Everyone knows and has there own tricks to shoot in different environments, and I, living in the midwest, cannot simply go 3-4 months without shooting. So does anyone have any tricks they’ve learned over the years for shooting in the cold?
I had the opportunity to shoot both my digital sony a6000 and a (locally bought) Lubitel 2 medium format film camera in Siberia in the midst of winter. The temperatures were about -25C (-13F).
Make sure you bring more batteries when you go out. when it is cold batteries run out of juice pretty fast. But if you keep 1 ( or more) in your pocket en keep on switching them you should be able to shoot for a long time. In my case this meant half a day since the batteries of the A6000 by default run out of juice fast.
Besides the batteries I did not have any problems with my digital camera.
With my Lubitel camera, surprisingly enough I did not have any problems at al.
After I came back I developed the film and everything look good.
I hope this helped!
