I've owned a pair of these for about three years and I think they're perfect for Photography!
They were a very nice Christmas gift from the Wife: she got them from Adorama,
Aquatech Sensory Gloves, Size: Extra Large, 9-9.5" - Black/Moss (They come in other sizes.)

I'm a very happy customer of both Adorama and B&H Audio– tale your pick.
I thought the price was reasonable for the quality and how well they function– they're very light
its very easy to get your finger and/or thumb in/out of the openings.

Adorama has a "Flaspoint Finger shooting glove that I like. Warmer than you would expect and nice design for shutter/button finger. $22

That's what I do up here in northern Minnesota. I wear a pair of Blackhawk tactical shooting gloves inside a pair of mittens. Mittens come off to shoot while the gloves allow good tactile feel of the camera controls.

For super cold I use the Cabelas Mitten/glove that has Windstopper fabric and Thinsulate insulation. It has 1/2 fingures on glove portion and a mitten cover for the 4 fingers that are 1/2s. There is a magnet in the flip open part (mitten) that holds it opne on closed. I wear light glove underneath, like naturalist, but in this case I don't need to remove mitten or teather it.

I think geography has allot to do with the glove(s) that you wear in cold weather. The gloves with the slide off finger tips would never work in Wisconsin where I live. The best combination I have found for cold weather is a lightweight glove inside of a glo/mitt. It's possible to do most shooting with both glove layers, adjustments in ISO, EC etc can be done by flipping the mitt part off. In very cold weather I shove heatpacks inside the gloves and in super cold weather I wear heavy mittens with a remote release inside the mitten. Tripod shooting is the best thing you can do to keep hand warm, nothing chills them faster then continually holding on to a metal camera body.

Hi Fran -- Your gloves look as they should work great. I live in South Dakota and the weather can be cold and nasty at times. I've always just worn wool glove liners from any of the farm stores and they have always worked perfect for me. Able to use all camera controls and keep reasonably warm at the same time.
