The tip about keeping a warm battery handy is a good one.  I had a D50 go a bit wonky once shooting around 0F.  But it recovered with a battery change and worked the rest of the day.

I think the biggest problem shooting cold isn't the temperature per se, but the condensation that can occur on the electronics going from a warm humid indoor environment to a cold outdoor environment (or back again).  I think that's what happened to the D50.  One approach is to let the camera acclimate to the cold for a while before shooting.
