Re: Experience with Z6 in very cold weather

Thanks for posting.  I am about to take my Z7 and Z6 to the Antarctica Peninsula, (along with DSLRs) where, being summer, it will not be as cold as it was for you in Nepal.

I took my Z7 out in Minnesota recently for a couple of hours as a test.  Temperature was 10F, -12C.  I left the viewfinder on continuously (to increase battery draw) and took a number of shots.  It worked fine.  Biggest issue was fogging my eyeglasses.

I think the batteries will not necessarily last as long in the cold, although I did not do a scientific test and did not distinguish between the ages of my batteries.  I plan to take a number of extras to Antarctica.
