    Default Any problems using a digicam in cold places?

    Has anyone used their digicams in cold places (snow covered mountain areas, etc.)?

    Most digicams' manuals state operating condition of 5 degrees C and above. But I've seen some photos posted here of snow and cold locations.

    So, can or not?

    I have used my CP995 when there is snow, either during the winter or on a mountain. So far no problem. Didn't notice any changes in battery life or picture quality.

    Just make sure you bring spare batteries.

    i brought my canon s40 to frankfurt a few months ago. the temperature was about 10șC. though it is above the operating temp but i noticed the battery life was a lot shorter. to reiterate my point, when i brought the uncharged battery back home and put in in the camera, it worked well for a long while more.

    Used my CP5k under wet misty conditions on mountains. Temperature about 5 degree plus camera will get wet from all the mist. Battery life was slightly shorter. About 1/3 shorter.
