Re: Antarctica Expedition, 5D II or III

Firstly I am no Arctic explorer so please feel free to ignore my advice..

As you have rightly said you can't just pop to the shops if any of your equipment breaks and you will be subjecting them to some pretty extreme conditions! Therefor I would highly recommend you have 2 bodies for redundancy. So if your'e budget is limited maybe 2 5Dii would be a better idea?

You will also need lots of batteries, as in very cold weather a batteries performance goes down hill very rapidly!
