Without a shadow of a doubt I’m sure you have all heard of Wildlife watching supplies. Kevin Keatley has enabled us to get that little bit closer to our subjects and I am very pleased to say that I am now sponsored by Wildlife watching supplies. I must thank Kevin for taking the time to send me a few bits and bobs, all of which are bound to help me get some good pictures. One of the items a camera and lens cover is extremely useful and has allowed me to get closer to warier subjects like owl and foxes. Below is a short review and summary of a brilliant product.
Firstly I now have two of the covers, one for the 150-400mm F4-5.6 and one for the 400mm F 2.8. Both are very durable pieces of kit that can handle a bit of rough and tumble. They both also have a camouflaged fabric cover and a waterproof linings. To test the covers I left one of them out in the rain for 20 minutes or so and the cover was completely soaked but the camera lay hidden beneath, warm and dry. Also the covers are very easy to put onto the camera and lens and take lens than a minute to put on which is great if the weather takes a sudden turn for the worst, and also the cover is not to tight and has plenty of room to pull the cover right over the back of the camera, this also comes in handy when you are trying to review images on the back of the camera(in harsh sunlight as well as heavy rain).
Another point to make is that the cover does rustle when you are moving around which is also an added bonus when you are stalking wary subjects in the field and there is a drawstring at the base end near the camera which saves you fumbling around trying to keep the cover off the camera.
The advantage timber camo cover really does work well and works best along field edges and deep wood land. The cover can be used in conjunction with the WWS throw over hide as it covers the lens really well and lets you cover yourself more with the hide material.
I hope you enjoyed reading this review and I would defiantly recommend one !
