I am shooting in very dusty conditions; does anyone have any cheap but effective suggestions for blimps?


Thanks!

a BIG ziplock and lots of gaff-tape-

...and a small savings account for the repair bill. I shot a small project in the sand dunes outside Albuquerque once, with just howling winds the whole time, and despite multiple plastic wraps and gobs of tape, the camera still had to go in for an overhaul.
