Think Tank Photo has today released a pair of rain covers for use with 70-200mm lenses. The Hydrophobia 70-200 and Hydrophobia Flash 70-200 are soft-sided water resistant covers for a digital SLR and 70-200mm f/2.8-size lens; the latter incorporates a cover for a mounted flash unit.

The video below, prepared by Think Tank Photo, demonstrates the integrated camera strap feature unique to the new Hydrophobia covers.

Press Release

Rain Cover for 70-200 and Smaller Lenses Released!

To help you get the shot in even the harshest conditions, we have released two water-resistant, seam-sealed rain covers for 70-200 and smaller lenses: the Hydrophobiaź 70-200 and the Hydrophobiaź Flash 70-200 with built-in flash protector. It includes a camera strap that supports the camera's and lens' weight from the outside without sacrificing the rain cover's water resistance. There is also no need to remove the strap that is already attached to the camera. A camera strap retainer loop inside the Hydrophobia stows the camera's strap underneath the rain cover. And now, without exposing your expensive DSLR and lens to the elements, you can change memory cards and batteries without taking off the rain cover. Another key feature is the wide arm sleeves located on both sides for focusing, zooming and accessing controls. Other features include:

· A clear window for viewing LCD and controls
· A fabric cover for the end of the lens.
· An eyepiece storage pocket (eyepieces sold separately)
· A detachable camera strap
· A breathable mesh bag for transportation and storage

We created a short video that highlights these features.

Note: The Hydrophobia requires that you have the proper eyepiece for your make/model of camera body.
