Re: Looking to purchase dslr for minus temperatures

Check out this person who posts on DP Review often regarding his arctic adventures.  I think he's said -15F is the coldest he's gone...

I know I've taken a Pentax k10d, k20d, k30, k5 into freezing rain, heavy rain, snow for hours without even changing a battery.  I kind of take it for granted...

But when coming back into the house (or other warm area) don't take your camera out as this is when condensation will occur - leave it in a bag near a cold(er)part of the house and let it gradually come up to room temp.
