Alaska cameradude is an unknown quantity at this point

I've long ago moved on from being a staff shooter. I currently shoot on
Sony large sensor cams (FS5/7/700) for my production company.
Some of the stations use Panasonic P2 others use Sony XDcam, it's
all over the place. But the 'card based' cameras have fewer moving
parts with no tape transport and most hold up pretty well in the cold.
Of course you have the usual issues....keep batteries warm and give the
camera time when going from warm car into cold but I haven't had any issues
with my Sony cams. I've seen hand warmers gaff taped on batteries
and such. As for me, I'd rather use them for my hands and feet!
