Winter camera tip

No need to stop taking pictures just because it is cold out, but the weather can be tough on your camera. Just remember to protect it from the change in humidity when you come inside on a cold day.

This is really a simple tip - seal your camera in an air-tight plastic bag before you bring it inside after being out in the cold, and don't open the bag until the camera is roughly at room temperature. I found Ziploc 28cm x 27cm bags were big enough for my Canon 10D SLR and a couple of lenses.

Warm air inside has a lot of moisture that will condense when it comes in contact with a cold camera. That moisture is bad news for your lens and the electronics within your camera.
