shooting in the rain

 

 

 

 

 

I bought this small brolly with clamp many years ago, when I was more into shooting timelapse but never used it much… I put it in one of my bags for this trip and was glad to have it this morning, as the stormy light was beautiful but the drizzle turned to rain… I got wet but my XPAN didnt…

FWIW: Velbon Umbrella and Clamp UC6

Main advantage is that you can put the brolly in the clamp while composing, focusing and then put on filters (all of which requires two hands) and then when ready to shoot long exposure, take the brolly out of its holder and hand hold it, so any wind buffets on the brolly don’t get transmitted to the tripod & camera… I didn’t have it with me when in Taupo last time, and found it frustrating trying to juggle a normal brolly while also carefully trying to frame the shot, wrangle filters etc…
