    It's not all glamour you know :D

    Rich from Sportsbeat next to me, in the hammering rain with the play at the other end of the park. Heck you cant even get the laptop out when it rains like this! Still, after match pies are always a treat!

    Ouch!! .. the things we do for money:eek: All in a days work .. eh?:rolleyes:

    Nice one ,it isn't all glamour then:nono:

    Just out of interest Pete. I can see the "raincoat" on the Lens , Camera body and photographer
    Does the inclement weather not cause condensation ( or other damage) within the camera body and affect images?. As I understand it they are not water (or dust) proof
