    Ah well, thanks for letting us know. Good on ya for trying.
    Years ago I was north of the tree line in Quebec in February. It was minus a bajillion. I was trying to take photos with my Nikon. I kept it in my coat between shots, but fumbling to focus with my mitts on was difficult. I managed a couple of shots and then the film snapped when I wound it.

    There's always portraits and still life until the weather warms a little.

    Developed and contact printed the negatives tonight. A couple of decent efforts but they all suffer from basic exposure and composition errors, none of them I am happy with.

    I'll head out with my Fuji 6x9 next time, I can operate much quicker with that camera in the extreme cold as I don't carry my light meter or even focus it much, normally it is Sunny 16 and zone focus. I don't think my Pentax's motor drive would be happy at those temperatures.

    Just to update this thread I ended up going with a Jobo Multitank and 2509 reel, I use it on an old unicolor motor base and that seems to work well. I didn't like fishing around in trays with my fingers.

    Also I was out shooting at -20 C yesterday and that was much better. The camera controls were still stiff but overall a much happier experience.

    I started with a Hasselblad 501 and 60mm Zeiss lens. Within 8 months I added Wista 4x5 with 2 lenses and extras and also a very special Szabad 8x10. And I had no intentions of ever touching LF. Silly me!

    In a few days I will be going out shooting with the Wista in Eastern Montana and we've had highs of -3F last few days. Which I bet seems tropical for you. But I will make sure to think of you when I'm cursing at my numb and useless fingers

    Jobo on a print roller base

    Some pics of the little Jobo in action it works well on the roller base. I use 500 ml of chemicals just to have a little extra coverage due to the angle the tank sits at.
