Does anyone have any gloves they like to use for shooting? I am thinking of asking for some for Christmas, but I am not sure what to ask for. Currently, I just use some fairly thin leather gloves from Brooks Brothers -- they are not exactly made for the job, but they are thin and flexible enough to operate most cameras fairly easily.
In the past I have tried the fingerless gloves that turn into mittens, but they are awkward, and it is also freezing, since you usually need them in the fingerless position in order to do anything.
The problem here in Iceland is that, while it is not particularly cold, it is generally very windy -- so it may not get under 25 degrees (-4C) very often, but it will be blowing 20mph on a normal day (10 m/s). This freezes fingers much quicker than just cold weather alone.
So has anyone found any gloves that are 1. Flexible, easy to change small dials, buttons and so on, but 2. Warm and windproof (ideally water resistant too...many days are just over freezing and raining).
I tried the ones Lowepro makes, but they are not warm enough and the weird rubber dots on them leave residue on the equipment.
