    Default Gloves for photography

    I was searching on different camera forums this morning for suggestions for gloves to wear for taking pictures. Regular winter gloves (ski gloves) are too bulky to easily hold a camera and make pressing buttons and dials.

    Something I never thought of before (didn't know it even existed) that a few posts talked about was winter golf gloves.

    So I took a run to Concord today and picked up a pair at Dick's Sporting Goods.

    They're thin, fleece/lycra type material with leather "grippies" on the palm side and fingers. Works like a champ for shooting pix!

    And they don't let the air through (at least they didn't today and it was fairly windy in Meredith).

    I got the WinterSof gloves from FootJoy: http://www.footjoy.com/catalog/mens.asp?c=46

    What's everyone else using for "photography gloves" ?

    I have been looking at Patagonia's heavyweight liners. But, your find might work better.

    Should also mention I've had frostbite on my shooting fingers.

    I'm not a photographer, but i fly fish and need finger dexterity as well, i bought these great fleece fingerless gloves from Cabellas that have a mitt that pulls over them when needed.

    Well, the golf gloves worked great at Harris Hill yesterday. My fingers started to get a little cold towards the end of the day, but I figure all the thin gloves that still give you dexterity will do that.

    Spyboy, just an FYI cuz i know you're an iphone user too...Marmot makes a glove that has a special material on the finger that lets you use the touch screen without taking off the glove. Not photo related, but still cool

    Excellent! My phone rang a few times while I was shooting, and I had to pull the glove off to answer (the downside to a touch screen)

    Black Diamond and Outdoor Research make a lot of good, thin gloves and/or liners. I have http://www.bdel.com/gear/stormweight.php from Black Diamond. Relatively warm, and windproof, considering how thin/light they are. Have some grip to them too.

    My wife put a pair of Seal Skinz gloves in my stocking for Christmas two years ago. I think she found them on sale at Beans. They are great for camera work and other activites in the cold and damp. I pull a pair of mittens over when snow blowing the drive. Good grip, waterproof, and warm on their own into the teens. I lent them to an intern on the summit over Thanksgiving when he was deicing and he liked them alot. Link to a decent priced pair.

    I think these are what my son used the day we were on MW summit taking pictures. He never put on anything warmer and was fine all day.
