When it snows, it snows
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: I was in Ushuaia in February, their Autumn. It snowed and it was wonderful. Wear waterproof shoes that are slip proof. Dress for the cold = hat, gloves, scarves. Dress in layers of clothing as it's warm inside the air conditioned stores but pretty cold outside.
Photo Equipment: It's very picturesque so bring plenty of memory for your camera. That saying, if you run out you should have no problem stocking up.
Miscellaneous: Also remember that in the Southern hemisphere the ozone layer is thinnest here and so wearplenty of sun protection, even when the snow is falling.

Weather in Ushuaia
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Its average winter temp is 1C, while its summer average is 9C, so it is rather moderate in temperature, but has the possibility for extreme swings.
Hiking boots for wet/muddy grounds are advised. Waterproof jackets are too.
Summer, not as we know it.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Take good walking shoes because the streets are up and down hill.
Also take some clothes to layer, just because it is summer doesn't mean that you will not need some clothes to keep you warm.
Plus you will need a rain repellant jacket.
The weather is very changeable.

Miscellaneous: Do not forget the sun block! I am not kidding; sun is quite dangerous at these latitudes.
No olviden el protector solar; no estoy bromeando, el sol es bastante peligroso en estas latitudes.
