I am a bit farther north (Canada) and it gets a bit colder here as well. I follow 2 different methods.
1 If I am only going to use the camera for a few shots and I am in or near a warm place that I am returning to either in between or after shooting, I try to keep the camera under my jacket to keep it warm, take the shots, return it under the jacket and then get back to a warm place. In other words, limit the time the camera is in severe temperatures.
2 If I am going to be outside taking pictures for a while, let the camera reach outside temperature, within the limits identified by the manufacturer. Keep it outside and keep it from getting wet (snow or snow pellets). Then when you are ready to go into a warm place, like the car or a house, place the camera in a sealable plastic bag, remove the air and seal it. Place it in a camera bag or wrap it in clothing so the temperature of the camera returns slowly. The plastic bag will reduce the likelihood of condensation forming directly on the camera body or on the lens.
One of the worst scenarios involves taking a camera into the cold, bringing it in to a warm place and after it gets covered in condensation, return it to the cold where the condensation turns to ICE!
My policy has been either try to keep the camera warm (#1) or keep it cold (#2)
Hope this helps,
hello... im shooting with a Canon digital Rebel and have a quick question
about shooting in winter months...
im in Missouri and the winters can get pretty brutal but also give
opportunity for great shots... my question is if i take my camera out of the
bag from my warm vehicle, will the lens get covered in fog like eye glasses
do?... i realize i should avoid breathing on the lens, but will just the
difference in temperatures be enough to fog the shot?...
thanks for any help.... i have a million other questions but i'll try to
limit myself to one a day...
