Hello, I'm completely new to the forums and pretty new with digital video in general. I have a question though about taking a consumer grade digital video camera on the beach. Obviously, I'm afraid that sand could get into it and screw everything up (which would be especially bad since the camera is borrowed).
Has anybody had experience taking a DVC on the beach with them? If so, how did you sandproof it?
Basically all I'm worried about is using the lense, the record button and the stop button so I was thinking about using painters tape to tape up all cracks in the device and then trying to rig some sort of plastic around it as well, storing it in ziplock bags (or something similar) when not in use.
Any advice on this would be very helpful and I apologize if I have posted this in the wrong forum. TIA.
