SL at -10°C

Recommended Posts

Finally winter has come to Stockholm after an exceptionally warm christmas and new year. The sun was shining and I took the SL for a walk. 

With thermo-glowed there was no problem operating the SL. I now appreciate the placement and heft of the on-off lever being an on-offer. The other buttons were also workable. Thankful for their size. And my hands kept warm. 

I did not take any precautions with the battery. It was not fully charged and I did not hold the hand-grip to keep it warm. The camera hung on the strap around my neck.


And the SL did function as usual. No temperature related problems during 90 minutes in the cold.

(As the M does at these temperatures apart from thermo-glove usability issue.)

Thanks Eric - i had now the same experience in St. Petersburg - except the index of the battery in the cold outside showed always one step lower status than inside. And inside it recovered. But that of course is usual. And I also had no problems to handle it with gloves which was really helpful when I used it in minus 17....

The SL was very reliable the whole time....

Here Petersburg contrasts....

Best regards
