Petrol offers transparent camcorder rain covers

Petrol has introduced two new versions of its Transparent Raincover for camcorders. The PCR-15 provides weather protection for medium-size video cameras like the Sony PMW-EX3 and JVC GY-HD200, while the extra-large PRC-25 is designed to shelter full-size broadcast cameras like the Sony PDW-700 and Panasonic AJ-HPX2700.

Petrol’s one-piece design makes the rain cover easy to install during production. Constructed mainly of transparent polyurethane for maximum visibility, both models offer access to camera controls. Putting on the cover’s viewfinder protector takes seconds due to a waterproof zipper.

On the new PRC-15, this zipper also provides hand access to the camera’s LCD screen. The larger PRC-25 is roomy enough to enable work with the flip-out LCD screen fully open. A rigid front hood section comes outfitted with a hotshoe connector that anchors and stabilizes the rain cover on camera. On top of the hood, a 6in ABS track allows for the addition of an on-camera light and/or wireless receiver.
