although I would still try to cover part of the camera with cloth or plastic if you are spotting on the heavy rain.
