    Arctic photographer shuns digital for classic Leica

    An arctic photographer has chosen a film-based Leica MP camera to record his latest expedition because he says digital cameras are unreliable in extreme conditions.

    Not surprising. Apparently the biggest problem with digital cameras in extreme cold is the batteries?

    If I was going on a trip like that, I would definitely take a fully mechanical film camera and a sack full of film along with my digital. I kind of wish I still had my old Yashica FX3.
