I use my camera under those cold conditions before, no problems. Just note the battery may not last as long. Happy shooting.

Aside from the SEARCH we even have a STICKY right here in this section called:

Sticky: problems with dslr in extremely cold weather?

PLEASE try to search before posting something that gets asked over and over and over and over again!!!!

FYI, some basic common sense would tell you:
1. If you need special precautions, it would be in the MANUAL of your camera.
2. Almost all camera designers/manufacturers are from Japan. It gets cold in Japan. ergo....?

Nope. I want you to read the stickies here and search first, as is part of the CS terms of use you signed up for.

To prevent condensation.. you should put your camera into a ziploc bag (and seal it tight) before you enter a warmer and more humid environment (e.g. a bldg).

Just bring extra batteries and avoid sudden drastic changes in temperature to prevent fogging, other than that no problem. Read the stickies for more detailed info and discussion

One trick to keep battery working is to keep it warm before putting into the cam.

Rub it, keep in your jacket or whatever.
