Re: Make a Pro/Con list

I have left my a77 outside in -10C temps for 4 hours.  I put the camera on a pole clamp and ball head on a diy 1.5 inch PVC frame I made, bit rectangle with a leg.  Use a trigmaster radio trigger from my 2nd story office.  Left it there to go out and when I got back had 95 percent of the battery left.  A battery fits fine in my jeans.  The spare.  never used it yet.

I get around 600 shots on one battery, in the cold.

Something is amiss here.

I have 3 chargers and 4 batteries, all of them marked. All OEM.  Never ever had a problem.  I even bought the vertical grip and can put in 3 batteries but NEVER got to the 2nd.

I call this myth busted.
