Extreme Weather?

What is the coldest/hottest/wettest you have had your NX5u in and successfully got the shot?

Re: Extreme Weather?

Shot outside for 6 hours when it was 110 degrees the other day. Touchscreen seems to stop working once you reach 100 but I try not to touch the screen anyway.

Shot over 4 days 2-3 hrs a day in minus 4 and no problems just had to be careful when finished everyday putting it away not to raise the temperature too quickly to avoid condensation.

I shoot in hurricanes all the time - most recently Irene when she was a CAT 3 115mph wind at Hope Town Bahamas. Got the eye too.

Re: Extreme Weather?

I shot hurricane Earl last year with a Sony MSW-900 and a snow storm with a Canon XH A1. Both times the cameras were fitted with custom PortaBrace rain covers. I couldn't say enough good things about them. Haven't had time to pick one up for my new NX5U but am sure it will work just as well.
