Hi! I'll be working on a film later this year and it will take place in Scotland where temperatures tend to get very low during the winter months. What's the best advice for operating in snow/cold can you give? Thanks.
Hello - I'm going to be shooting on a Sony F55 in a freezer room with temps ranging from about -30 to -70 fahrenheit (yes, negative). I'll only be doing short stints inside when it gets really cold - maybe 15 minutes at a time. I have a Portabrace Polar wrap for the F55 which is great. I plan to stuff some hand warmers in there as well. Does anyone have experience filming in these temps? If I'm going to be coming and going with frequency, our team is thinking we should leave the camera in the cold room, in the Polar Bag, and then inside a large standard Portabrace bag with additional hand warmers to keep the temps up. Better than coming and going? I'm concerned about condensation when I step out of the freezer and back into a normal 70 degree room. I'm planning to bring some big trash bags to create a vapor barrier liner around the camera in hopes that the condensation forms on the exterior of the bag. Should I plan to double bag it so the condensation happens between the two bags? Any tips, tricks, or thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
I'm the DP on a short, and our exterior scenes will be shot this Saturday in rural Quebec. The temperature is supposed to be around -20C (-4F). I hear cameras don't do very well in the extreme cold, what precautions can I take? What are possible side effects from shooting in this temperature (other than loosing my fingers)?
