| p.1 #1 · Question: Water resistance of 1DX |
I am getting a new 1DX and, while I know it is a bit more watertight than my old camera (5dmkii), I'm wondering just how water tight. I have been caught in the rain a few times with the 5d but never a heavy downpour and never for more than a few minutes. I have always gotten it indoors and dried off as soon as possible.
In a downpour, would the sane camera owner scramble to get a 1DX out of the rain immediately or is it relatively safe to continue shooting? I ask because, while I have heard a few people discuss the use of 1D series cameras in rain, the owners manual stops well short of endorsing such use.
thanks for any info or experience you can share
