  Roger-

  Here are some observations from a digital shooter relative to extreme 
conditions. He seems to be an interesting and knowledgeable guy... a climber, 
arctic explorer, and designer of camera systems for NASA...

        Except Carlos that today's climbers of the highest peaks shoot plastic, 
battery dependent, not 100% manual cameras.

        So it sounds like the old wives are telling tales again... ;-)

          It is lighter than the Rollei 35 (320g vs 225g) because it is plastic

          so robust like the Rollei 35, it could be a climbing camera for hills

          Col in the Everest at about 8000m (26000 feet)
