"Regarding real-life experience with these gloves, and considering that I make extensive use of tripods and glass filters during my photo sessions, I can say that these gloves are the most ergonomic I’ve ever used. Removing the finger caps or putting them back in place quickly became second nature, and in a few days I forgot I was using them."
"To date, I know of only one reputable glove designed for photographers: Vallerret. I got the Markhof gloves a couple years ago, and just recently upgraded to Vallerret’s Markhof 2.0 gloves. These are an absolute must for winter photography: they have a great weight-to-warmth ratio and flip tips so you can operate your camera or phone."
"Not only do these gloves keep my hands toasty warm with Thinsulate insulation and a 100% merino wool lining, but with the FlipTech finger caps, I can interact with my camera's buttons and dials with ease - and without having to remove my gloves."
"It’s the flip-top tips to the index finger and thumbs of the gloves that make the Ipsoot gloves so well suited to photographers. They mean that you can feel the buttons and dials of your camera, and use the touchscreen, then flip the tops back down to keep warm."
"What make’s the Nordic gloves photography gloves, is the flip-off ends to the forefingers and thumbs. These open from the palm side and flip back so the tips of those two fingers and thumbs are exposed. The glove tips are kept out of the way by magnets which hold them against the glove."
"The Vallerret Alta Over-Mitt Photography Gloves do a great job of keeping your fingers warm in very cold conditions. That insulation works and mittens tend to be a better option than gloves in extreme cold."
"But what I really like about these gloves is how thin, yet warm they are. Previous photography gloves I have worn have been too bulky, limiting my finger movements. And while I’m not playing piano out there, having that extra dexterity of movement allows me to insert a memory card or turn an exposure compensation dial quite naturally."
