Baby, it's cold outside... But how do you protect your camera from the freezing weather? When the frost starts settling regularly and snow is on the horizon, it's tempting to rush out and start snapping away to capture those picture perfect winter scenes.
With our guide you’ll be able to snap away happily, without worrying about your battery suddenly dying or condensation ruining your lens.
In extreme conditions, camera battery performance can be depleted by up to 50% - they simply cannot hack the cold weather.
Condensation can easily form on both the end of your lens and also the camera body casing when subjected to extreme changes in temperature. So be careful when leaving the warmth of a building / car into the cold, and visa versa.
We don’t want to sound like an over-protective parent, but be careful when carrying your camera. In the cold, plastic becomes brittle, so your camera is more vulnerable to break on impact. Combine this with less grip from gloves, and slippery / hard ground, and it’s easy to see how the risk to your camera is enhanced.
