At least on the Northern hemisphere. :) Yesterday morning it was -2 °C and now -4 °C, and even if now the day temperature is some degrees above zero, the sub zero flights are approaching inevitably.
My fleet is ok with freeze-up, but do you guys have some tips and tricks with the camera?
I don't have freeze-certified cameras, but during winter they usually keep above acceptable temperature, because of hand and body heat. But now I'm supposed to leave it hanging in the air, so what to do?
I know when coming back inside, I should be careful with condensation, but what about going out, should I maneuver some tempering, or is it ok just to start shooting?
The battery life will be shortened, but it seems that the A640 has pretty impressive battery life to start with, so I guess it can still handle a longish session. Can't wait to see what will the temperature drop do to the image noise, as per 8 °C degree drop in CCD temperature should halve the heat incurred noise. :)
