Great information! But when I saw the fingerless gloves used in frigid temeratures, I wondered how I could change a roll of film.

Manual exposure: The local photography club had a challenge to create panoramas. To me, it made sense to meter for the darkest area and set my Canon A-1 to manual so that each photograph wouldn't have different shutter speeds or apertures.

Exposure compensation: I use that a lot. I usually set it to -2/3 for sunrises and sunsets.
