Thread: Gloves and half-shutter

    Default Gloves and half-shutter

    Does anybody have any recommendations / advice for winter gloves?

    Thick gloves = cannot feel half-shutter point
    Thin gloves = less insulation

    Gloves that don't cover your fingertips/removable fingertips for the forefinger. There are gloves like these, just have to find them. I'll try to look for some pictures.

    I study in Toronto and it gets really cold there in winter. I've found that those half-fingered gloves don't work for me, my fingers get really really cold, especially if it's snowing and the snow's melting on my fingers.

    I use a compromise - not to thin, not too thick, but full-fingered. And I try not to take my hands out of my pockets too often. I also connect my camera's cabled release, and I trigger it from inside my pocket when my camera's on a tripod.

    if its really cold, you can do it with two layer of gloves.. the inner one is the thin one, that lets you feel the buttons and move your fingers...

    then outside you wear a thick mitten type one that dont have finger slots one...

    so when you wanna shoot just remove the outer one for a short time shoot, then put back..

    or you can use those with the half can fold back kind then still can keep ur palm warm.. just expose the inner glove the fingers part..

    This is interesting. How does the removable ones work? Via velcro?

    when you need thick gloves, typically , strong winds are invoked
    does the removable cover goes well with wind proofing ?

    i customize my woolen glove by cutting a small hole near the tip of the shooting finger and then sewing on a little overlap cover to keep the hole covered (and insulated) when not shooting

    aiyah.... otherwise just cut off the glove finger and sew some velcro on to keep it attached to glove when not shooting ..... ditto the thumb too

    otherwise go check out the websites of outdoor sporting goods companies ..... fishermen fishing in the winter have the same problems as us using gloves while working with reels and other stuff that only a finger can finesse

    Winter fishing gloves, wind/water proof + flexibility. That's an idea.

    Tks for sharing.

    fingerless gloves.

    but nothing beats using your hands alone, even if it gets numb.

    Saw OP in SLS has one that can either expose the index or cover up when not needed. Not sure if it is pure leather or PVC, but suitable for winter.
