Hi Alexander,

If you get this , your R8 should be just fine!  I've used mine at a lot
colder than -18, about - 35! :)  And it worked just fine.

At present I'm using the new re-chargable power pack which attaches to the
bottom of the winder and it works perfect from the tropics to the arctic.

Have a good trip and many great exposures.
