Arctic - Antarctic photography

Digital sensors are rated around 32f to 104f. Because of that do they still use "winterised" film slrs on expeditions ? Or do they have heated housings? Keeping you camera warm in our winter is one thing but those conditions are something different.

Re: Arctic - Antarctic photography

I have no first hand experience but Richard Sale the Arctic Explorer and photographer used to just take a modified Nikon film camera (modified by Nikon to cope with the low temperatures). More recently he started to take a digital camera ( as well) and found the main problem is keeping charge in the battery and avoiding condensation. He always keeps the camera under his clothing to keep it warm until he actually needs to use it but did not have to use a specially modified digital camera.

Re: Arctic - Antarctic photography

Olympus used to do a camera specifically for these conditions: µ TOUGH-8000 | Compact Digital Cameras | Olympus Imaging Asia

It seems to be out of production now, so perhaps it wasn't a success.

Re: Arctic - Antarctic photography

Some info...

Nikon D300 Field Test - PhotographyBLOG

A quote...

"Fortunately, the temperature also drops way below freezing on several days. It is -20°C and the Nikon D300 is totally oblivious to the forces of nature. The camera also withstands the damp caused by the snow flurries without problem. Even though I have brought along several batteries, one battery is enough for an entire day's photography in the cold. Incredible! "
