Hi everyone, Has anyone used their FZ28 out in the cold. The manual states the operating temperature is 0 to 40 degrees celsius. I'm also aware of possible condensation on the lens when going back indoors. Could there be any other problems with the camera.
I tried it last week and this weekend. Temperature was about -6 to -12 degrees and extreemly dry air.
I did not encounter 1 issue.
You must accept the fact that during these temperatures the batt life will drop and that having a second batt is a must have for a full day of fun. You must also be carefull with the change from warm to cold and visa versa.
In my signature you'll find a link with the photo's that I took last weekend.
Welcome to the club.
You have every reason to love this versatile camera. I am still doubting to buy a dslr since the image quality, weight, lens, raw etc of the FZ28 is superb and more then good enough when you have enough light.
I might still buy a dslr for indoor camera work and use a 18-55 lens.
