I recently purchased a brand new CANON 60D EOS for a great price! It's the first DSLR I've ever
bought and I have several projects lined up for this bad boy once I get my hands on it later today!
I have a few questions and would love some assistance:
How best to protect the camera during the extreme winter between 0 to -35 degrees. I currently live in
Finland you see, the winters are very harsh and sunlight is almost non-existent here.
I've tried to look around for guides for which type of bag is best, but I still feel like I don't know enough.
All I know is that you need an extra battery or two when going out. I have two batteries.
A ziploc or airtight bag so that the camera can warm up by itself inside a building to prevent
condensation and fog clouding the lenses and other sensitive components. I am going to buy.
Never to breath on or near lenses or wave them near any kind of smoke/steam or vapour.
I have a question however. What about a camera bag with heat packs or heat packs right next to the
batteries. You would take the batteries out when you are finished and only put them back in the camera
once you are taking photos. I saw that a cold camera is good, but a cold battery is bad because it shortens
their life span by like 90%. I've experienced that too with my friend's powershot.
A requirement that I am looking for is not too big, because I will most likely carry around a rucksack filled
with stuff as well. Unless you know of a good bag that can carry a camera, an 18-55mm lens, a 75-300mm
lens, a 15 inch laptop, charger, a small book and a medium sized lunch box all in one! Safely and securely.
But I would appreciate it if you could point me to some bags that can carry a camera with one lens
and bags that can carry two lenses.
Thanks for reading!
