Speaking of shooting in the snow, sleet and rain, Penn Camera is now a dealer for the AquaTech Sports Shields. Sports Shields are designed to protect professional cameras and large lenses from adverse weather conditions such as wind, rain and salt air. Also great for protecting sand in windy situations at the beach or in the desert. They can accommodate most professional SLR film and digital cameras. These are the Cadillac's of weather protection for your expensive gear...
