Winter gloves for photography

 

Every year, I go through the ritual of searching for the perfect glove for shooting in winter.  In the old days of film cameras, especially large format models like my 4x5 Graflex or Linhof Technikardan, a little bit of bulk was not a huge issue.  But now, with digital cameras and the tiny buttons we need access to, thinner is better.  My fantasy is surgical gloves with a heating element to keep the figures toasty on those cold days in the mountains.

In the past few years, my best solution was thin polyester glove liners with latex dots on the fingers as my first layer, and convertible fleece mittens that could be opened up to reveal the fingers.  Here are a few resources.

This year, I've purchased Seirus All Weather Gloves, but am looking to bring in samples of other models from other companies to do an extensive test.  Stay tuned.
