One of the members here did a days shoot in Denmark I believe it was, shooting rain. At the end, last slide, he showed the camera being absolutely soaking wet and mentioned how it has good seals to keep it dry for just such a thing. It was a D60. I have a D40X.

Can I go out in the rain and take shots without worries of ruining it? I mean, I am not going to hold it out under a downpour all day, but are they designed for photographers to be able to go out during rainstorms? I would think yes, since photojournalists have to shoot hurricanes, rain flooding, etc.

I am talking REASONABLY wqaterproof, not an underwater camera I can drop into the lake and retrieve with an accidental shot of a trophy bass...although, that would be nice

I say this because Hurricane Hannah is coming this way in a few hours. I may want to take some practice shots like he did.

Thanks so much.
