Scott Gilmour, arctic photographer and videographer, and PNY, a provider of quality products for everything in and around the computer, have come together to give advice to photographers, detailing how to shoot great video and photos in extreme cold.
1. Polar environments are very dry and extremely cold. Your equipment will become easily susceptible to any additional moisture in the atmosphere. This will cause problems if you retreat from the cold into a warm environment (e.g. a tent), breathe on your camera, or trap air in it with a filter or a lens cap.
