  1. I think maybe the sales reps may not be AS technical as an engineer and thus they tend to tell you safe things within general reason and operation.

    This was a good video; thanks for the info :)

    i had my 5dmarkiii washed under the tab after a photoshoot by the sea. No problem at all! These machines are build like tanks!

  3. My guess is that it is a liability issue, If you say in the manual that the camera is water resistant, you may be liable for some idiot drowning it in water. But if you don't say it is water resistant you wont have complaints from professionals who wasn't afraid to use the camera in poring rain when the camera survived.
    When it comes to water resistance you have to deal with quite a bit if luck, ie. If you test to leave a hundred water resistant cameras out in the rain some will break, but not all of them.

  4. 3:44 Assuming you're talking about Tamron 24-70, it is advertised as weather sealed lens.

    Kai, digitalrev!

  6. Doug, the nifty 50 does not have any weather sealing. Many of the L series lenses are weather resistant — you can find the rubber gasket where it mounts to the body. There is definitely a difference.

  7. My 550D's rubber pad for the thumb at the back of the camera peeled off… And Lo and Behold i can see the internals through the little holes that holds the rubber pads in place…. Shite!!! LOL!

  8. Digital rev tv… Nice one…

  9. No its The CANNON Live view software! 🙂

  10. Is that Xsplit on you monitor?

  11. My 60 was hit by two big waves, completely saturated. It stopped working after about 20 mins but I think this is because I didn't remove the battery straight away. If water hits the battery it will shut off as a safety precaution. Anyway, I dried the camera out for 3 days and it worked fine after and still does. I was using the Efs 10-22mm at the time which was also soaked, that works fine too! If your camera ever gets a soaking remove the battery immediately!!

  12. I love the explanation you made in this video. Makes me wonder if the manufacturers can't get together to create some sort of universal weather sealing/durability rating like we already have for other aspects of the camera.

  13. I`ve been in a light rain, snow with my T2i, even a little of spilled soda got on it (yeah, after that I had to clean sticky keys and flash opening mechanism), but it is still working great as it should be, those cameras are not such sissies 🙂

    i was pretty annoyed with my Nikon d7000!there a pretty high end model and were meant to be wether proofed pretty well I found out differently aha i was shooting an event and it begin to rain quite heavy but it wasn't a storm!aha and after shooting around half an hour,the camera being put in out of a bag,I saw that the focus point dial or the jog wheel for canon users was almost sticking so obvisiously water had entered here…I manged to fix it but I contacted Nikon about it but no reply 🙁

  15. you just setup a DSLR on a tripod with a intervalometer and lets say you want a 3 second time lapse at 30 FPS. lets also say that you want it to take place over 6 hours. So you need 90 frames over the course of 60 hours. 360 minutes divided by 90 is 4. So every 4 minutes it should take a picture until it hits 90 frames. Feel free to message me if you want to know more

  16. I saw your comment on the weather resistant video and i would have replied with this but it would not let me:

    "you just setup a DSLR on a tripod with a intervalometer and lets say you want a 3 second time lapse at 30 FPS. lets also say that you want it to take place over 6 hours. So you need 90 frames over the course of 60 hours. 360 minutes divided by 90 is 4. So every 4 minutes it should take a picture until it hits 90 frames."

    feel free to reply for more info

  17. ive taken my t3i out in the rain and it still works perfectly

  18. The lens mounts of a 50mm 1.8 and a 24-70 2.8L are not the same, I would think.. :p

  19. I've had my 550D start to over-heat before whilst filming in strong sun, sprayed it with water to cool it. Seemed to work, and camera is fine still after a couple of years.
