Its fun to shop for a new camera. I haven't done that for a while now.

Best of luck. Of course we all want to see what you emerge with.... Show and tell!

Anything with batteries is not a great idea. 20 or more below Fahrenheit is not very good for them unless you can keep them warm somehow. Around the fire in the lodge works great, outside...not so much.
My Kiev seems bombproof as well. At least it stood up to the cold without any problems (fogging aside). But, I have had such a heck of a time with the "Contax hold" or "Kiev hold" trying to keep my finger out of the way of the RF window, but still being able to press the shutter, and reaching the focus wheel (or at least that pesky infinity lock). I gave up on the Kiev. So many other cameras that are easy for me to hold and use.

i should note that i have been winter shooting for years with just my regular gear…it can be done…but this year i thought i'd make it easier on myself with a camera that was made for the task.

the deed is done.
i bought a lumix ts30...a red one!
i think it has what i want, hopefully the above water images will be ok. it is small, could hang around my neck on a long lanyard or fit in the coin pocket of my jeans. bought an extra battery and that should do me for the winter...
did i mention that it's red?
