    Keep Hands Warm while editing on computer

    If you're like me, your hands not only get cold during a shoot or while outdoors, when you sit down to edit on your computer, then they really get cold. I now use a heated mouse and have several great products from http://www.heatedmouse.com to keep my nice and cozy. No more space heater, at least I don't keep it cranked up as much -- the the Warm Mouse and the warm Heated slippers are both really great & my favorites. I picked up the warm heated shawl too, but so funny -- my wife stole it from me before I could try it out and uses it in bed with her laptop so I might want to get another one... one of these days. Ha ha.
    These little gadgets seem to get power to make the infrared heat from the USB on your computer, so no need to plugin otherwise than right into your computer. Pretty neat, thought I should share. Cheers!

    Sure, why not, if it's new info?

    This place ain't p.nut, after all, where a thread is dead after two or three days. Hell, the deleted thread was deleted almost 7 years ago, and it's still around! (Thanks to various miscreants) The moderators keep trying to lose it by moving it around, and we just keep finding it!
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Well, here's a general tip, as long as the thread is awake:

    Keeping your hands warm isn't enough, you need to be warm in general, or else, the hands and feet will get cold anyway. (the body removes blood from the extremities when you get chilly and your feet and hands are first to get cold if you aren't dressed properly.)

    I always get cold when handling the camera with my bare fingers, but if I am dressed properly in general, the hands will warm up after I cover them.

    Best gloves I have found for winter landscape photography are specialist shooting / fishing ones. The're windbloc fleece, and have a fold-down bit to free thumb and forefinger for doing fiddly tasks without taking gloves off. Mine are made by Orvis but many shooting / fishing equipment makers have similar.

    Head over to MEC (or check out www.mec.ca) and have a "look-see" at their selection of Polartec gloves. Last winter, when shooting in Banff and Jasper National Parks, I used mid-weight Polartec gloves with a light-weight liner. I had no problems keeping the digits functional while retaining dexterity of same.

    I think you'd have much better luck with a dog.
    Yeah, and a dog won't complain about your hygiene...

    Seirus makes great gloves that are warm but offer high dexterity. I still have a pair that I have destroyed over a 5 year period. Its not waterproof anymore, but is still warm. They look really cool too! Down side is that they are very pricey. =[

    If you have a pair of those wool gloves I grew up using whilst fishing--fingers cut off for tying bait but with a mitten flap that usually velcrows to the top--you can add one of those heat packs into that foldable mitten top. Surprising how much that helps.
