Last night I shot a 6 hour time-lapse on the summit of the highest peak in the east. My 1DX turned white with ice and snow, but kept clicking all night long. Hope you enjoy the clip.

Here is a single image from the sequence:

Beautiful piece of photography !
Thank you, I appreciate it!

Sizing down an image adds "anti aliasing" basically. Sharpening counteracts that. Still wondering what u actually mean. If you get jagged edges in your photos maybe ur method of resizing or sharpening is just not good.
Sizing down may add aliasing as well (it depends on the algorithm you use). I was interested in exact reason that led to the issue, to expand my knowledge base  :)

Very awesome :) Thanks for sharing. What'd you do for power? Was that on just the 2 batteries in the grip? They lasted the whole 6 hours of continuous shooting in that cold? Wow!

Thanks! Unfortunately there isnt a good photo. I brought that camera in first, and then collected the others. By the time I made it back to the tower (which is just above freezing) the camera just looked wet. I'll be out there again tonight, so there's a chance for a pic tomorrow.

The 1DX only takes a single battery, and it is different from the batteries in the 5D's (maybe someone here can explain what makes them different as I'm not entirely sure). I was worried that the cold might zap it a little quicker, but it held up just fine. At the third hour I swapped out for a fresh one, but there was still a bar left.

1D-series use 3 cells in series (~11V), compared to 2 (7.2V) for others. In terms of mAh, the higher voltage gives 50% more capacity in theory, but if you calculate energy density, it comes to same number. So it's all about volume, and 1D batteries are roughly same size than 2 "standard" batteries, thus giving roughly twice the capacity compared to one normal.

Cold hurts batteries, at ~-15C (~0F) you typically get only 50% of the nominal capacity.

Very nice.  It has a (COOL) Star Wars-y look, at risk of going full-nerd.

Very nice job. Can you tell me what the temperature was?
At the end of february I'am going to Kamtsjatka. Temperatures can drop there to minus 40 degrees Celsius, but will be normally around -25 degrees.  We go camping on the beach!!!!. I' ll take my 1D mark4 AND 1D-X and hope they keep working.

Thanks.

It was about 12 degrees Fahrenheit I think. The cameras that weren't as exposed did much better in terms of battery life. I've seen some pretty creative heated cases that can be used for extreme conditions as well. I'm sure if you google it you will find some crazy solutions that people have come up with. Have a great trip!

I knew is twas higher voltage, didn't realize that the 1D only took 1 battery, I thought with it's built-in grip would take 2 like the other battery grips.

Nice work :)

I've started doing a similar thing with my 5D mk3. The last attempt of mine, taking 325 images over 4 hours ended up with heavy dew after image 24  :'(

What lens did you use?
5D mk3 with grip, 300 f4 L, 100 IS Macro L, 50 f1.4, 50 f1.8, 40 f2.8 pancake, 35 f2, 1.4x TC III, Zeiss 15mm f2.8, 24 f1.4 L
580EX II, MT-24EX Macro Flash
EF 12mm and 25mm II Extension tubes
