Saran Wrap. Works well and you can see the viewfinder - if you cut a small hole to view. Also a hole for the front lens element so you are not shooting through the plastic wrap.

Protects and doesn't cost much at all.

Don't drop the camera into the water as this is not a waterproof housing and water will leak in - mainly through the opening for your lens element.

Also consider a Canon 77mm Protector Filter (like Shaun_Nyc mentioned) for your 70-200mm lens. used $41.95

New: $64.95

And a lens hood. $44.95

You can start the Saran Wrap by taping to the lens hood.

Basically the only things exposed to water spray will be the protective filter and possibly the viewfinder. Both should be easy to clean with damp fresh water cloth. You could carry the cloth in a zip lock bag.

Or some lens wipes. $9.00 at Walmart.
