BONK! Tough camera, better keep that one!

I'd love to have the 'chance' to drop mine on spikey lava... in Iceland!

I thought that when i dropped (at the time) a two week old digital camera on some spikey lava in Iceland a few years ago! The camera still works now.

The biggest trouble I've had with cold, with any camera, is the battery. I've left them out in -40 weather overnight, some completely covered with snow... (such abuse, it makes me cringe...) but dropping...? That could be the end of it!

Canons seem to take the cold pretty well, even dropped mine a couple times (not the SLR). Dropped a Nikon once & it was game over, it didn't like the cold too much either (not an SLR)!

I should have rigged an umbrella over it, or SOMETHING, but it was a 'spur of the moment' sort of thing, so out the door went the camera!

I knew it would be okay with the temps, (the only thing that would happen is the battery would die out from cold) but wasn't sure about getting snow into it's... innards.

Whoa....I have been enlightened! I didn't know any camera could withstand the elements like that! It must have built in thermal underwear!! COOL image Katy :)

Thanks Eileen (love your new portrait) cgb and Larry.

A bit different from Portugal cgb?

Yeah Larry, the camera didn't get the luxury of viewing from inside the house...

I was wondering how you got such a great view from inside your house. Now I know.

Pics like this make me appreciate what a wonderful planet we live on. Whilst you had snow, our overnight minimum here was 12deg, today full sun and I'm pruning vines in my t-shirt and shorts. Thank you for the refreshing picture and even more the snowfall sequence, Katy.
