rain covers

www.mindshiftgear.com 1 MindShift Gear UltraLight 20 £32/$35 THIS is actually a type of small, light bag that keeps your camera dry between shots, but you need to take out the camera for use. It’s essentially a lightly padded fabric cube where the top flap folds over your camera and fastens around the lens with a drawstring. This mid-sized version will wrap around a full-frame SLR with a modest zoom lens, and features an integrated waist belt that allows the cover to be worn like a holster bag. Unlike a traditional holster design, this cover can be collapsed and scrunched into its own compact pouch for ultimate portability. This means it’s just the ticket for stashing in your main camera bag, ready for a day when you want to travel light but still want…

www.hama.co.uk Hama 40 LED Slim Panel £69/$150 This device consists of two parts, joined by a flexible 30cm gooseneck. In practice, though, the gooseneck feels awkward and flimsy. In our tests, maximum output power at 1/60 sec, ISO 100, was just above average at 8.1EV, corresponding to f/2. www.manfrotto.co.uk Manfrotto Lumie Muse £100/$120 The pocket-sized Lumie Muse measures just 86 x 59 x 28mm. The lamp is based on eight LEDs, and the circular light aperture has a diameter of only 45mm. Despite this, the maximum output is actually pretty respectable at 7.7EV, f/1.8. www.limelite.uk.com Limelite Mosaic Solo On-Camera LED Light £69/$130 A chunky, heavy lamp which has the joint-highest number (with the Metz) of LEDs here, at 72, but they’re placed on a larger grid here, giving a 145 x 75mm illumination area. It’s top of the…

That camera remains in the Alpha stable – although with the Alpha 68, Sony is now looking to tempt those…

olympus ed 300mm 1:4.0 is pro £2,199/$2,499

PRIME LENS www.olympus.co.uk THE 2.0 crop factor of the Micro Four Thirds system is great for extending telephoto reach, as demonstrated by this new lens in Olympus’s Pro line of MFT optics, ideally suited to OM-D cameras. It has a modest size and weight of 93 x 227mm and 1.27kg, yet delivers an effective focal length of 600mm. To get that on a Canon or Nikon full-frame body, you’d be looking at a 4kg lens, and an outlay of nearly £10,000/$13,000. Build & handling Pro-line attractions include a dust, splash and freeze-proof construction, utilising a tough yet beautifully crafted metal outer barrel. The usual L-Fn (Lens Function) button can be customised via the host camera’s custom settings menu, and easy switching between autofocus and manual focus comes via a pushpull mechanism in the…
