Hi,

I've read some related posts (thanks Trekman and others).

I'm going to Aconcagua (22,834ft) on January 19th and hope to bring up a D200 (if I can find one in time!). I'll be happy to share my experience when I get back.

Like Trekman, I am converting from an F100. I have carried an F5 to 20,000ft summits. Film has always been the best for mountaineering, but the post-processing advantages and convenience of digital can't be beat. It is time for me to change over!

Any advice on:

1. Storing 2.5 weeks of RAW shots? Should I just buy a bunch of Extreme III's and edit off the viewfinder? I need to carry everything up to the high camp (~20,000 ft). The hard drive units such as the Epson P-2000 and PhotoChute seem to have a limited charge. I plan to bring several batteries and solar charge off a Brunton Solar Roll.

2. I know batteries that are WARM will shoot for longer, but will they lose their charge if they are stored in the cold and not used?

3. Does the EN-EL3e have a 12V car charger (this is the most efficient (and only?) way to solar charge batteries from what I heard)?

Thanks guys!
Yeti
