    Not me....my eyes are shut so the camera would be shooting all on its own

    My DW is the camera person and she wouldn't want to risk getting her camera soaked.

    Not until I have waterproof casing for my gear. I can't afford the chance at getting it wet. My stuff is wrapped in a poncho, as water tight as I can get it!

    Great shot though :thumbs:!

    Was not hard really. Got the camera ready as we were on the ascent, snapped the pic once we had crested & were on the way down, then immediately covered it up before we slammed into the bottom. No waterproof gear.

    You're braver than me! I wrap my camera and my shootsac, even though the sac is made of neoprene & should be relatively water safe.
