Adventure with the Canon Powershot G12 - University of Pennsylvania

Last December 9, 2010, when the high temperature was 34 degrees Fahrenheit and the low temperature was 17 degrees Fahrenheit, the wife and I went for a drive to the University of Pennsylvania in the City of Brotherly Love - Philadelphia. I thought it was a good time to put the Canon G12 through some-severe-cold-winter test. After all, I haven't really used it for extended periods in the "great" outdoors back then.


So while the wife was in a meeting with other astrophysicists, I walked around campus and took some shots. The G12 performed admirably and it was actually I who gave up first - it was so cold that my fingers went numb. The camera itself got very cold but the battery lasted for less than a hundred shots before the level went down a notch. (In case you didn't know, the battery gets depleted much faster when the temperature goes down.)


Here are some sample shots taken that day.
