Does anyone have any experiance shooting with this cam in colder weather, its supposed to be 40 degrees, with a low of 20 on the day im talking about shooting outdoors.
Should i expect any problems, or future problems due to the cold weather conditions this day.
Thanks for your imput.
You should expect problems with any camera at that temp, if you don’t take some precautions.
You’ll need to aclimate your gear, so leave it in the outdoor temp for a good half hour before you start shooting. Remember not to have a tape loaded in the VX when you do this. Expect a slow focus and zoom ring.
If you can , try to keep your batteries warm. They don’t last as long when cold.
You can also wrap your camera in a coat to insulate it. Since the cam puts off some heat, you should be able to trap some.
