    Re: D610 cold weather shooting

    Back in my pre-digital photo days I had issues in the cold with my film cameras. Shutters slowed, and batteries stopped working very quickly when the temperature went below freezing.

    Yeah, but your Canada Nikon is used to the cold!!!!

    He's likely got some of those warmer packs inside it, too. The battery bunny has to be kept warm.

    Wind chill affects people and other living things but has no impact on non-living things. The operating minimum temp of 0C (32F) is air temp. So you could have an air temp of 1C and a 40KMH wind producing a negative wind chill and you would still be operating 1C above the minimum.

    What wind can do is cool an object faster and move the object temp below freezing faster if the air temp is below freezing, but wind cannot cool anything below the actual air temperature.

    I'm guessing the reason the minimum is the freezing point of water is that moisture freezing inside the camera and lens will reduce the performance. Assuming this is why, if you happen to be in drier air, the colder temps will have less impact on performance.

    D610 cold weather shooting
    I went out this AM here in Maine with the wind chill at -20 using my D610 and 24-70 2.8 with no issues. Although I had to duck into the car every 10 minutes the images were OK. Here's an example...

    Not a D610 but I noticed that when cold, mine becomes less responsive button wise. The multi-selector in specific can become annoying when you have to push it several times before it responds. My other had it too so it's probably normal.

    In either January or February 2014, I was out in the bitter cold (below freezing) taking lots of shots of ice forming on the river. My D610 (which at the time was only a couple of months old) eventually wouldn't display the photos after I pressed the shutter. It wound up being fine with no lingering problems once the camera warmed up.

    @zutty.....I think I would have brightened up the image a bit. I love the composition but it lacks the pop that brightness can bring. Thanks for sharing!
