Trouble with your cameras in cold conditions?
7 tips that will help you

Digital Cameras in cold weather

Using cameras in cold Lapland winters can be rewarding. But the cold can be a nuisance. Here are a few tips to keep your camera working even in cold conditions.

1. Try to keep your camera as warm as possible. Keep it inside your coat when not in use to keep the battery from draining.

2. Don't panic if the camera doesn't work properly because of the cold. Just put it back in your coat to warm it up. You may even take out the battery and place it near the warmth of your body.

3. If possible, bring extra batteries with you.

4. Rapid change in temperature causes condensation and may cause short circuitry or other damage. Always shut down the camera before entering a heated building.

5. You can avoid condensation by putting your camera in a tight plastic bag before entering the building.

6. Remember that automatic zooming of a frozen lens requires lots of power. An alternative to zooming is to use the a high resolution setting and and the enlarge on your computer later.

7. The same principles apply to non-digital cameras with batteries. If you are to going to stay outside in the cold with such cameras, it is still important to keep the battery warm.
