Why You Can’t Trust Weather Sealing w/ Chris Gampat of The Phoblographer
This week on the Lensrentals podcast, we touch on a topic that Roger has discussed for a number of years here on the blog – Why You Can’t Trust Weather Sealing. And to help bring the point home, we’re joined with The Phoblographer’s own, Chris Gampat.
Sit down and enjoy as Roger and Chris go through all the intricacies of the topic, from why they think the phrase ‘weather sealing’ is fundamentally misleading, to why all water isn’t created equal, what tricks you can use to keep your gear protected, and techniques to implement if your gear does get damaged by water or other weather.
Being the largest rental house in the United States, we’ve also likely seen more damaged gear from weather than anyone else in the world, and as a result, we’ve learned just about everything there is to know when it comes to weather sealing, and how to save your gear from the environment.
And as a special guest for this episode is Chris Gampat – Editor-in-Chief at The Phoblographer. The Phoblographer is an excellent resource for photographers everywhere, from gear reviews to DIY hacks, and everything in between.
