No problem with GX1 and fingerless glove/mittens
In reply to FW Scharpf, Feb 19, 2013

I recently took my GX1 out for an afternoon in the snow and had little difficulty. Temps were not arctic, so I was able to get by fine with a pair of fleece fingerless glove/mittens. They're fingerless gloves that have an attached mitten end that covers the fingertips and flips back and velcros to the back of the glove to expose the bare fingertips. Most of the time I was able to operate my GX1 with my fingertips covered. Couldn't feel the buttons, but know where they are well enough to find them anyway. Occasionally had to poke out one finger to operate the rear wheel. Some sticky rubber on the thumb would help there.
