Whatcha got? Many cameras are weather sealed to protect from rain/spray.

I have a 7D II. A canon 17-40 f/4 or the 24-70 f/2.8

7D2 is weather sealed and the 17-40L is weather sealed when you use a UV filter over the objective lens.

How long will you be there?
I shot near the base of the falls for two days & if you're there for an extended period of time I suggest one of the camera rain housings. (external link)
Plan on not changing lenses & image cards while downwind of the mist.

Things can be very wet from spray on the behind-the-falls tour. They give you a 'body baggie' to cover yourself, which could keep the camera dry until you pull it out from under the baggie to shoot, and during the time you are shooting you will need to worry about the LENS not being sealed even if the body has that water resistance.

That certainly looks as though it provides good protection, but the other issue is

  • how well you can get to controls and how well you can see the viewfinder while the camera is in that bag.
  • Also, will your chosen lens FIT?
