Hello,

I'm a cinematography student and have an opportunity to shoot a movie in India this summer (august period of rain). We would be shooting there with a Canon 5dMII or 7d. I wonder if anyone has an experience using 5d or 7d with this weather conditions and could share it?
What about the lenses you were using?
How crazy is to plan a shooting for this period in Dehli?

Thanks for youre help.

The 7D is supposed to have marginally better weather sealing than the 5D.
I haven't really shot much in the rain with my 7D but I have shot in very dusty conditions without problem.

Surely though the easiest way to deal with the rain would be to get some kind of rain cover for the camera? :blink:

Did you ever shoot maybe in very high humidity conditions?
I am wondering how to protect my equipment against it.

Thanks for youre answers.
