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!
Its all about layers over here :). although batteries die quickly
Make sure you bring more batteries when you go out. at the point when it is cold batteries run out of juice pretty quick. However, in the event that you keep 1 ( or more) in your pocket en continue exchanging them you should have the option to go for quite a while. For my situation this implied a large portion of a day since the batteries of the A6000 of course run out of juice quick.
