Petrol offers rain cover for the Red One camera
Petrol has introduced the PRC-RED-1 rain cover, designed to provide environmental protection for the Red One camera.
Comprised extensively of clear polyurethane for maximum visibility, the new transparent rain cover offers quick and easy access to all camera features. The cover is roomy enough to enable working with the camera’s RED LCD monitor onboard.
The one-piece design makes the PRC-RED-1 easy to install while shooting. Its viewfinder protector takes seconds to attach due to a waterproof zipper. The rigid front hood comes outfitted with a hotshoe connector that anchors and stabilizes the rain cover on the camera.
The rain cover’s front section, constructed of waterproof polypropylene board, covers and protects the lens and mattebox system. Plus, atop the hood, a 6in ABS track allows for the addition of an on-camera light or wireless receiver.
