Petrol Announces New Raincover for Sony PMW-EX1 and HVR-Z7
Posted Sep 18, 2008

Petrol, a Vitec Group brand, introduces the PRC-EX1 transparent Raincover, the ultimate weather protection for Sony PMW-EX1 and HVR-Z7 cameras.

Petrol's ingenious one-piece design makes the Raincover extremely easy to install, even while shooting. Constructed largely of clear polyurethane (PTU) for maximum visibility, the PRC-EX1 offers quick and easy access to all camera features and even enables work with the flip out LCD screen fully open. A hot shoe connector in the cover's rigid front hood section anchors and stabilizes it on camera. At the rear, durable waterproof rubber fabric surrounds and protects the viewfinder.

The PRC-EX1 Raincover is the latest Petrol accessory for popular cameras like the Sony EX1. Other compatible products include the Dr. Petrol Bag (PDRB-3), Camlap Trolley Backpack (PCTB-3) and the PMH-3 Mini Hood for the camcorder's fold-out monitor.
