Can You advice me the optimal Fan mode on CineAlta F900 on frosty (-10, -15 C) weather? After working about 6 hours, camera switched off spontaneously and doesn't switchs on. Symptoms - panel with timecode does not switches on, in viewfinder shown only grey area. No picture on control monitor.

Thank's for any advice.

I'm no expert, but I know that the F900 runs very hot and is designed to run hot. I wouldn't think you should have the fan on at all. Let the camera keep itself warm. But maybe this is just too cold and you need to cover the camera at all times to help keep it warm.
