Beware this review will make you want to abuse your equipment.

Still photographer Ole Jørgen 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 didn´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 didn´t use any protection from rain or snow.”

No Report on video performance in the post, but it’s good to see the cameras work in such cold environments. Overheating was not a problem in Antartica.  Review Link Here.

My country’s pride, haha! :)

I’m afraid to risk my gear like that, so I just recently ordered(still waiting) for a camera/tripod mount which you can mount an umbrella on(originally meant for flash) which I’ll be using for all the snow here in Norway! Hopefully it’ll work and not look too stupid. Either way it was just $15 for both mount and umbrella.

Looking at how he didn’t use any other protection than that bag he sure is a madman!
