I’m something of a desert rat, so while the Alaska trip was not my first experience with extreme cold it’s not something I do on a regular basis. This post is intended to be a summary of what worked and what didn’t.
I’m currently shooting with three different types of camera. My primary system is Olympus, with the OM-D EM5 being the main body and an E-P5 as a backup/carry it around solution. A Hasselblad 500 is a lovely enough tool that it’s even gotten me back into film to a limited degree. Finally I just got an entry level Phase One DF+/P20 for digital medium format. And of course I always have my iPhone with me – it takes surprisingly good pictures for a pocket sized package.
