Hi All,
we going to shoot at an very cold area -20 Celsius, do any one know if there is any steps that we have to take before we arrive to this area and what equipment we need to take with us.
Thanks, Yaron.

Any polluted snow dust will eat (damage) the optical coatings off your outside- most lens surface immediately, so a lens window or conditions of no such problem are needed. Any grease in moving parts will stop moving, so choose dry moving parts. You`ll be putting your battery belts and canteen (hot or cold) inside of your coat. If you fog your lens with your breath don`t dream of wiping it off. And last, this snow shoveller`s wisdom, don`t open your zipper all the way or you can`t get it closed, don`t close your zipper all the way or you can`t get it open. That`s all. Fred Jodry, the one who knows. Happy new year!

We just shot 3 days in freezing cold Quebec City at -30c by night and everything went A1. Even at the end of the russian arm while driving it holded up.
