I'm carrying out field recordings for a college project of ambiaances; so far my NT4 has been fine for the city ambiences due to the due to the healthy signal/noise ratio. But, I plan on going out and recording more remote countryside ambiences.
I've been given the OK to bring out my colleges B&K 4006s to do the quiet recording with - I plan on running them through a Sound Devices 442 into a Marantz PMD-661.
I've been warned that they're highly sensitive to air moisture and humidity. Does anyone have any experience of nominal temperatures/atmospheric conditions with these mics? I'm in Ireland, so as long as the rain stays away (!) it's very temperate.
Will having them in the blimps help protect them from any minor fluctuations in moisture etc?

There's a great article in the recent "Nagra News" about a field recording trip to Antartica. The field recordist used a pair of 4006 (DPA not B&K though) in Rycotes. Got to imagine if they will hold up there, they will work for you. They are certainly beautiful sounding mics, having recorded with them before (in a more controlled environment though).
