Where I live the temperature is hovering around 20 degrees Fahrenheit ... How cold does it have to be to damage a camera?

How about Minus 25 Fahrenheit. I used mine at those sort of temperatures. The battery is the main problem, it is good to keep a spare in your packet.

Also be careful returning camera to warmth as it is liable to steam up.
