Didn’t cut the coupling down
I have a hood I attach with Velcro but it rains sideways here so filter still gets rain on

It's hard to tell from the pics. Is the coupling sitting on the outside of the case, and screwed tight from the inside? It appears to be just a 3" coupling from the images? It looks to be a uniform diameter the entire length. This is the 4" - 3" reducer I found at lowes ...

Yes it’s a different brand
The coupler is on outside screwed from inside as you describe, filter is in chamfer

On my coupler the 3” goes inside the coupler then the coupler goes inside the 4”

Nice.

One of the things you may find is that mounted low near the ground, raindrops splash back off the ground and onto the filter. Even with a hood over they are splashing sideways :-( . I find, from hard ground, the splash is much further than I'd imagined. I usually pop some scrim netting down under the camera to break the drops on the softer surface. Works to some extent but not perfectly as I need to keep the scrim out of frame but I don't want to raise the camera higher either so, at the moment, I just live with it... Oh well.

Have you tried cutting a short piece of 4" pvc pipe, and slipping it over the end of your bushing to deflect rain? Curious as to your findings.

I’ve tried s few things, the enclosure has a rain shield a bit like the one shown further up this thread. Solves rain issue except that obviously doesn’t stop the up splash!

I’ve added a screw in lens hood onto the front shorkel filter (82mm) like this:

This stays on all the time now but doesn’t completely eliminate the issue. It may help but it’s hard to be completely sure. Conundrum is that I can’t use a longer hood or tube or hood as I’m using a wide angle lens (typically about 20-24mm FF equivalent) so anything more protective just causes vignetting on the corners. I can’t see a way round it really when the lens is around 8-10” from the ground. Just try to be sensible about placement and shield the earth if it’s a bit bare.

I thought about it but decided as I mostly use lenses 11-16 and the wide end of 16-85 I would get vignetting so went for the hood option
