The RS-AMIRA is custom fit to the Arri AMIRA camera. It is made from waterproof Nylon Taslan material and complemented by a soft Tricot interior layer that protects the camera and reduces noise during operation. In addition to being waterproof (1000MM waterproof rating) the Taslan material is breathable (1000G/MÂ² breathability rating), allowing heat from the camera to escape while the cover is deployed.
Clear Vinyl windows are used to provide unobstructed visibility of camera controls. Velcro-sealed openings are carefully placed to provide full access to controls and power supply without allowing water to seep in. The adjustable lens gasket creates a tight seal around a wide range of lens sizes, including cinema lenses and matte boxes. The waterproof material that forms the cover around the lens also adjusts to accomodate different lens lengths.
Optional Modules (sold separately):
The RS-AMIRA also has 2 optional modules for customizing the Rain Slicker acording to your specific usage.
The top-mounted monitor / light cover, RS-TB, is designed to protect either a camera-mounted light or monitor while shooting in the rain. The entire module is constucted using clear vinyl so that light or viewing the monitor is unobstructed for the camera operator.
The tripod-mounting ""skirt"" module, RS-TS, protects the camera from splashing while mounted on a tripod. The RS-TS is constructed of Nylon Taslan material, like the main body of the Rain Slicker.
