What would happen in the (ant)arctic or Siberia on a cold winter day (-80F, say), if you transferred your images in the warmth of your hut/house and started the day with an empty camera memory, ready to be filled with a couple of hundred pics?
Would you run out of camera memory that quickly to even worry. Your LCD would go blank, no doubt very soon after being out "there", but who really cares, as long as the battery lasts and the camera does not ice over. I would just go for it and review later by the fire of the hearth. Toes be damned!
Or is this workflow too hard to keep up with in extreme climates ? Just wondering as to the why of your question? Can you explain a bit.
Is your question just academic, so to speak?
