I spoke with Patti from Camera Essentials last week.

If 20 of us commit to purchasing a rain cover for the Cinetronic Gen 2 monitor she can make them.

It would have to accommodate the largest setup which I guess is the the http://cam-jam.de/qma.htmlwith a Dionic HC attached.

They would look like http://www.transvideo.eu/store/Raincovers 

Leave a note if you are committed to purchasing one and email her info@cameraessentials.com

 

I didn’t discuss price but based the Transvideo ones I guess  they will be under $100

I think you'd be hard pushed to find 20 people who still own a Cinetronic...

That aside, the Cinetronic was fairly waterproof. I don't even use covers on my Transvideo now, just a bit of tape over the buttons.

Guys, let's keep on topic please. While the monitor is pretty weather resistant, I'd still like to have a proper cover. Thank you.

1 gallon ziplock baggie should fit over the monitor with a battery on it

Aside from the great daylight view-ability, size and on-screen level with external sensor, it's weather proof design is what still make this monitor desirable. I concur with Ron's cost effective suggestion if one really wants additional protection.

I carry a roll of Saran wrap in my kit, makes for great rain covers on the go. Anything you need to protect from water, just layer it. For the monitor, I usually wrap the screen once and pin it in the back.

I'm in complete agreement with William.

When fancy covers get wet, you have to dry the buggers out. With clingfilm, as we Eurps call it, you just rip it off and toss it into the North Pacific Gyre when you're done with it.

Yup, been carrying Saran wrap for years and its what I currently have for that monitor.  The one gallon bag is not wide enough with the yoke in place (unless I tried the one size below by accident).
