Olympus, Nikon, Canon, Sony, Panasonic all offer weather resistant models but you have to make sure you have the right lenses too

The problem is that 'weather resistance' makes no specific claims with regard to low temperature (or anything else for that matter) and does not affect the warranty terms - you're still only being sold a camera guaranteed to work within the manufacturer's specified temperature range, whatever that is.

Just remembered... Kai that does the Bokeh! Tests froze a Canon 7D into a block of ice and it worked fine after it was defrosted and dried, look that up!

It would be unlikely that freezing and thawing would adversely affect a camera. The question bing asked is will it work while frozen.
