    Photographers Gloves

    Its turning winter here already. I've never been happy using gloves, the ones I've used are too thick to use the camera.

    Are there any special "photographers gloves" available?
    What do you guys use?

    I have a pair of mittengloves as the Mrs. calls them. Their gloves with the ends of the fingers cut off and a "hood" that pulls up and over them to form a mitten. Keeps your fingers warm till you need them, then you don't need to pull the whole thing off. You should easily find them an hardware/building stores.

    Lowepro include in their catalog a pair of gloves they advertise as been designed especially for photographers but also good for bicycling.

    I've used bicycling gloves in the past, but I just picked up a nice pair of windproof fingerless gloves from Patagonia, which are more suitable for winter.

    rogueish uses the same mittens that I have. They work well. Another choice if it's not too cold is liner gloves, which can be picked up at any good outdoor equipment shop. Liner gloves tend to be fitting gloves, which makes it a lot easier to manipulate shutter controls, and to operate your light meter.

    I use both. That, and pockets I was up at the Athabasca Glacier (Jasper National Park in Alberta) on the weekend, and it was pretty darn cold - I think it was -7 to -10C, with a howling wind. Since I was only about a hundred feet from the car, I made due with my pockets. Thank god for heated seats in the car tho
    Cheers!

    Outdoor Research windstopper gloves. They are nice.

    REI carries gloves that are bloth fingertipless gloves with a pull over sleeve to turn them into mittons. They have rubberized pads so the thumb can still adhere to things. They are great. Warm, and convertible so that you can use the fingertips without the interference of the gloves. I will try and remember to put in the link in a while.

    Just look under men's clothing and then go to gloves and mitts, there are lots there.
