Humorously Impractical SLR Rain Cover

Most camera rain covers can be a bit cumbersome, but this Japanese rain cover concept might take the hassle to a whole new level. In fact, a freezer bag seems more practical.

While the cover is designed to be wallet-friendly, it’s probably much less kind to the user. It may be remarkably typhoon-proof, but forget long lenses, manual focus, zoom, and image sharpness, to name a few essential DSLR features lost to design flaws.

However, hailing from Japan, it’s possible that this accessory is simply a “chindogu” invention.
