Everest

Hello again,

The A1U I used on Everest was off the shelf and no one did anything special to it. Everything worked fine. However, I was not shooting in conditions as extreme as you would find in, say, Antarctica. I'm not sure where you are planning to go. In my experience, keeping my body running at extreme altitude was a much bigger problem than keeping my camera running. I'm in the process of editing through 13 hours of tapes right now and any problems I'm seeing are caused by things like being too hypoxic to remember a white balance or too out of breath to hold a steady shot. The gear never failed me.
As for the solar panels, I'm going blank on what they were. You might want to check Human Edge Tech. They also run Explorer's Web. They sell a variety of communications packages for explorers. (I hope its ok to post this info - I'm not part of that company in any way.)
Good luck on your travels.
