I think you misunderstand what causes the condensation.

Condensation is usually caused by humidity in the indoor air, not in the outdoor air.

Hot air can contain a lot of water and usually does indoor. When you carry a cold camera into a building, the camera will cool the air around it. Now the air is too cold to contain the amount of water it contained before, so some of this water will leave the air and instead condensate on the nearest surface.

Yes even in cold dry places there can be a lot of moisture in the air indoors

I read somewhere that extreme cold causes lcd displays to crack. How true is this?

No idea.

Cold can certainly make LCD displays refresh slower. If you can, I'd turn it off as it only drains more power from the batteries.
