    Praise the Lord, ths ski season is fast approaching:D. I am hoping to get out shooting this winter, get some powder shots and some snowpark action and I was wondering about the associated health risks to my beloved camera. Sitting in my backpack at - 20 celcius all day. I've heard that below freezing is actually good for the film but i was wondering more about the fine mechanics of the camera, i.e the autofocus motor and stuff like that. Will she survive?

    She should be fine but you may want to read up in your manual too. It will tell you minimum operating temperature. One thing, though, is to bring plenty of replacement batteries because they tend to not last as long in the freezing cold.
