Has anyone had any problems with moisture etc in such cold conditions?

I'd hate to have my camera break down whilst i'm up there!

The problem I noticed is the images being blueish when I look pics on auto white balance on my fuji. I dont know how your camera will perform but most small camerasIve noticed will be blue. I was able to fix it with software but Ive tried to fix other peoplespics with software and it wouldnt touch it.

So its best to make sure to set it manually I dont understand why it makes it blue so if you dont have a specific choice for snow I dont know what you can set it to. Maybe someone knows what it would be. I dont think a UV filter would help the blue at least when I tried one on my fuji it didnt touch it at all.


Use the cloudy bright WB setting, this in effect is a warming filter. I own Fujis, and this is what works.

Actually cold air doesn't contain much any moisture, problem is that if surface is colder than environment moisture can start to form to it.

So if you go from cold to warm+humid put camera airtightly inside plastic bag and let it warm before taking it out of bag.

Your camera thinks it is looking at 18% grey, but it is looking at peak white so you will have an error of 2 1/2 stops. either open up 21/2 stops or use the EV COMP.
