Mark II is a better winter camera than EM1X
29

Hi All

This morning it was -28 C degrees below zero and I shot with fully charged batteries for about 2 hours with Mark II and EM1X hung around my neck with unused and of course power off.

After about an hour, I tried to take pictures of the dipper when I noticed that both batteries were empty and the camera was unusable. At the time, Mark II still had over 70% of the first battery left and the second was still full even though I had only photographed with Mark II.

Next time in a such cold weather I will leave the EM1X at home as it is unusable in the freezing cold and I will only photograph with Mark II.

Both images have been taken with ND filter 1000X
