dusty enviroment advice
Camera: z950 Photo Location: Pittsfield NH Shutter Speed: 1/500s Aperture: F4.5 
Posted By: sunrepairer, 05-16-2012, 05:13 PM

Pictures were taken with a z950 ps camera,I would like to use the Kr but am hesitant because of the enviroment.
Does anyone have anty suggestions on ways I could use a Kr in an enviroment where a lot of dust is present.
The z950 takes good pictures but doesnot have continuous shoot, that would be real handy when shooting at these events.
I can only get 1 picture about every 10 seconds, so its usally 1 shot of each run.

These are incredibly creative! The second one could be in a Stephen King movie, like Christine on steroids. Terrific job and thanks for something so refreshingly different.

terrific shots

Cheap option (though it looks awkward to use at best) - i doubt i'd trust these for actual submersion myself, certainly not beyond 5 feet or so, but for mud and dust they should be very effective and waterproof enough to rinse off the lens area with a bottle of water

Amazon.com: Opteka UC-SLR Underwater Case/Housing for Pentax K-5, K-R, K-X, K-7, K-2000 & K20D Digital SLR Cameras: Camera & Photo

I would suggest a proper dive housing but they only make them for the K5/K7

A Cheap and Simple Way to Weatherproof Your DSLR

If that method is good enough for a Reuters photographer... its a bloody good idea for normal folk like us

Gaffers tape is a good way to seal areas too. comes off without leaving residue (just make sure it's gaffers tape and not duct tape)
I use it when i am using a non sealed sigma 24-70 to shoot events where i know i will be caught in the rain. just wrap a strip around the base of the lens and seal to the body/ the saran wrap method is good for extremes (and cheap).
I've used gaffers tape a(combined with saran sometimes ) since way back in the early 70's when i would be shooting football from the sidelines when our offensive line had the field, then I'd drop the camera beside the bench and go out when defense was up. Rain, mud no problem
