Thanks Francois, going through that right now.
Thanks Scott for the tips, btw I guess main chance of condensation would be, when I keep moving in and out of the car, so I should wrap that camera each time, before getting in?
Shaun, not sure whether I can get it in India and that too before my departure.
Thomas, I wasn’t planning to put both the batteries in to the grip. Just one would remain in it, while the other one is kept inside my shirt’s pocket. Essentially got the grip for vertical shooting and for the ability to use AAs, when needed. Otherwise I am very satisfied with the performance of my 1000D’s battery, which generally lasts for at least 1200 shots in not so cold climate. Having said that, I will heed to your and Sharo’s advice, wouldn’t put on the grip, till I need to start shooting with the AA batteries. Oh yes, I almost always shoot RAW
Feppe, the max I have witnessed is -4. Though at that time I was on a motorcycle and was wet from head to toe, so it felt colder than it actually was, but surely, nothing compared to what I am about to face, as the lowest the mercury drops in Delhi is around 4 degrees Celsius! So it is sort of extreme for me.
Thanks Sharo, will avoid using the grip, unless I need to shoot with AA.
