| p.1 #7 · Weathersealing info for 5D2? |
Thanks for the reply Todd. Pretty basic common sense, I guess.
During my Google search, I came across an over-two year old thread at DP Review about 5DmkII failures in Antarctica. I'm trying to read between the lines (there is a lot of emotion on that particular thread). I won't be trampling through the rain forests of Borneo, but I see a variety of conditions. In fact, later this summer here in Texas I worried about the mkII in the 109F heat (the black body got very hot while shooting outdoors). Nothing bad happened, but it didn't stop me from worrying. I won't even mention the dust involved.
Soon it will be sleet/ice pellet/snow season in North Texas, and that stuff melts into water immediately after landing on the camera. Trying to be prepared...the idea of a fair-weather camera is a total waste...
Dude. Just shoot.
I've shot every camera I owned (including a 5D2) in just about every condition. I've shot many weddings here in Arizona summers - 115 degree heat for 8 hours - sometimes even doing video. I've also shot POURING rain, the kind where you walk inside and it looks like you just jumped in the pool. I've even sent one rolling down a snowy mountain, non-intentionally of course.
Now I would never recommend you actually do any of these things, but my point is that I have and I've never had an issue.
