What? Has Canon abandon their pro shooters? A 5D would not survive 2 months in the condition I shoot and my 1DII is getting very old. Yes I could get a IV but this time I'm hoping for a FF 1D or 1Ds.
What conditions are those?
When it rains, I can't stop. When it's -45 degree Celsius in Siberia, I have to take shots. Than there is thise days when the camera is so dirty that I have to put it in bath and wash it with the shower before taking the lens off.
Of course I pay attention to the gear also. I don't expose it if I don't have too. But I'm never gonna loose a shot because my camera is too weak to survive it. In my case, a 5D is useless. Unless they put 45 point AF and complete weather protection to it.
Any recommendations for shooting in -45C temperatures? What gear do you use, and do you use any gear protection ? I'm having a trip soon and i'm sure i'm going to run into those kinds of temperatures, to the point of where i'm thinking in buying a 1DsIII and even then i'm not sure about the camera survivability or battery duration. Camera operator survivability is an issue as well.
