    Go full manual and film. LOL. Less worries about electronics not working.

    I recall there was a thread somewhere by one of the ladies that is going to be on the antarctic(?) arctic(?) everest(?) expedition asking about suitable camera gear for extreme temperatures.

    May I ask people here who ever gone to the place that only 25C below 0C..What did you wear to protect yourself ah? I only go to the place 8C..I already cant stand it although I wear alot of winter coats..I felt unconfortable and hardly move my hand (too tight lah) so unflexible.

    If you go to the place -25C,i thinkthe cam still work but don't know how to press the button..Wear gloves thick like 1cm..
    A person is useless unless he is standing up for himself, for his future, and for his dreams.

    Uh. Maybe use shutter release cable? Heh. No problems with that even with your thick gloves on.

    I used sealskin(sic) gloves when I was training overseas in winter... With the wet weather, wind chill and all on top of the mountain, maybe about 10 degs or less. Those worked pretty well in keeping the cold out of my hands and still allowed me to feel the trigger on the rifle pretty well.

    Not sure if they have a usable application in photography though. Heh.

    probably works the same when triggering the shutter, you need the precision.
