    Default Con-Cor Gloves

    Has anyone tried these, or suggest an alternative: http://www.con-cor.com/Gloves.html

    Winter photography gloves, where the finger tips flip open to adjust/fine tune the settings on the camera.

    Look very interesting, but I wonder if their warm in winter. Canadian winter........

    Years ago I cut a couple of finger tips off some army surplus wool gloves so I could operate my camera. Personally, I think the flip back finger tips would just be a PITA and drive the cost of this commercial product up.

    I did that last year while filming in November. I took an old pair of gloves and just snipped off the finger tips.
    I was able to keep filming and my hands didn't freeze!!

    FWIW, I use 'fingerless' wool gloves for winter fishing. My hands usually stay pretty warm, even when wet. I didn't make the gloves but they were only abt $5 (probably more now).

    I had some like yours Gene, but as I recall they were called "millers mits" Tips of all fingers were exposed similar to the first picture. They were a very course woolen yarn. A web search did not revieal any results under that name. Odd. They did keep my hands suprisingly warm.

    My challenge is I'm trying to find an all in one glove. Warmth, ability to operate the small buttons on a camera, with a sense of grip from a tactical sense.

    If I cut off tips, the finger tips are exposed. Brrrrrr. If I use the mitts I've always called smokers gloves where a mitt flips up over the gloves that have the tips off. Unfortunately I can't use those in a tactical situation.

    I decided to try out some flies from North Face. Sportchek had them on sale this week for $14.

    They seem warm-ish and I brought in my little point and shoot and was able to operate all the little buttons.

    Bring on winter!

    I just use Air Force Nomex flight gloves when it's cold. They give a pretty good tactile feel and a good into pretty chilly weather. When it gets too cold I have a pair of large (big enough to fit my hands with the flight gloves on) ski mittens that I can keep on, until I am ready to take a shot.
    N'joy the day.
    Thanks,
