I want to go out in the rain for some shots. Is the D50 waterproof?
no it is not. Put a cover of some kind over it and go out and enjoy though
What David said. Check out this link: http://abetterphotoguide.bizhosting.com/camera_rain_covers.html
No camera is really "waterproof" other than ones designed for it or get a housing.
Even the truely "Weatherproof" D2/D200s are not going it make it in heavy rain fall.
no, it is not even weather sealed..
No its not!
I wanna take pictures in the rain too but I wouldn't dare take my camera out.
I am interested in this also. Are there any other products besides the one listed above.
Plastic garbarage bags with a hole for the lens work well!!!
No it not as you have heard but you can get a rain cover from ebay kinda cheap
I've done that in a pinch. Doesn't look fancy but works.
Large zip lock bags (you can even Gaffer Tape two together for a zoom), worked well before I got a "rain coat" for my camea.
Has anyone ever tried this with the D50?
That's a cool looking product. Have you used one?
That looks interesting. I might be interested if they're reliable.
I have one of those rain covers , not that easy to work with when you want to check the back of the camera in pouring rain . I also tried a cheap plastic poncho with velcro on the lens hood and it gives good 'breathability" to prevent condensation like you get with a garbage bag . I also made this contraption for when I want to be covered as well and have full access to the camera . It's a stacking-chair cover with the closed end cut off , it fits around your waist and gives full access to the camera .
Not weather sealed, but I've mine out in heavy rain and snow. It has been completely soaked and I haven't had any problems. I'm probably just lucky though, I don't do it often.
A very cheap plastic raincoat with elastic sleeves (to wrap around the lens). You cut the sleeves then you insert the camera in. This gives you 2 low cost cameras and lens rain protection.
