1 serie and Extreme Temperture...

I was wondering what was the worst temperture extreme that you have put you camera into?

I was in Siberia, Russia last week and it was -40 outside at night. The battery drained really fast if you don't keep them inside your coat and the LCDs screen on my camera was responding really slow but it keeped on working without problem.

It even survived the -40 to +22 thermal shock when I entered a building. The camera got covered with a pelicule of ice and when it melted off, the trusty 1D was convered with water. But through all this process, it remained fully fonctionnal.

My 6y old 1DII can be trusted with my eyes closed... I cannot say the same about my North Face boots. Both cracked open under the cold.
