Panasonic joins Sir Fiennes on ‘The Coldest Journey’

In Industry News On

Hailed as the greatest challenge of human endeavour – crossing the Antarctic in winter – with 24-hour darkness and temperatures plunging below -70°C, the 2,000 mile expedition led by Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Britain’s best known polar explorer, set sail for Antarctica on 6 December 2012. The hope is to reach the Ross Ice Shelf in January, at which point the Ice Team will disembark for their perilous journey. A two man ski team will then begin their walk, leading the way for the rest of the group.

Panasonic was chosen as the official technology partner for ‘The Coldest Journey’ expedition on account of the reliability of Panasonic hardware and its performance. At the heart of the operation will be Panasonic’s P2 Solid State Technology and the AG-HPX250 handheld camera recorder (pictured).
