Re: Tough tg-6 in cold weather experience?

I've used my TG-3 in those temperatures. The trick is to keep the camera warm. When not taking pictures, I put the camera in a interior coat pocket. The lower temperature range is mostly limited by the battery. It can't deliver the required current to operate the camera. I left my TG-3 in my day pack for several hours while out in -20°C conditions. It wouldn't power on until it warned up.

It wouldn't worry too much about special handling when going back inside. It's a waterproof camera. At most it will get condensation on its exterior surfaces. That can can be wiped off with a soft towel. But, if you plan to open one of the doors, definitely allows it to first warm up like you would for a normal camera.
