    Do you use one?

    Do you recommend the one you bought, what do you like or dislike?

    Talking about hoods for long lenses.

    Thanks.
     
  2. I use the Lightware RC100. It's cheap and it's really basic compared to the Aquatech and Think Tank. Don't hate it since it's better and has more protection than wrapping a garbage bag around the 300/2.8. Don't like it because it makes everything that much more complicated, but then rain is more to blame for that.

    Nevermind, I thought you meant rain covers.

    Thanks JZ...

    I was looking at the ThinkTank but its always best to see what else is out there.
     
  4. I've seen the ThinkTank Hydrophobia in person and love the idea of having the eyepiece pocket.
     
  5. I bought the TT Hydrophobia after two friends demo'd theirs to me. A great system. Too bad the D3 and D300 don't use the same eyepiece, but that'd be too simple I guess.

    Thanks for the input. The videos on their site look pretty good, but better to hear from actual users.
