Beware this review will make you want to abuse your equipment.
Still photographer Ole JÃ¸rgen Liodden and his pet Seal posted a cold weather report on the Canon 1D Mark III, the 5D Mark II, and 7d. All cameras came out of Antarctica with flying colors. This guy beats his gear senseless and it comes out unscathed.
“My 1DS Mark III is built like a tank and is heavily weather sealed. I didnÂ´t drop it into sea water this year, but used it without worry or protecting it from bad weather. It worked as expected, without problems.
The big surprise was the 5D Mark II. I used this camera as hard as (but not as much) the 7D and it performed superbly. I didnÂ´t use any protection from rain or snow.”
No Report on video performance in the post, but itâ€™s good to see the cameras work in such cold environments. Overheating was not a problem in Antartica. Â Review Link Here.
