I have a Canon XSi, with the kit lens and a Canon 50 compact macro with the converter. At some point before the trip I also plan on buying a telephoto.
This coming January, I will be headed to Germany and Switzerland and in particular the Alps. I hope to bring my gear along(I don't know if I will need the super macro gear, but you never know). My concerns are the temperatures and the elevation.
My first question, is if I will experience any problems with this gear. Last year, in the same area I had a Canon S2IS get an E8 error. I understand that this error just occurs after a while, but it happened while I was standing on a bridge overlooking Neuschwanstein Castle, so if it was a coincidence, it was a really frustrating one.
My second question is fairly contingent on the first, if I will experience these issues, how to protect against them? What kind of precautions can I take ahead of time to prevent them and deal with them if they occur.
Thanks in advance!
